    I have been working at Sasol

    Pros

    Interesting and stimulating work as part of the global petrochemical scene
    A company facing many complex challenges and good growth opportunities
    Willing to take risks
    Can be innovative

    Cons

    Complex corporate politics
    Increasingly bureaucratic
    Over centralisation
    Senior appointments sometimes difficult to understand and better candidates are often overlooked
    Very slow to stop projects once it becomes clear they are not feasible or there are better alternatives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many time consuming and costly initiatives
    More focus on a clear and compelling strategy
    Review and simplify the multiple reviews and committees involved in project approvals
    Cull projects which are not feasible sooner. Significant money and scarce resources have been expended on project evaluations when it is evident to team members the project is not viable or there are better alternatives.
    More focus on strategy and innovation and less on executing a list of projects

    Pros

    Remuneration is above average compared to similar employers in the market...

    Cons

    The culture rewards loyalty as opposed to talent and hard work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The key to retaining talent is rewarding hard work and talent, not how long one has been working for the company...
