Room for growth

Good environment to work, nice benefits and alot of room for growth. I enjoyed the work space and overall enjoyed waking up in the morning to go to work. Managers are okay, besides the favouritism and pressure. Work load can become a little stressful so there were opportunities for paid overtime on weekends.

Pros

Good environment, compensation and paid overtime

Cons

Favouritism, Work pressure, lack of communication from management, unprofessional advancements

Depending on the bussiness unit you work for

Always professional and dedicated collueges supporting each other in team work. I was fortunate to have different weekly shifts which gave me opportunities in working with overseas colluegues as well. It was inspiring working on an international platform.

Pros

Canteen for lunch

Cons

Long shift hours

Excellent working experience for twelve years.

Telkom require people with strategic thinking ability. People that can take responsibility and who strive to add value and make a difference. People that continuously strive to make things better, with the focus on process improvements and to reduce costs. People that continuously research what the world telecommunication trends are, in order to create a better working environment.

Pros

Access to the latest technology.

Cons

Long hours.

Very dry and unpleasant work Experience

Working at Telkom made me realize, That you have to make any situation the best. Because the people are the worst types you get. Two faced and just a bunch of spineless people who suck up to Management to bring others down. So if you get a job there. Stick to yourself and remember, no one is your friend. They will stab you in the back to get ahead.

Pros

The pay was good

Cons

Management and people are the worst

Mall hours

Friendly environment. Busy work schedule

My Telkom working years were very fun. It was a very friendly environment it helped since we spent most of our time there. Hours were not too long since overtime was not compulsary. If it was not the Retreachment, I would still be working for that company. Salary was satisfactory and Benefits were very good.

Pros

Relaxed and friendly environment

Cons

No room for growth

It used to be a great place to work for but the greed of management made it an effort to get yourself ti go to work.

Keep to yourself and keep management happy. Do not trust anyone as they will use you to get themselves promoted. Keep a record of everything you do and don't share your personal life with colleagues.

Pros

None

Cons

Your not appreciated, just a number.

Working hours. When people leave, you do their work with out compensation. No annual increase
