    Fun and exciting company to work for. IT making a real difference to operational efficiency and safety.

    IT Project Manager (Current Employee) Brisbane (Australia)

    ProsProfessionalism, global teams are helpful and welcoming. Exposure to very remote operations, with real challenges, and grateful people. Technology is very much an enabler, and not something that is ever forgotten about.

    ConsNone - I'd work there again!

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllowing the global network team leads to travel to remote office is a real boost to productivity and really helps the more remote teams feel more engaged.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very rewarding; It is a place where you learn how to be resilient and how to think outside the box

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Flexible
    - Good mgmt support to implement your ideas (back it up with facts and stats)
    - Always trying to improve
    - Dynamic, fast pace
    - Great people

    Cons- Silos
    - Too many people involved in decision making
    - Growing too fast hence constant change to accomodate the environment (I don't mind but this is not for everyone)

    Advice to Senior Management- keep focusing on execution
    - before trying to be world class let's work on the basics
    - process improvement is key (I think the appetite is there) but too much initiatives at the same time get people away from what's important - let's take baby steps
    - keep communicating the goals and vision of the company

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
