    nothing specific, I think the management is competent and is doing the best it can in the current hard economic circumstances

    Pros

    Great pay, great training program, a lot of opportunity for growth. You will meet people from all over the world and have the opportunity to travel all over the world

    Cons

    They will work you until you drop. Expect to sleep in the back of pickups at dig sites you will likely be living at for days at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for the little guy. My location of ~20 engineers and operators experienced over 30 resignations in the year before and during my arrival, mostly due to an overzealous FM and little to no recourse for the operators and engineers
