Above industry average in total financial remuneration, unfortunately there are glaring deficiencies in relation to culture, management and leadership, and the general work environment.
A corrupt and toxic culture of blatant nepotism, backed by an insidious undercurrent of intimidation, harassment and bullying by key personnel in managerial and leadership roles is rampant throughout numerous areas of the Fortescue operation. A well acknowledged and subsequently ignored group of highly positioned personnel (referred to as the purple circle) leverage their positions to promote a working environment that is beneficial only to the few and not the many, often resulting in a fear to speak out and act on overt displays that are counter to the visions and values of the company.
The work is uninspiring, bland and repetitive. Job enrichment, expansion and opportunity is non-existent, despite requests and actions to "step-up". Empowerment, a value of the organisation, is met with road blocks, ridicule, fear and in some cases bullying. As a organisation it is apparent that it is very much "jobs for the boys".
