    Pros

    Salaries at Thiess were very good. It was quite social in the city. On site, social life would depend on the project. Was very corporate at the end and they worked you pretty hard and you did a lot of overtime, even if the pay was good. A lot of dedicated people who has been there for a long time.

    Cons

    Long hours. Was very corporate at the end and they worked you pretty hard and you did a lot of overtime, even if the pay was good.
