A typical day comprises of a brief meeting with my project team about day tasks and admin management of department. Meeting with Senior Engineers and Program manager about project finances, cashflows, and progress tracking, technical issues with engineers. Writing technical specs and solutions for various projects. Drafting Technical Demand Requests for upcoming projects. Meetings with Supply chain department to track procurement progress. Field surveys and on site supervision and problem solving. The workplace culture is that of team work and camaraderie. I mostly enjoy developing solutions for customers.
Pros
Independent working
Cons
Long hours and tight deadlines

Engineering team was well knit together and supported each when going gets tough. Very professional environment little or no time of playing around . Occasionally on Fridays will have a braai during lunch usually month-ends. Management on the other side not very approachable when it comes to coming with new ideas. The culture is very strict almost military style. The hardest part of the job was dealing with very bureaucratic procurement process and most enjoyable is working on dredger layups at the dry-dock away from the office. I learned that team work can make department great.
Pros
Gym equipment on site
Cons
Strict management

I had the opportunity to complete my apprenticeship with this company and learned almost all the skills needed to work in the engineering industry. The workplace culture was what discouraged me from gaining full employment and I made the leap into the private sector.

My job is challenging, and exciting but the environment itself is a big deterrent in achieving my work goals and objective. There is clear set objectives set every financial year and a performance management system is in place to measure performance.
