    I worked at Thiess for less than a year

    Pros

    - Very high focus on safety, in particular positive communication both in and out of the active mining area - High attention to detail and comparatively young work force in management - Very flexible program, try to let you experience all aspects of the department you're in

    Cons

    Nothing really comes to mind, they were a great company to gain work experience with. The only thing that could be improved is the organisation of the program itself.

    I worked at Thiess full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company benefits with fortnightly gatherings. Opportunity for growth within the company if projects are won. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Old fashioned boy club mentality. If you aren't in the boys club you won't be invited to social events or have opportunities for higher positions. Fell apart once Hochtief stripped down the company and released most of the long serving employees.

    Pros

    Great company. Good systems in place. Great people. Diverse projects. Excellent remuneration. High safety standards.

    Cons

    High stress levels and long hours. Accountability for poor performance isn't addressed quickly enough due to the fast pace and size of the job placing extra pressure on the high performers to pick up the slack.
