    I worked at Anglo American

    Pros

    Pay was good. Good local & mine staff. People were nice to work with. Mines were clean and safe. Many professionals within the office. Flexible work hours (start and stop).

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours. Expected to be available on a moments notice (i.e. drop your plans). Many cannot take vacation time (multiple weeks carried over year after year). Expect to be called while you are on vacation! Executives are managers and not leaders! They talk a good talk!

    Pros

    7 and 7 work shift and ok pay.

    Cons

    Everytime you need a part or a repair it has to be okayed back in australlia. You can be asked for input on something from managemnt you give an honest answer and get replies like "I'll believe it when I see it" and when it happens they say well no one told me that and then go on to blame a local to save there individual ego.
