    Great experience working at Telkom for 14 years

    Various Positions (Former Employee)
    Pretoria, Gauteng (South Africa)

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

    ConsRecent 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 Senior ManagementReduce 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
