The company was on a infancy stage with SAP system, with my knowledge of SAP, I was able to take the company to the next level, I enjoyed working at SABC with different people and different dynamics, I was able to assist the company when it was cash scraped by implementing some changes which led the company to the stable phase, I can go back to this company should the opportunity arise
Pros
Very harmonious place to work
Cons
Retrenchments

A typical day started at 07:30 and ended at 16:00. During the week we would have a team meeting on Monday to catch up and discuss work for the week. During these meetings we would have coaching opportunities and present a specific topic relation to your work. I've learned quite a lot about Commodity Management and Contract Management. I also had the opportunity to travel a lot. We were a close knit family that cared about every team member's well being.

Working time is very respectable as time management. Time management and planning for the day is critical. Implementation of the leadership skills and team building. Ensure organizing and checking whether your plan was implementable or not, and if not need be checking back of what went wrong and what can i do to ensure that the same mistake does not repeat themselves.
Pros
family day
Cons
long hours
