The hardest part of the job.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This is a very stable and big company to work for. The hardest part of the job is to get promoted when you proof yourself almost everyday. Long hours make the salary worth it, but only for so long.

No employee development

I worked there for over 10 years. Salary was good however, management isnt interested in developing their employees. While their succession planning is basically none existant, they tend to be very restrictive in mentorship and human development. A company as big as this mustvhave an inhouse development program as their our of work are jot starndard. Their line of reporting is also not structured thoroughly and that alone tends to cause friction between employees and their managers.

Pros

Salary is a tad above market place

Cons

Long hours, no life, overtime worked is not paid though you are required to work overtime work frequently, Managers can be biased towards employees notnto mention misleading.

A well run organisation

I worked long hours to which i received overtime for. I learned the value of time management and how to handle stressful situations. Management was on the ball and i enjoyed being with my co-workers at work and sometimes after hours I made lots of friends because most of them were easy to get along with and very helpful. The hardest part of my job was being away from my family. The most enjoyable part was seeing all part of South Africa and experiencing new places

Pros

friendly staff

Cons

long hours
