    I worked at Telkom SA full-time

    Pros

    Great company with great people. Lots to do and lots of exposure. Making changes to keep up with new developments in the market and to keep abreast with the competition. Salary and benefits are extremely difficult to match outside as employees are rewarded well. Work-life balance is achieveable and offices are modern with great facilities.

    Cons

    It's a big company and it can be easy to feel lost in the crowd. Personal and professional development is not emphasised, Employees can often lack passion and motivation. Good performance often not rewarded or acknolwledged.

    Advice to Management

    When making big changes, remember to consider people. People are the greatest assets. The most passionate people in the company are starting to become quiet and disengage. Take caution.
