    I worked at Barloworld full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love structure and this company has it, which is essential in the accounts departments. I was trained well and knew what to do and when to have it done. I was given support in difficult situations. I left the company in 2009 in good spirits and was asked to re-join in 2013. I loved working there again, this time even better prepared for the way they do things and I left because I relocated to the USA.

    Cons

    The company constantly changes direction and doesn't communicate it to the workers. You find out after the fact and have to adjust immediately.

    Pros

    The company pays in line with what the industry offers.
    The overall benefits and perks are good.
    Management makes an effort to communication with all levels of staff

    Cons

    Upper management does not always act in a consistently.
    There is little opportunity to move within the group and you can get stuck in a position for many years.

    Pros

    Management was willing to listen to your advise on ways things could be changed to better the department and turn around time.

    Cons

    To much play time allowed for some employees. Some took smoke breaks every hour for 10-15 minutes. Play time on personal cell phone, talking, texting, and facebooking all thru the day.

    Advice to Management

    Company has removed business from USA.

    Pros

    listed company, good benefits, fair pay

    I get the feeling you have to leave the co if you want a 30% increase in salary

    cut back on the soft support stuff. The people making the money are the ones in the workshops not in the offices
