    I have been working at South32 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Supportive management, ability to influence culture

    Cons

    Pathways upwards non-existent. Very rarely are those within the team promoted upwards, usually new hires get supervisor/management roles. Some pay disparity between identical roles. Long term goals are set by employees, but frequent role changes / secondments can quickly derail any progress.
