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.

Always under pressure because of the construction, learned to be patient with the clients who needs to be retracted information on the system whereas they can do it themselves. hardest part is to count how many documents you loaded on the system a list where as the system keeps crushing but when you reached the target you with be very excited.
Pros

Cons
long hours during overtime

Eskom still has market related salaries, great and competitive benefits. It is very difficult for other companies to top Eskom salary and benefits even if the post is higher than that occupied at Eskom.

A typical day at work is fun though hectic. What I have learned it that if you are going to do something always do it right the first time and take responsibility and accountability for it. I have worked with excellent Managers who always believed in me always tried to encourage a relaxed and funny workplace culture. The hardest part of the job is having to get Project Managers to explain their variances. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the project through the life cycle and handing it over to the client/sponsor.
Pros
Flexi-time, meals, other benefits
Cons
Sometimes not getting the recognition

Full of activities that demands ones complete attention. Open learning environment for a self driven individual. Culture is that of a safe working environment. the hardest part is that of silo mentality when it comes to team work.
Pros

Eskom as we all know is in a financial constraint.

We have to much employees who are not qualified to do the work they are doing. Rather appoint a specialist who can do 10 activities that 10 employees who only do 1.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
No growth potential

this is the good company work for only those certain individually that need to be corrected and checked frequently in performing their duties that they assigned for this has to start from management to the ground level . And those who are i the position they must not undermine those who are managing or reporting to them as their seniors, this has to be taken into consideration to the old people who were with company for such a longtime.

company benefits its good company to work for
Pros
free breakfast and lunch and shift allowance
Cons
normal hours and bonus
