    It provides security as far as a monthly salary, pension and medical aid goes.
    In general the working staff is pleasant and understanding.
    Options for studying exists.

    No career advancement opportunities for white males.
    Your abilities does not get taken into consideration when applying for positions to advance yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are driven by unions and BEE. It does not matter if you are suited as the best candidate for the job, you don't have any chance as a white male.
