Great quality of Work but stressful culture

A very good place to gain experience but the the culture at Puma is very poor and management is not doing anything to change this. No relationships everyone is just working and minding their own work.


Free drinks and fruits.


Long hours Poor management Men dominated

Had potential of being a great employer

It had no scheduling system, it was done manually on Excel The company was fairly new so finding its feet Salary adjustment from temporary to fulltime employment was a major source of discontentment

Working on your own in a foreign country was very challenging, as I worked for the Main contractor Pioneer Mechanical Contractors

Was to ensure the foreign nationals understood very clearly he activities that were to be done for the day. I had to learn to adapt to other cultures as I had Chinese and a Congolese workforce. I learned to be a good listener and patience and a cool head was required, but I managed to progress the work safely and without any major incidents. I got great satisfaction in seeing the project completion of the work packs.


I got to meet a lot of people and made new friends and contacts


The work was very intense as the head office was in Cape Town, so I worked with a Congolese and Puma representative.

High pressured environment

My experience at Puma has been a challenging one as it was a new job function without any training. I have adapted and made a success of my job. The people culture is much to be desired as everyone is silo driven and shy away from responsibilty

Productive, fun and very challenging workplace

Puma Energy is a very interesting company to work for, a typical day at Puma would be to be focused, handle lots of pressure, its too demanding so you need to always be ahead of schedule and know why you are there. You must be a driven person and energetic and be able to handle stress. Puma taught me how to work individually, how to work under pressure and handle stress. also taught me how to react to situations and how to handle /deal or cope with different races/backgrounds and different cultures. Management was very interesting, strict and very demanding but thats how one achieve growth. I had very amazing co-workers and my very profesional but friendly Financila Manager. The hardest part of the job, i found the job very interesting and a bit challenging because it felt like month end every week and its because of that, that i am able to say that i handle pressure and stress very well and i believe i have grown as an individual and will be able to take on any challenge that i might or will come across. i enjoyed every part of my work including the challenges that came with it.


free refreshments daily and staff lunch every month.


Long hours.

A good highly pressured and challenging environment. A very focused strategy for the regional penetration. My experience with Puma was that they are very good with strategy implementation. An organisation I would happily embrace any time.
