Productive and fun company with lots of competition

Telkom is a company that everyone would wish to work for. The only disadvantage is the job security because it has many competitors it's hard for them to keep all the jobs safe.But the overall is perfect with nice benefits as well

Productive, problem solving, independence, team work, collaboration, customer care, target driven, selling and rewards

Excellent company to work for. Offers the Best employee benefits and rewards. You know what your responsibilities and targets are from day one. Depending on the position you have applied for, you will get in-house training by either attending an in-house course from the Telkom College or by shadowing someone in your department. Do now fear that when you get employed you won't know how to do the job. Be prepared to collaborate with your team and other divisions either on daily or weekly. Be willing to be a productive and responsible member of team Telkom. No matter what position you're in, the following skills will improve - team work, problem solving, becoming target driven, being able to work independently and more.The company rewards great perfomance on quarterly with monetary incentives and annually by sharing profits with its employees.

Very old school in their way of thinking. Not very progressive. Long hours. The department i worked in (underground cables) provided lots of challenges, like working in confined spaces and heights

Stressful and unfair treatment from management

Expect anything from management, you could be implicated in false accusations just to make a way to get rid of you. I will never recommend Telkom to family and friends or anyone for that matter.

Pros

Cell phone package

Cons

Long hours of working

Highly stressful environment

Irate customers daily and a lack of management support from both stores ive worked for. Managers are quick to delegate but when there is a serious issue they refuse to face the customer. Customers will often go months without issues being resolved and they will take it out on you in store.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

Lack of support, highly stressful

Management don't have forward thinking. Only care about performance bonuses for non performance.

No training for staff in ever changing technology, instead only supervisors and management and expect junior staff to automatically apply without formal training

Pros

Corruption is rife, as most of top management are having sub companies, milking Telkom to their advantage

Cons

Screen all supervisors and management

Great place to learn and grow your career. They encourage continuity by ensuring that the staff is equipped with the necessary skills to accomplish the job at hand.

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
