Pros & Cons

  • Flexibility and work-life balance Support, you feel like a member of the team Variety in work content and the opportunity to develop and be challenged.
  • Exciting industry to be in.
  • Culture - everyone is very friendly and supportive (personally and professionally).
  • Some nice people here.
  • Flexibility, very friendly atmosphere.
  • Some cultural aspects, such as safety attitudes.
  • Minimal transparency on opportunities being available.
  • Depending on what team you are in you may be required to do a significant amount of work that does not utilise your tertiary level of education (typical of teams that do not have well established roles for graduates). I do understand though that someone has to do this work and a graduate is the most likely candidate...but it should not dominate in terms of time.
  • Graduate work is quite unfulfilling; lack of openness to fresh ideas.
  • Slightly bureaucratic.

Management
High level management is very accessible and an effort is made to have a relationship between the upper and lower level roles. There is the opportunity to ask questions and advice from higher management and a large number of informal opportunities.
