Flexible working hours all year round
This was a part time position where I was involved with teaching, mentoring and coaching students. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with demotivated students and dealing with the remnants of the legacy of apartheid in the workplace.
Pros
Flexibility, room for further personal growth and development
Cons
Race politics are deeply entrenched in the system

Rigid . Slow paced transformation...
Great facilities and resources but employee wellness need to be taken seriously. On the issue of benefits and reduction of employee attrition...instead of promising the employees that should they die..you will give their beneficiaries up to 7 times their annual salary.How does that decision assist the employee's financial situation at present? Why can't you give the seventh annual salary to the employee while still alive...Ijoh!

Collaborative and Diverse Workplace
Being a Language and Study Skills tutor gave me invaluable experience and learning opportunities. Even though the work load was heavy and we had to work hard to meet deadlines, the collaborative spirit between all staff members, regardless of rank, made this a very positive experience for me.

progressive and intuitive
Working at Tuks is nice, there is a lot to learn, the experience is not relaxing, rather it keeps you on your toes. A day at work begins in the morning till late afternoon during this hours, you are confronted by clients with different computer problems as well as problems related but outside the scope of work, though the case, every clients problem needs to be tend to with the right solution or recommendation. Everyday offering services to different people of different characters and background, more than solving IT related problems, there is a lot of learning that happens about dealing with different personalities. When the goal is to solve every clients problem the most enjoyable part of the day comes when you have managed to solve a problem and learned something new.

fun workplace, productive
a typical day at work would be to show up at the clinic and counsel students who wanted to test. It has taught me to listen better and pay attention to detail. the workplace was friendly and productive making it easy to do your job. We were managed properly and could raise concerns freely with the management. The hardest part of the job was juggling both the job and my academics. helping people and making connections was the most enjoyable part of the job.

Stressful and competitive
Working here has given me a great advantage of learning many aspects of the industry however because it is a learning institute the feedback from clients can be skewed as most of them are professors and doctors. Not a very trusting environment to work in

Low salary, good for students to get extra cash
A lot of work with promise of a specific salary which was then mostly deducted. Took months to recieve said salary and felt very informal. Was however, a student at the time
