    Good place to start, but not to stay

    Pros

    Working with great fellow machinists. The people in the craft are truly some of the best guys I’ve ever met. Being under their wing has set me up to have skills for the rest of my life.

    Cons

    Terrible terrible management in the maintenance department. They care nothing about work/life balance or our well being. Training is non existent you’re just expected to know how to do things. People are jumping ship because because their voices go unheard about how to run/fix equipment or the machinist craft better than what it is. DO NOT take this job if you don’t like overtime, your wife and kids will see very little of you. The turnover rate in the craft is crazy. Most plants can keep their machinist for 30 years. But the majority of the machinists here are under 4 years. Even crazier considering a contractor could not do what sasol machinist can do and sasol just doesn’t care. I’ve never seen management not have a care in the world about their people and throw their hands up in the air wondering why people are leaving. It’s asinine. I can’t even get into a fraction of how badly the machinist craft gets treated here.

    Pros

    Employees underneath management hierarchy want the best for the company and most strive to improve the company but receive lack of direction and focus from the top.

    Cons

    Company has undergone severe reorganization. Disjointed strategies and goals. Lots of chaos. Poor management (selfishness at the top). Poor pay and bonuses the last couple of years. Manufacturing plants are inefficient.
