Stressful and unstructured

rude managers and no skills to manage people. All they wanted was sales, forced to sing, pray and clap your hands. Being punished and embarrassed Infront of others. harassment was also a factor. No room for growth. The culture is not great and you do not really have a knock off time. Always being threatend to be fired. The environment was very bad. Working there for me was not conducive.

Pros

Work Functions, you develop a tough skin for sales

Cons

No respect, no knock off time, stressful

Productive

I learned a considerable amount about systems integration and process automation. Some managers encourage career development. Generally salaries are below market rate.

Culture has changed

Unfortunately the company has gone through some serious culture shifts in the last couple of years, it also received bad publicity lately with a CEO being fired. This was a great company to work for and won the Employer of the Year award in 2016 and 2017, unfortunately the culture shift under new management has brought about huge stress levels and job uncertainty.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

No promotional opportunities.

None. A slave driver

None that is worthy to give. The management are a bunch of conspiratorial capitalist extortionists that are there to see for themselves only. There is no system in place to safeguard the employees interests as the management is so WHITE that they can still practice APARTHEID values and get away with it.

Pros

None.

Cons

Slave driven. And if the bosses need to cover themselves. They just fire u

Very challenging and a lot of pressure. Needs you to constantly be ready to work and meet deadlines. You need to know what you want as a person but most importantly, enjoy the sales environment .

Pros

Compensation

Cons

unpredictable hours
