    Pros

    Established telecoms service provider in South Africa and Africa as a whole. Great corporate culture and career development opportunities. Telkom Mobile present growth opportunities

    Cons

    Recent negative media coverage regarding uncompetitive behavior. As a massive organization, change initiatives take time to implement. Enhanced turn around strategies should urgently be implemented to ensure sustainability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce management structure (top heavy). Top management should strive to engage more with employees at the bottom levels in order to stay in touch and encourage enhanced performance.
