Pros: wonderful lunch room, beautiful surroundings, good pay and benefits
Cons: high stress, issues with management who were stressed, few breaks if any.
A typical day at FLSmidth started with opening the front office, turning on machines and preparing for the flood of calls and visitors. I would be swamped with phone calls and visitors from 8am till 4:30pm. Both calls and visitors would come in waves through-out the day.
My co-workers were wonderful to work with. the Management was often over-worked and out of reach unless they needed to communicate with you.
The hardest part of my job was getting people to relieve me at the front desk. It was a high pressure position and most admins were less then excited about helping out there.
The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting people from all over the world and learning about their cultures. It was fascinating and I loved the people that I met.
