Training is something lacking, it's available but not orginized timeiously and some people appointed as managers raise an eyebrow. Managers are appointed then have to be trained in that position??????Discipline is also a factor that needs looking into, to many loop hole's and employees get away with murder.
Pros
Can't think of any at this stage
Cons
Bad discipline hearings, inexperienced chair people.

Am in the finance department and gosh the worst department you can be in. and the worse place is to be micro managed . You are always times on your every move and there is no room for growth because you are reminded every 5mins that you are support. A lot of focus is on the engineering side as for the rest, they could not be bothered by anything.

Working 08.00 to 16.30, however work extended hours due to work demands. Typical day includes : meetings, customer visits and engagements, emails, attending to customer issues, analyzing performance, planning and executing. I've learnt to: get things done; understand diversity; engage; teamwork; exceeding performance; issue resolution; understanding and managing organizational politics; emotional intelligence, just to name a few. The company has a tall management structure throughout the organization. The environment has enabled one to encompass situational and inclusive leadership. Challenges typical include: budgetary constraints to execute mammoth task; red tape (stringent and tedious processes); ecomonic and political factors affecting company performance; staff constraints etc.. The most rewarding aspects include: opportunities for academic advancements; exceeding performance targets; positive customer experience; customer satisfaction; volume & revenue growth; reward & recognition; positive stakeholder feedback, travelling and meeting people, continuous learning of the customers business.
Pros
Subsidiesed meals and transport; gym and clinic facilities onsite, annual bonus, 13th cheque; Employee wellness programmes

Transnet is one of the biggest company in South Africa. For me to get an opportunity to work for such an incredible company is something I will always treasure. I learned how to work as team while you are under pressure to complete a given task

This is a very nice company to work for. I have learned everything about train movements and systems used to move them. The management takes safety of workers seriously. Respecting one another as workers is encouraged in this company, irrespective of ones age and position. The hardest part of signalling is to make sure of everything you do as its one of the most critical jobs you will find and that you have to work in all weather conditions as train movements depend on it. Signalling is enjoyable because you always learn as signalling changes from time to time.
Pros
Flexible weekly hours
Cons
Working over holidays.

There is resistance to change and business affected by level of corruptions and miss-management of funds. Level of trust is very low and most of the staff are not semi-skilled labour or no qualification at all.
