      Pros

      Work with a talented and caring bunch of team members. Salary and benefits great. If you are prepared to stretch yourself there are many opportunities for professional growth and Mobility. Internal language and posture improving in areas of environment, diversity and respect. Trying hard to break down "typical miner" attitudes and culture.

      Cons

      Not immune to global organisation heavy weight processes. Require experience and people networks to cut across organisation silos.

      Pros

      Used to be good several years ago, but has been run into the ground bit by bit over the last couple of years

      Cons

      Resistance to change Archaic processes/software Clueless management who bring in awful processes to try to 'fix' major structural issues with how departments are run without actually listening to the people in the teams who know what they're doing Below market pay No value placed on training upcoming engineers 'properly'. They get thrown in the deep end with zero mentoring or coaching
