PRODUCTIVE, Friendly workplace

A typical day would be to go through emails and then go to helpdesk to see which library sites that had network problems then we call them to make sure if their problems are fixed if they, we close the call and if not, we visit that site

Lacks succession planning and innovation

The workforce especially in the Western Cape is very old with the mentality of this is how its always been done. You have quite a bit of opportunity to constantly learn something new about the inside workings of government and you become to realize even though there are some amazing projects happening the wheel turns extremely slowly and this can be really frustrating.

Pros

Stability

Cons

No succession planning, innovation, progression. Toxic culture

Productive

Every day is a day to look forward to, with the curiosity and anxiety of meeting new people everyday.I learn a a lot about people management and how to conduct and resolve a certain problem or how to answer enquirers from citizens in a productive and simplest form for them to understand.Hardest part of my job is that i get citizens that don't want to be told what to do and when, but i learnt that the way you approach them counts because it makes them feel free if you are friendly and calm.

Loads of benefits and job security.

A great space for learning and collaboration. Bureaucracy is ultimately what makes the job difficult. The knowledge that your work can make a positive impact on citizens is very rewarding.

Productive and fun workplace

Everyday is a working day productive and also challenging. It requires one to manage time effectively and do tasks delegated on time and stay focus and energetic. The climate is good and it's easy to adapt to the culture of the department. The management is very welcoming and the co-workers are great and very assisting. The most enjoyable part of the job is that it enables one to grow and to develop and exposes you to other departments.

Pros

Free educational tours

Cons

Long hours

Department of the Premier (Dot P)

A typical day at Dot P would be coming in and immediately hearing the laughter and warmth, we were more than co-workers, they were family. I learned that what people say about Government is not always true, that there are hard working individuals trying to make productivity in this country a reality. Management at Dot P was the best I have ever come across. My co-workers like i said was my family, my working life at Department of the Premier was by far the most enjoyable because of the people I had the chance to work with. The hardest part of my day was locating a document when it wasn't on the file it needed to be. The most enjoyabe part was being surrounded by people who really were passionate about what they do and also about each other

Pros

Equality in the workplace

Cons

Long hours
