Low wages, great team.
Low wages, immigrant visa staff. Insane workloads, no work /life balance, inconsiderate time-frames, very low wages, low staff moral, the work team are a fantastic bunch of lads, but the politics, backstabbing, no overtime penalty rates or shift work allowances made it a very unpleasant working environment.

Oh, and required site safety courses to be completed outside of work hours with no pay.

Large company with no loyalty / Bullying Culture
Management have alot of politics & back stabbing. Different rules apply to different people. Bullying from managers gets swept under the carpet. Electrix has a culture that rewards bad behavior & dishonest people.
Pros
Central work location, easy to get to
Cons
Being made redundant

Very less stressful and very less hard job.
1. The management was totally organized and they help whenever a person struck.
2. In terms of salary they pay good in comparisons to the work and also the overtimes were paid including with holidays in compensations.

3. The bosses were qualified and well organized. Therefore, the job is too much easy and less hard.

5. All of the colleagues were good and of very helping nature.

Large company with a lot of politics
Larger utility company with a few seperate departments. There seems to always be a lot of drama going on and a lot of back stabbing. Management are so far up the food chain they are almost god like, they are just so out of touch with what is going on. The groundstaff are all good but this is always an element of cheating going on, timesheets etc.
Pros
Job security if on the tools
Cons
Politics in the workplace, and backstabbing

A great place to learn and to improve your self in a well established company
Well established company with proper structures, processes and procedures in place. Strong contender in the Electrical and Gas construction world in New Zealand and Australasia. Best practices with health and safety as a focus to complete projects and send everyone home everyday with out harm.
My days start at 05:30, catching up with night shift supervisor and team leaders. Reports on what was done and how and what is still out standing to be done. Isolation's been done for 3rd party contractors working in the rail corridor. Then is to make sure we do emergency cover during train services till 23:45 every day.

Managing and planning maintenance, quoting for up coming projects and over seeing the projects.

We do have an amazing team of guys who can and will always be ready to help with a smile.

The best part of my job is to train new guys and working as a team and there is always something new to learn.
Pros
Central work location, easy to get to
Cons
Long Hours and always on Standby 24/7

My colleagues are a great fun bunch to work worth some had over 30 years industry experience and was always keen to assist in complex technical issues.

A good environment to work in.
Electrix company is located in New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. The company has over 2000 workers combined in the located countries that work various jobs such as fixing communication cables and street lights. The departments range from accounts, IT, Health and Safety to mention a few. The departments I worked for were Health and Safety and the HR Department. Both departments had stationed a work life balance for workers to help their well-being. And a good calm and friendly environment was established within the company's departments.
Pros
everyone is allocated a task according to their skills or competencies
