    I worked at Boart Longyear full-time (more than 5 years)


    Grew my career while learning a lot. Great team mates, good opportunities - at least for me.


    Cyclical nature of business made it very challenging. Boom to Bust leads to uncertainty and can make long term planning - both personally and work related - challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Be very aware of the need to plan for both upsides and downsides, as it can be hard to predict the market.

    The top guys/gal running IT know little to nothing about IT (they got promoted into their positions when they fired the CIO and others). They are poker players so watch what you say.

Although the majority of Boart Longyear's business is geared toward mining activities, the company also caters to industrial businesses that utilize its hard metal and diamond technologies.
