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.

You are overworked and underpaid, job advancement is very little. Corruption is the order of the day, jobs for pals is rampant. Academic excellence and hard work is overlooked over "yes man".

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

At BMW a typical day is well structured as they have the best processes and systems to assist any associate do their daily work. The company always brings to the market latest technology that is environmentally friendly. Management always do a one on one monthly reviews with their associates to help them achieve their objectives. BMW also invest a lot of time to assist dealers with their different customer challenges through different positions they have in the after-sales departments from marketing, to logistics and technical departments. Management also do quarterly reviews with all associates on what happened on the previous quarter and what to expect on the new quarter, what new products to expect and what is required from everyone.

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,

An employee has good benefits, I love the product, but job security and caring is not seen by senior management to keep a loyal and hard working employee. I feel the company is losing the good employees.

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

I go early to work before the time just to get comfortable with my work and leave after 5 clock to help with last minute work that co-workers bring to me, My relationship with my co-workers is good and never had any conflict, I've learnt a lot about accounting, financing etc. and I enjoy assisting the co-workers when they are in need of information and i do it with friendliness, the most challenging part of my job is when the queries arise but I love a challenge.
Pros
Excellent to learn in an environment where management helps you through your faults
Cons
No over-time is paid
