Very different work place and there’s a lot to learn

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There’s a lot of career opportunities within this organisation and a great potential for career growth. Although the division I work for RME operates like a contractor with the bulk of the low skilled works in-sourced. There are several other high skilled projects out sourced. In overall someone with a Civil Engineering back ground receives a good hands-on work experience from the organisation

Pros

The organisation currently relyon short term contract appointments for a lot of their work

Cons

There’s a lot of daily driving required for various departments as part of the works

Its a nice company to work for and they offer trainings to their staff

Transnet Engineering is good company that needs good leadership and open minded supervisor. For me the difference is that there is a gap between managers,Supervisors and employees if that gap can be clossed i swear to you guys this company can go far

Cons

It were fun working at Transnet but most of the time hard work you have to put in.

I had a very good experience working for Transnet for example how you can fix a railway and how to change old slippers with new ones so trains run smoothly.

Pros

We didn't have free lunches. The sooner you finish the job the sooner you can go home.

Cons

There were no long hours only working some weekends.

Family culture, fun loving

It really depends on each department. It's a great culture; my issue was the poor management who did not promote growth and did not give equal opportunities. It's a great company with great benefits. They need to focus on the leadership department.

Pros

13th cheque, gain sharing

Cons

No flexible hours
