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

I worked with the technical team. I learnt how to plan my work. I got to do planned maintenance. I worked on breakdowns. We searched for new technology to upgrade old machinery to improve production. To become a better technician, one needs to be solution orientated.

Transnet is a great company to work for, we work long hours and shifts but the salary is good. Safety is a priority. Work culture is strict. Chances for advancement not so much especially if you are in my field. You get enough time to rest.

My working experience was good.as I am now strong and strengthen in cooking. I liked Transnet park town because it has a menu rotation. But I didn't enjoy much at reef hotel because I didn't find much of a challenge, There's no manu rotation,is one and the same Menu everyday. I am now looking forward to gain more experience and a challenge so tht I will grow more in cooking industry

In my presence within Transnet RME, I worked with a variety of people giving them my services which they still want if my contract was ongoing. Should there be any opportunities available, I'd have been honoured to apply for such. The salary was good, people amazing, my Chief Engineer being the best person to work under.
Pros
Free travel and allowances
Cons
Working as PA and Admin Assistant respectively.
