Productivity influenced by political interference

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Eskom was a good company to work for with great benefits until it was stricken by state capture corruption. Some benefits were taken away and some remained with old employees and no longer applied to new recruits. The performance bonus and annual increase was taken away from all managerial positions (MPS band) since 2017/18 while lower positions (bargaining) benefits and annual salary increases continues through negotiations by union. This impacted bad on MPS employees because inflation rates continue annually and affects all citizens. This saw most skilled employees leaving Eskom for greener pastures, which also added to decrease in productivity due to loss of skills within the company.

Pros

Service leave over and above normal Labour Law leave, but only after 10 years of service

Cons

Long hours working from home without compensation for managerial positions (MPS band)

Very great company to work for.

I love Eskom, the culture is excellent. The women empowerment policies are excellent and in place. Chances of growth is also top notch. I can’t really complain. The only problem is that Eskom is a government business, so it get’s overwhelming when there is bad reviews, the public gets involved too.

Pros

Excellent benefits

Cons

Public interest

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

The experience was good.. even though I wasn't happy with the salary

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.
