It really depends on each department. It's a great culture; my issue was the poor management who did not promote growth and did not give equal opportunities. It's a great company with great benefits. They need to focus on the leadership department.
Pros
13th cheque, gain sharing
Cons
No flexible hours

Shutdown is a fast paced kind of work where you work for long hours. I learned everything happens to the time frame and must be done correctly. We work in teams to be more productive. The hardest part is outcast and incast. The most enjoyable part for me is the plasser machines which makes me anxious the way the operate them.
Pros
Free uniform and lunches
Cons
Long hours

Training is something lacking, it's available but not orginized timeiously and some people appointed as managers raise an eyebrow. Managers are appointed then have to be trained in that position??????Discipline is also a factor that needs looking into, to many loop hole's and employees get away with murder.
Pros
Can't think of any at this stage
Cons
Bad discipline hearings, inexperienced chair people.

Typical day you have to run around and are treated like a slave.You cant learn much there for they allways need you on the job,Only certain people gets training and you need to be in there good books.Culture is good it just needs more work for all colours.Hardest part off job is you can do your best , they allways untankfull, and just say you get payed to do it.Most enjoyable part of job is , nowing you set a plant machine and equipment correct and see the production running.Nowing you can work without the guidance of a supervisor.And doing fault finding on machine systems and fix it super good.
Pros
Braai end of year and very good quality tools and equipment
Cons
Stressfull hours and if you in a overhaul in maintenance work is not epreciated.
