The company is undergoing change in it's management systems however, the culture of patronage is still very entrenched. Without any informal personal comnections, you wont grow. Production staff usually remains in their roles for over 10 years. There still remains a lot of uneducated people with lots of power.
Pros
Fair salary, great brand
Cons
No growth, highly political, food subsidy discontinued, unskilled leadership in production, High nepotism.

In my experience, team happiness spurs productivity and by making your work environment a ‘happy place’, you can take care of your team and encourage them to get more done.

A typical day at BMW you wake up without knowing what to expect. This because while sleeping production is taking place and new defects arise. It was very challenging and demanding. It required one to be at the tip of their toe all times. BMW firmly apply continous improvement. It a work place of culture and heritage. The most enjoyable part had to be adapting to their culture.

Typical Day Dealing with various departments within the various dealerships to ensure optimal customer service and target achievement. Managing the F & I departments to ensure compliance within the legal requirements for that field and target achievement Motivating and coaching deepartment managers. Travel between dealerships in Gauteng and Free State What I learned is that staff are the biggest asset and managers are not always great leaders. Top performers are usually promoted to management positions without necessary training. Workplace culture, is directly affected by the "leadership" of the business. The hardest part of the job was getting managers and leaders to see where they go wrong, The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing dealerships and departments thrive and win national awards
Pros
Company Car/Commission
Cons
None

BMW is a beautiful company to work for and a well know brand working for bmw was a dream come true, but the workplace culture still have a lot of racism and growing as a black person was quite a challenge, in the the absence of the challenge it is a beautiful company, management needed to do a lot of courses specifically management courses it is bad for a wonderful company to loose wonderful skills given by people due to lack of understanding of people and how to treat people,

My approach to work is to understand the production goals, build proper support for production and its associates. Undertake a SWOT analysis for the maintenance regime. Plan and implement on SWOT out come in terms of staff compliment, inventory, staff feedback,operator feedback, acquire utilisation reports for staff, identify personal development requirements, engage other functions to compliment on plan. On daily basis, check on targets and daily reports, engage parties for compliment and or coaching,ensure safety is maintained, manage calls, complains. Identify critical path and manage. Create a culture of responsibility. Listen to everyone and involve everyone..The hardest part of the job is to convince and change pre-existing culture if it is counter-productive. Achieving good results as a team
Pros
gym, subsidised meals

Typical day at work is walking the extra mile. Interacting with Management / employees both internal and external as well as shop stewards. I have learned a lot about different cultures as well as people's behavior. The hardest part of my job was being affected by other employees delaying my output. The most enjoyable part of my job was not working on a weekend unless I did it to improve my own function
Pros
Fleet Vehicle / Canteen Services
Cons
Shop Stewards being extremely demanding
