The role involved a lot of inventory movement to supply the manufacturing workstations. The company was going through a transition phase which made things a bit difficult but it was a learning curve.

FLSmidth has very complex business structure, and the departments work in silos.
The key strength with FLSmidth are the employees being very committed and wanting to improve their work.

Shift work, boring, no career progression, super toxic environment. Management belittle and ignore the experience of their employees. Yes men get promoted high within the organisation. No employee respect even after 10 years of service.

Plus side, you don't have to care about work ethic to much because no one else does, and the regular paycheck is nice.

I had a lot of opportunities to learn about various products. The team I worked with was very welcoming and helpful. The branch manager was an understanding person. There were great learning opportunities within the company. The merger with FLSmidth caused a lot of imbalance and retrenchment, which led to the shutdown of Adelaide office and all of us losing our jobs.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Nothing

FL Smidth has a very negative work environment, it has unresolved bullying issues where many staff have quit due to management not caring, multiple unexplained instances where staff are let go with no reasoning, poor management and the list goes on...
Pros
BBQ if you work a weekend shift.
Cons
Poor management - staff members are not looked after.

Many good aspects, especially when the market is in good shape. However, very poor upper and middle management who work hard to protect themselves rather than the broader company. It is a company managed by crisis rather than looking ahead. This is demonstrated by round after round of lay-offs with no vision for the future. In the melee, middle management uses the opportunity to remove anyone who is a challenge to themselves - the FOSS (fear of superior skills) syndrome.
Pros
Good salary, lot of good people below management levels
Cons
See above

Fast paced environment to ensure customer requirements and tight schedules are met.Due to lack of robust systems in place there were abundant opportunities to implement new initiatives to deliver maximum value whilst working within company guidelines.
A friendly professional environment with very good working conditions

to achieve positive results.

My role was enjoyable whilst challenging due to numerous areas of inefficiency within the company however as new initiatives were implemented and results reflected the positive change this provided great satisfaction and drive to continue.

Management were supportive of the changes however due to downturn in the market conditions there was a change in culture and the management support network deteriorated.

Much was learned within the mining sector from understanding customer requirements to delivering best practice under at times difficult conditions.

Enjoyable and challenging company.
