In my opinion, people should be rotated within the company, periodically, say after every five years, especially those that are in a technical environment. This will enhance multiskilling of the workforce.
Pros
As an Ops. Manger in CNFO, you need to be continually for escalations after hours.
Cons
No compensation for Ops Managers, to attend to escalations after working hours

Salary scale depends on where you are, but they're salaries are reasonably good. IT and engineering courses stand you a good chance earning a reasonable decent salary

Telkom never paid us as we expected. We put a lot of work and transport money was not enough.we where selling starter packs and airtime as vendors we were paid in commissions.it was a stressful job because you had to convince people to buy what you are selling and your salary was based on that.

I worked there for 20 years doing everything from basic technician work to programming. I got a salary at the lowest end of the scale and had to perform high level support functions. I studied through Telkom with the promise of a better job and was told that I would not be able to get it.

It was nice working for Telkom up until they moved the staff to work under agency ,salaries dropped and no benefits. Management need to be skilled not to employ management by their race.

It's a stressful target based environment. Management and staffing is fairly good as well as commission and incentives. Only bad thing is the targets.

It was fast paced and stressful. Fresh out of school I was never ready for the pressure. I didn't appreciate the negative comments I received from my manager, it was personally attacking me and malicious. She advised me to go into beauty instead.
Pros
The salary was good bad clients gave me positive feedback
Cons
The manager I worked under.

The culture of the company changes I believe anyone can adapt to the changes in all levels. The hardest part of the job is when once had to deal with the difficult customer. Enjoyable part of the job is when I learn something new
Pros
Time off, when one has worked long hours
Cons
There are times when work is demanding long hours

The company opened doors for me to see other broadcast companies. The line of work gave me an understanding of what TV broadcasting involved. The courses were relavant to the work I did. The company offered good benefits and had good policies for employees.
