    Pros

    Sasol is a well established (60 years) business with stability in its operations and its commitment as a responsible employer.
    Sasol’s pro-employee approach made it a good employer, even in the most challenging economic conditions, accommodating employees even beyond what would be expected in the most labour protective environment.
    The company’s continued growth, international footprint and diversity of operations (upstream, downstream/chemicals, R&D, new energy, retail, etc) makes it a company where people can move, while maintaining stability while achieving personal growth.

    Cons

    Sasol is like most multinational companies structured for shareholder and legal requirements in such a way to comply with certain reporting requirements – this furthermore necessitates formal approval processes which can be experienced as bureaucratic.
    The engineering foundation of Sasol has lead to a climate where employees (including all functional areas) are challenged to have a “scientific” justification for doing work – this can be intimidating for employees who are uncomfortable with line managers who are challenging “thinkers”.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sasol has a very stable and solid value proposition for prospective employees and even investors – Sasol should learn to market it as the company is expanding globally.
    Sasol is known in South Africa as one of the top companies to work, this needs to be translated to other countries and communities (with corresponding Corporate Citizenship behaviour).
