    Pros

    People at Sasol are great. Very friendly environment and the company always tries to move forward. Good place if you want to stay in one position and are comfortable being stagnate and receiving your regular 3-5% raise every year.

    Cons

    South Africa is the headquarter parent company and has an agenda to fulfill, so do the people that they send to work in the US. HR does not help one bit and now that oil is going down people are getting laid off to save money but yet they bring others to replace them.

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating your people. Good ones are starting to leave.

    Pros

    Well-structured Remuneration package. Company values supports Triple bottom line.

    Cons

    Perceived favouritism in all levels The Company is always "re-structuring" which can create a feeling of uncertainty(not sure of your job) and a feeling of being just a number. Work-life balance is not always a priority. Once you have reached your ceiling in your current job role its difficult to progress inside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in Leadership & Team building.
