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.

In the Service area, the team are all like minded and supportive

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.

Interesting job with lots of products and departments

Fast paced, vast range of products spread over many different departments. Very health and safety conscious company. Many levels of management but all were supportive.

High profile company

Self-learning and a dedicate person is needed to join the company. Management only interest in figure and profit. a strong connection person will benefit your position

Management

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!! :) excuses!excuseShe'unreliablanunreliable

Good Atmosphere

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.

Always learning up to date technology, new software and hardware

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.

Good Place to settle for a job but not ideal for advancement

Its a great place and company to work for if you are happy where you are. Rising the ladder is very challenging. Current management has lost the plot.

Pros

Good starting place for a new graduate or new in country

Cons

Has multiple layers of management making day to day job hard
