I thorougly enjoy working for this company. The job security is very good and the benefits are excellent. I've worked with many people of various backgrounds and learnt alot from them. I love working in the airline industry, it's very exciting enviroment. There is not much room for growth if you are not based at head office.
Pros
Flying Benefits
Cons
Little room for growth

Overall SAA is a fantastic company to work for. There is lack of succession planning and gender transformation in some areas. This leads to de-motivation of top performers. Benefits and salary are not market related for my field and opportunity to change this is absent. Silo mentality between head offices and outstations leading to ineffective communication and information sharing at times. Undergoing the current rationalisation process is bound to help improve some of the areas. Lovely industry and the people are great and definitely exciting, but remaining at SAA in Durban or Johannesburg in my field does not offer growth.
Pros
Amazing people
Cons
silos

It is a great company to work for. Salary not what it should be, but the benefits are fine. I had no problem working at the company at all or with any co-worker. I have learned a lot about accounting in 32 years. The hardest part of the job was at year end.
Pros
Free airline tickets
Cons
Not to long hours per day.

I consult with HR Managers, General Managers and Employment Equity Committees. Develop EE Plan and submit to Top management. Do audits, analyse and interprete data and write reports for EXCO. I learned to write policies, develop strategy and project planning. Generally Management style varies from one business unit to another within company values. The hardest part of the job is brought by lack of speed in decision making. The most enjoyable part of the job is effecting change in business.
Pros
Sense of security and flying benefits
Cons
untimely stakeholder requirements

I love interaction with fello employees at the company, the hardest part would be rudeness of some managers especially when they have to be reminded by a junior employee that precedure was not followed and they need to do this and that moving forward. we have a very nice manager,very democratic but ends up been disobeyed by most senior co-workers because they know they can get away with it. the team work is not so good as others believe that they are favoured as much as others this company gave a platform to learn about aviation and travel medicine and also how executive medicals are conducted,
Pros
there are lots of benefits
Cons
hours are flexible
