Good environment, experienced and lively people in the field, low pay but a bit better once you are qualified. Other things like recklessness, carelessness, ignorance and other bad traits that I experienced over the years I worked there are part of life and I believe we get them everywhere.
Care for employees from business model and corporate social responsibilty, e.g) Medical, Allowances
Depends on our job description. I have nothing to complain about for the training I got.
Beautiful company, professional, adequately resourced, there are always willing to help. The only problem is the job insecurity, retrenchments make the place unbearable, otherwise a very progressive company.

Time Administrator (Former Employee) – Thabazimbi, Limpopo – 3 November 2017
A typical day for me at work was going to work at 7:30. Having a nice cup off coffee with my friends. I had a good relationship with everyone, people new when there time sheets was with me they would get paid even at the last minute i would help people because i knew how important there money were 2 them.
In all my years working in Anglo American i have learned to really listen and help people.
I had 2 manage all my different types of work load and 2 do it accordingly i always had a system 2 make my job easy so i dint make mistakes....check, check and double check because after all this was people money i was working with.
The culture in my workplace was what made going 2 work nice every day. Everybody had respect for each other and when there was a problem among us it would be talked out in a respective manner.
The hardest part of my job i would say was the impatient employees. And yes i would also calm them down and try 2 explain the situation 2 them. whatever it was that was bothering them.
The part that i enjoyed the mos was when everyone would get there payslips at the end of the month. And then everything was 100% . There were never any pay queries and this made me happy because we worked together as a team...
