I received a formal substantial training with regards to the work environment. I was trained how to phrase professional emails, what intonation to use when when make a professional phone call and how to host big companies at Wits. I learned some of the things they couldn't teach me on my own as an innovative student. To mention one I learned InDesign and published a newsletter
Pros
Get to learn whiles still a student, and make extra income
Cons
Have to sometimes balance hard between work and school

Great place to work. Good work/life balance. Racism still an ever present issue. Pays well but there is a glass ceiling. Working at the place is very satisfying if you enjoy research and lecturing.
Pros
Pay.
Cons
Racism

Management will place the incorrect individuals in positions and wonder why projects fail. They will then over pay others and wonder why there is resentment.

A typical day involves data capturing and data collection, teaching as well as related research. I learn about consumer behaviour and the best ways to be a successful digital marketer. The workplace culture is conducive for working and growing.

Pros
Flexible work hours and ability to work from home
Cons
Stressful and pressured work conditions

The culture at Wits is very professional and effecient. They hire the best staff who are from diverse parts of the world. The salary is not so good. However, the salary is negotiable. The culture is very open and they are willing to work with each other.
