Going backwards
The family spirit is gone.You have become a number and there is anytime somebody than can replace you. Making money is king and not doing business that will bring in the money. Short term focus.
Pros
Brandname
Cons
Executive vision and decition making.

Worst company ever to work for
Barloworld equipment looks good from the outside get inside you will regret people who get paid are the ones sitting in the office field workers are the least paid and they are an undermining company to get a position it depends on who you know you can spend 20 years on the same position without them even thinking to give you a promotion through experience and knowledge, they can take
your benefits they did it to so many employees especially the department that is least educated about labor laws they turn to treat them bad with no regard to your a

Job Culture
Highly Pressurised Environment
I cannot say much about the BWE SAP IT Applications department. It provided me with a platform to learn much but the environment was more like working in a blast furnace. Results were produced. The environment is such that you work on a business process that needs a 1-week solution in 2 hours.

The system is highly customised, and when there is a break, the management commands the consultants to fix it the same day even if it needs more time for development and testing, and the quick solution will only be focussing on the broken part of the system and not wholistic.

The only time we would enjoy was when the managers were absent from work.


This workplace taught me to be independent, know all and tough.
Pros
learn to be independent and responsible
Cons
Very Long hours, longer than 16 hours

Depressing to work for
I wouldn't call my relatives to come an work here. Some managers do not approve overtime for office employees. Managers do not respect employees by listening to them. No room for improvements for employees of colour.
Pros
Free food for overtime
Cons
Allowances are not fixed for shift workers

Job Culture
Career growth and development
My career aspirations are to find a stimulating and challenging position which builds on my university skills and knowledge, as well as professional experience. I am an ambitious individual who wants to learn and develop under the guidance of those who are at the top of their field and then use those skills to become an expert myself. That will include Management Accounting were I will be concerned with the provisions and use of accounting information within the organisations, to provide the basis to make informed business decisions allowing me to be better in my control function.

So being at Barloworld Equipment has helped me achieve the above mentioned on daily basis. The culture is one of team work, integrity and also development of individuals. Multiple project with high deliverables sometimes come as a challenge but because of team work, one can be sure to deliver in time.

Unfair and no integrity
Management have no authority and the workplace is ruled by HR. Good learning environment and knowledge gain. No room for growth as you are only a number.

hard work and personal efforts always recognised!
Pressure filled day complicated by unwilling subordinates and unrelenting management pressure to achieve good results. The most difficult task is achieving results on schedule whilst maintaining prescribed safety standards.
Releasing a machine on time despite above challenges!
Pros
company vehicle
Cons
weekend working

A good company to work for if you want personal and career growth
depending on the section of the comp you work you have safety talks and job briefings.
barlows equipment had a lot to offer and you attend two annual courses.

Management always stand for there workers
Team building is the name of the game.
the hardest part is to finish work within deadlines when parts isnt available.

the best part of the job is getting job satisfaction and customer satisfaction.
Pros
performance achievements recognition, intensive bonus
Cons
long hours traveling

Pruductive work in my own understanding i would say, being positive, energetic and always on time leads to fun work and feeling more comfortable.
1 ) A typical day at work for me it is an everday job that you do without any pressure.

2 ) What ive learned from my work is not to mix business with pleasure and not to feel more comfprtable but to focus on whats important.


3) Management is there to support us and make sure we understand our roles in the compmany and as for my co-workers they are people who need to give a hand where help is needed and also make feel at home.

4) The hardest part of the job for me is having to deal with people who want to make my owm work hard for me or customers who doesnt want to comply to our work procedures.


5) What i enjoy about my work is haaving to work with people who are passionate and who make my work easy for me by assisting if help is needed.
