I have been working at Sasol full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

This company is constantly renewing itself; change is frequent and the people learn to adapt. Bold decision-making, without forgetting its history and where it came from. Has a bright future.

Cons

The biggest con is that this company does not listen / respond / take cognisance of internal suggestions for improvement, thus the true value of their human capital is sometimes lost.

Advice to Management

Institute an internal suggestion-line (something similar to the ethics line perhaps?) with a formal template for proposals. You will find a lot of cost-saving/ optimisation ideas internally, if you were only open to listening.

    Started off very positive some 10 years ago but I resigned as the environment became very negative.

    I worked at Sasol full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They pay very well, there are opportunities to move around within the company, they take your development seriously.

    Cons

    Unfortunately affirmative action is a huge problem for white employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain your good people as you are losing many of them and will regret this later. I just do not see how you are going to become truly global with the current quality of work force. You need to retain talent and also attract global talent. You promote people too easily. Your recruitment processes compare badly to that of your competitors.
