Escom/Evkom was far more better managed especially financially. High amounts paid for electricity were immeduately invested which is not happening any more and that is naturally a lost of income from interest received
Pros
Still one of the better Gov / Parastatel to work for
Cons
Serious lack of vision about consequences of wrong or bad desisions taken

If I could get a chance to work for Eskom again I would grab it with both hands. But I would ask for an adjustment with salary . Eskom is a good working environment, safety and stressless.

Eskom is a good company to work for but the sad part about being a survey technician is the limited growth. You can only be a supervisor that's it. There is no other position to grow further.
Pros
Not really
Cons
Limited skill

The day began with morning meetings to review previous day tasks. I learned effective communication and reporting on time. Team work is recommended at all times to achieve favorable results In general the workplace is incredible. I enjoyed group activity as one would have opportunity to solve queries rising. Management is good.

Training and awareness campaigns

Long distance driving and long hours

My experience at Eskom was awesome, I joined the company as an assistant management accountant and I was mentored by well experienced management accountants to learn and grow until I eventually became a project accountant.

The lab results of the power plant cycle chemistry indicated that the pH of all the samples of the circuit was acidic, regardless of the ammonium hydroxide that was being dosed. The sulphates levels were high throughout the circuit, but chlorides were on acceptable level. It was suspected that the condensate polisher resins entered the feed and boiler systems, thermal degrade and leaches sulphates and lower the pH. I was difficult to convince management to shutdown the plant for resins strainer inspection, however a buy in was achieved after highlighting the consequences of running under those conditions and reference to the chemistry governance document. The machine was shut down. There was a good cooperation from production and maintenance department with regards to planning and execution of the inspection and repairs of the resin trap strainer. Since this was the first incident I have been exposed to, I have learnt that it is crucial to incorporate resin strainers inspections during opportunity maintenance.

Eskom has been a great part of my journey, my very first job was with them and I have been happy ever since. However it is time to venture into other companies and hopefully other work experiences (Sales).
