Professional plant with the expected ups and downsGood opportunities to travel internationally within the group.Benefits like vehicle and medical also make the package more attractive.
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.
Fair salary, great brand
No growth, highly political, food subsidy discontinued, unskilled leadership in production, High nepotism.
Very challenging and with high expectations. Work hard but excellent company with excellent remuneration and benefits. The stress levels is high as allot is expected from one, however the company looks after you very well.
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.
A good place to work and advance one's career. Encouraged to expand one's knowledge and exposure, and encouraged self fulfillment. Employees encouraged to adopt a entrepreneurial approach to business and to take responsibility for actions taken.
Had to resign as a result of a personal tragedy in my life when my wife unexpectadly passed on. I was responsible for the overall shift security in terms of SLA compliance from service providers which included operational as well as CCTV security.
Continious training and developing best practises
Dynamic yet very challenging work environment in some areas lacking support and direction. Culture i in OHS lack requiring OHS members to perform duties legally assoigned to management. Appreciates the fact that development and training is important for growth but is restricted to manufacturing environmet.
3 x Bonusses per year, Fuel Allowances, Free Medical Aid
The Financial Services division is South Africa is a racist environment. The company staff is extremely old school, with no room for innovative ideas. There is a constant battle to stay ahead, and there is no work/life balance.
