    Pros

    Lovely people at lower level management levels and below, trying to do the best they can, interesting sites

    Cons

    Boys club; too many initiatives' no systems that work, too busy focusing on new toys such as digital without fixing the chaos below, culture of blame, wants the 'silver' bullet to fix things not do the slog and the fundamentals. Lots of fluent bull-shit speaking non-deliverers who get rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the initiatives, focus on the basics, start managing down not up.

    Pros

    Challenging place that provides several opportunities to learn multiple mining methods. Good people to work with and nice working culture.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, understaffed and lack of efficient systems in place. Upper management is trying to tackle on too many things at once.

    Advice to Management

    Make clear decisions and give freedom for people to decide things on their own. Provide big picture guidance only and roll any changes out adequately. Promote an environment where people can give constructive input without being labeled as negative.
