    I have been working at Tshwane University of Technology part-time

    Pros

    Nice environment to work. Loads of projects to work on with wonderful professors.

    Cons

    Some supervisors treat their students like trash.

    Advice to Management

    Good work by the management but the uni authority needs to deal with some incompetent supervisors.

    I worked at Tshwane University of Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of leave, flexibility, easy to stand out, an opportunity to really make a difference in young students with difficult backgrounds lives.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic, very political, not a very nice work space, poorly located, frustrating processes or lack thereof, inadequately resourced.

    Advice to Management

    The educational environment is tough in South Africa and funding is scarce. I would advise management to adopt a more entrepreneurial stance in running the university in order to harness the talent and inspiration of the academic environment. Red-tape should be reduced or eliminated altogether, individuals with vision and drive should be given more responsibility, developed and encouraged, and stronger ties with business should be created. An entrepreneurial mindset should be encouraged at all levels, from the students to the senior management, as supposedly stated in the university's anthem.

    I have been working at Tshwane University of Technology part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of funding and resources for post graduates working part-time.

    Cons

    Not enough training for part-time lecturers, bureaucracy and not enough experienced supervisors and HOD's to create an enabling environment for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Please re-structrure the organization, hire the right people to run the departments not people that cannot take the institution forward. There needs to be more people that have passion to empower students and who love what they do .

    Most of all, listen to your students . They are your clients.
