A company in transition
South32 is an organisation that is well intentioned and is finally moving away from the "Big Business" mentality and embracing a "mid-tier" mentality. Culturally, South32 is a great place to work, with good leadership, good culture and a fairly strong vision. This is evident in messaging and focus on growth projects. South32's more imminent problem is managing a very low margin portfolio which is very price sensitive, whilst pushing a growth agenda and relying on systems which are "Big Business" centric. Projects designed to reduce work have been paused, which in my view is short term thinking. This misalignment has resulted in a dangerously lean organisation with a high number of overworked people and multiple restructures. You will learn a lot at South32, but until this work imbalance is resolved, South32 will continue to experience low tenure and significant change. Sometimes you just need more people, plain and simple.

Bureaucracy and bullying rife
Toxic workplace. Command and control management - no trust and empowerment of people. Bullying senior managers allowed to destroy the confidence of all those that work there and are rewarded with promotions.
