    Pros

    The salary is good.
    It is alleged the biggest mining company.

    Cons

    A text book example of bureaucracy, office politics, dysfunctional communication, and operational inefficiency.

    Talk the talk of walk the talk, but never walk.

    Condescending attitude from HR and middle management, dictating from senior management.

    Ridiculous "clean office" policy, yet heard multiple times staffs who privately complain it talk about how good it is in office.

    Advice to Management

    Do the opposite of what Marius did.

  2. Good place to start your career
