Great environment to develop and progress career although this depended on line manager. Culture changed a lot when there was a change in CEO and this impacted morale

A typical day at work for me would be continuously working on how to communicate with the different personalities within the team. I learnt a lot within the team, from contracts and the information that goes in to it down to how important the integrity of data is that goes into the system.
The hardest part of the job was adjusting my working style to suit each individual within the team and keeping the peace.

The most enjoyable part was being able to work with such fantastic, hardworking, dedicated people.
Pros
Free gym
Cons
Long hours

Pros

If there was a problem i would have to fix it

I found Hatch to be a good place to work. It's a private company owned by share holders who work for Hatch and this is a positive element of the culture. My colleagues were great to work with.

Staff members are all look out for each other and are kind, but some of the higher up management team need to be more caring for when they are making one of their team members redundant.

Working along side fellow professionals in the various Engineering Fields, working as a team to deliver successful projects to clients. Applying out of the box thinking to solve issues that had the potential to impact on a successful project outcome.
Increasing the capacity, improving the process or the application of new technologies to address issues that impact the profit bottom line are some of the challenges faced on a daily basis.
Pros
Generosity
Cons
Limited to the type of service that can be delivered

Typical work day began with an early morning Gym workout followed with contact to customers onsite or Suppliers of Goods and Services depending on the project I was on at the time.

I became proficient with a number of systems Oracle, iPas, Office suite, reverse auction platforms i.e. Ariba and free market.


Management was supportive and progressive enabling personal growth and encouraging innovation with a strong Safety culture.


Driving Suppliers was the part that was the hardest for me as it is against my character to be hard or aggressive with people to achieve goals, but was required to ensure that people followed the Specifications agreed to.


Amongst the best people I have met and worked with in my Career still friends with many.
Pros
Gym and morning teas
Cons
Being made redundant

Working in a Class-A Reserve environment (in Barrow Island) and modular type of oil & gas plant construction is very interesting and challenging while working with colleagues & workers from many countries & culture is enhancing and a very valuable experience.

An interesting part of my job role is navigating the management computer system, to obtain and process information for day-to-day project use and periodic management reporting.


Though an 11-hours workday, 7-days a week, working FIFO on a 20-days on/10-days off rotation is good.
Pros
Free meal, accommodation, and travel
Cons
Workers are confined in the camp after work hours as the location is a class-A reservation
