Typical state owned company. Badly managed. Resources hard to come by. No disipline. Basically run by unions. Assets not properly maintained. Frustrating if you wish to take pride in your job.
Pros
As a seaman I get to go home to my family everyday
Cons
Due to BEE policy I know there is no chance of advancing up the ranks

the need for technical expertise is there. the are gaps in the primary operation where the presence of technical personnel can improve efficiency and productivity.

there is aging workforce, old generation under-qualified personnel in senior position.


job creation is priority , not profitability.
Pros
job security
Cons
outsourcing available skills and duties

Pros
Team building initiatives

daily safety briefings for office staff.

Management was not always taking opinions from the employees. There was no team work from the subordinates. The resources was poor at the work place. No team work from the other departments.

It a big company but that has not modified it processes with time, and has very good training which is reflective with how quick most faults or problems are sorted when materials are provided.

I love and enjoy working for the organization. Above all, when benchmarking, we are above almost all SOE salary wise. Transnet develops its employees. I started on the ground before I got this far.

Everything was fine besides the money issue because it was never enough to cover my needs e.g transport,toiletries and food. The other problem was the on job training issue there were not enough companies to go for an own job training

What i liked working at Transnet is the fact that you go early morning to work and You also Goes off Duty early.

The hardest part of the job is working wirh a team thats not serious about their job.
