    I worked at Wesfarmers Industrial and Safety (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great location. Part of Wesfarmers which is great for your resume.

    Cons

    Widespread bullying amongst managers including senior managers. Frequent redundancies due to very poor performance in declining key markets (Mining and Manufacturing)

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Wesfarmers Industrial and Safety full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Team mates have great technical experience and are easy to get along with. Management have a pretty good handle on things.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape and bureaucracy for lazy people to hide behind if needed. Their whole job could be just to out up barriers to progress and change.

    Advice to Management

    Give the guys on the floor a reason to want to work. Ensure the company is always looking to improve or change the way things are done. Don't be shy of giving it a go and innovation from the floor up. Some ideas are worth spending money on. We are not Kodak.

    Pros

    My last team's cohesion and ability to work together towards goals

    Cons

    company does not seem to want to move forward fast enough. A lot of promises, but very little delivered both for staff and in terms of competitiveness. The salaries on offer were not on par with the industry either, and with me they did not seem to want to try harder to match it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in ensuring the company leads the market. This includes implementing initiatives, listening to and actioning employee suggestions and finally, keep up with the salary scales in the industry.
