The company is a good company to work, however management was very "stiff". Employees should work in a pleasant working environment yet supervisors and managers think the company is theirs and they can change rules when and if it suits them.

HR Specialist (Current Employee) - Cape Town, Western Cape
1. Each day cannot be fully planned. Especially within the fishing space. Vessels and payment of the crew is dictated by the vessels coming in with full loads. This makes it exciting. The trick is to set your team up based on the strengths to drive this process, 2. Learnt a great deal about SAP Authorisations and the setting up of the rules with the HR and Payroll Space. More that I have learnt at other implementations. 3. The management could be a little more decisive as some decisions take to long to make and this sometimes compromises the objectives that need to be achieved. Knowing this has allowed one to make an alternative plan until permanent resolution is found 4. The culture varies from division to division. The attrition rate is very low therefore you do not have new blood coming into the organisation which does allow for challenges in that the mindset of long standing employees does not want to change with the strategy of change that the business is driving. 5. The hardest part is the historical reconciliations and fixes that need to be done. This relates to a legacy system and audit trails etc where not at the new standard that has been set. So it takes a little longer to reach the objectives. However the expectations are manageable. 6. The relationships built, and how bad views of the payroll dept have now started to be turned around into strong working relationships through the communication and transparency process.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Long time spent in traffic

Treasury Manager (Former Employee) - Cape Town, Western Caoe
Being in treasury and very dependant on market movement, one day is very different from the other, i.e. never boring. I loved the diversity of every day, the pressures that go with this. The interaction with various staff members, from executives to staff members. I grew immensely during the time at Oceana as a manager and amazed at what I achieved in the years, from growing a treasury department from nothing to a full fletch treasury department.
Pros
Performance bonus
Cons
Long hours
