Amazing products and some great people but sometime let down by the tunnel vision of management. Not all divisions are the same so this can vary but on the whole I would say its a good company to work for.

All employees are very down to earth. There is not a lot of work life balance. You are pushed to do more hours than what you think to get all of your work done. Management do not care about your personal situation, they just want the work done.

The most bull job you will ever come across in your life! Manager has her own little favourites which leaves the rest of us out! Worked here more than a year and was given many responsibilities that wasn't part of my work agreements and wasn't worth the pay either. Manager offered permanent I said yes and everytime Id asked her bout it she kept coming up with different excuses. She is very unreliable and UNFAIR on us casuals.. WE ARE TREATED DIFFERENTLY IN THIS SECTION WITH HER!! :)

I was working with the factory manager to change the structure of the production line hence produce more transformers within the same time frame and cost.
This was required to meet the government new projects.

Most of the time I worked alone.
Trained myself during my spare time.

Invested into software and computer hardware to learn and understand its functions and able to modify without relying on others to keep up to date with the changing world of technology.

Management always had limited resources, difficult to go forward if others have been chosen instead.

Every year new software and hardware upgrades and systems arrive unless part of initial team difficult to catch up eventually in time able to preform duties the same as everybody else.
Pros
Large projects sufficient funds and time to develop new designs
Cons
Small jobs must be done quickly no time for rework.

Pros
Good starting place for a new graduate or new in country

Has multiple layers of management making day to day job hard
