It is safe to work in the office and the environment is good.

During November there is a thirteenth cheque paid to each employee.Eskom also have merit system where each employee sit together with his/her supervisor to discuss about his performance during the last previous twelve months. If his/her performance was very good he will be paid a lot of money on July in that year.

Pros

There is one hour lunch everyday.Employees are allowed to work eight hours per day .

Cons

The company is very strict about safety rules; theft, fighting and other misconducts are strictly prohibited.

Productive and Fun workplace

It is a highly technical environment with a lot of skilled personnel. Because the company was not doing well financially it cut down on salary increases, bonuses and other allowances. If you want to advance your skills in the electrical engineering field, Eskom is the company to work for.

Pros

Good personal and professional development . Eskom invests in the upskilling of their staff.

Cons

No salary increases and bonuses. Cut down on many allowances.

Too start and end Your Career

As an intern/person looking for experience or finishing off your working career Eskom is really good, their training, attention development of staff knowledge and benefits are great.If you do not fit in the boxes they set out you will die slowly, to succeed is not easy if you do not fit the profile. Management can be rather poor, but if you want safety and comfort that is great.

Pros

benefits package, safe environment, world class training

Cons

long hours, work/home in balance, media and personal critique every time you step outside your door
