Toxic Work Environment

Mogale City has very unfair and biased management. You are only favoured if you are a family member to someone in management or HR. They commit gross unfair labour practices and get away with it all the time. Management treat hard working, highly qualified staff badly and continuously promote people who have nothing to offer. The environment is toxic, management is unapproachable and on a power trip with god complexes. I would never recommend working here to anyone as it crushed my soul and I feel drained emotionally and physically.

Pros

Close to home

Cons

Terrible management

Cons

working space was crowded

Stable Workplace

I attend to meetings ranging from Audit, Risk, Research, Strategic Planning to Compliance. We develop and compile baseline studies, strategies and policies and working with service providers regarding projects that are to be implemented. I'm in a middle management position and report directly to the Executive Manager. The hardest past of my job is attending to requests from the public and stakeholders within a short space of time. The work culture is good and its more on one being productive and active in what they do. I have learned a lot since I commenced my duties at Mogale City and I would like to learn more in other workplace environment. The most enjoyable part of my job is that everything is planned and working with stakeholders within the local and provincial sphere of government to explore other opportunities and avenues.

Pros

Stakeholder Engagements

Cons

Long Hours

Learning curve and exposure.

My typical day at work includes executing day to day HR duties,from recruitment & selection to HR administration. I have learnt that professionalism at workplace is very key. I also learnt that being a team player is important as it makes day to day execution of duties very simple. Punctuality and planning is also one of the qualities I have come to realize as fundamental. Ability to take instructions and being able meet deadlines while keeping your composure under pressure is also key. What I enjoy most about working for MCLM is the positive workplace environment and the friendly employees that are willing to assist at all times. I am an intern at MCLM ,so I rotate and change departments every two or three months and the hardest part is when I leave a department in which I had already gotten used to the culture and the people.The management of MCLM is organized, communication is easily cascaded across all levels of management efficiently so. We have three level of management and they are all functioning like a well oiled machine.

Pros

Free tickets for events.

Cons

Short Lunches

Politically biased organisation

There is no growth for internal employees. Higher positions are filled by political deployees who then have to be trained by experienced staff. The Senior Manager's contracts are 5 yearly, at times management consider internal staff for promotion and some don't.

Pros

Time off when you have worked long hours.

Cons

Productive place to work in but with political interference

I was able to formulate new methodologies and approaches around Project Management and the Project Management Office as well as implement the ERP Project without much red tape and restrictions. Had challenges that I enjoyed tackling and resolving. However the institution is not open to change and it takes time to implement new initiatives. At times politics interfere in ones execution of work as Mogale City is a Local Municipality.

Pros

Allows initiative thinking

Cons

Not receptive to change
