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

Productive and fun workplace

Shutdown is a fast paced kind of work where you work for long hours. I learned everything happens to the time frame and must be done correctly. We work in teams to be more productive. The hardest part is outcast and incast. The most enjoyable part for me is the plasser machines which makes me anxious the way the operate them.

Pros

Free uniform and lunches

Cons

Long hours

Safe working enviroment

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.

- managing employees is totally different to managing your children, family or friends.

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.

Great company

Best company to work for. Unfortunately it is often used as a stepping stone to most who are not interested in making a positive impact. Being happy in this company means not expecting anything in return, just giving your best, following policy and procedure at all times. If you do this, you will most certainly reap the benefits. I am extremely grateful to be working here, proud to be a Transnet employee.
