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

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

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

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

Excellent company to work for.

People don't leave a company, they leave management. Uncertainty about job as CEO of company decides over night not to give employees no increase for years.

Pros

Payed for overtime

Cons

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