    Lack of career progression within the company. Performance reviews are just a tick sheet exercise. Poor renumeration package. Difficult to get Annual Leave. Poor communication. No 'Team' culture. Job can become monotonous.

    Long hours especially when flights delayed. Overnights on mine sites not that exciting.
