SRK Consulting are technical leaders in mineral resources sector and the global footprint results in endless resources being offered to employees. The corporate structure and career advancement is however very rigid and outdated, which results in a gap between management and general employees.
Pros
Great responsibility
Cons
Rigid Corporate Structure

Start at 8-9, Monday to Friday.
Receive work from the head of department or carry on with necessary work.

A lot of mapwork involved as well as flow rates in certain catchments.

Receiving help from others in the water department makes it more enjoyable and interesting as well as aiding in faster rates of learning.
