    As a chemical engineer in Sasol there is a lot of opportunities for growth and experience.
    Sasol allows chemical engineers to learn not only from other chemical engineers but all diciplines.
    Sasol has a high focus on safety an keeping their employees fit for the job.

    Cons

    The only negative is the adminstrative processes are a bit slow in Sasol. It is always difficult to find the correct person to speak to in order to resolve an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent when making decisions that effect others.

    Pros

    There is more than enough opportunities to make yourself valuable and have a stimulating career. Projects are complex and big thus resulting in valuable experience.

    Cons

    It is a big corporate, the wheels turn slowly and bureaucracy is part of it. Politics are plentiful but not more than any other company its size.

    Advice to Management

    Management should invest in the leadership (not management) abilty of its lower ranked employees.

    Pros

    Work, life balance supported and great benefits

    Cons

    Especially in Secunda - still very Afrikaner dominated. Afrikaans spoken in meetings, even thought none Afrikaans people are around

    Advice to Management

    Culture of Sasol especially at the bottom levels still needs a radical shange. Nice and well to speak about how it is supposed to change, but we need action
