Workplace to be used as a stepping stone towards future opportunities
Infrastructure Team Lead (Former Employee) – Cape Town, Western Cape – 8 January 2018
This company, although they proclaim to be 'the best', does not look after the employees at all Employees are used as a means to generate income for the Executive management, and are neglected and ill treated Employees are subject to going for years without proper increases and/or incentives
Good stepping stone as exposure is given to a wide array of skills
TSE (Current Employee) – Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng – 20 January 2018
Land of broken promises, work is fine but conditions versus benefits and payments are not so good, lack of proper tools makes working harder, overall just a stop over until one can get someone/place that can appreciate your skills

CISCO BU Manager (Current Employee) – Samrand, Gauteng – 11 April 2017
Currently I was head hunted to head up the CISCO BU on a national level. I have found the culture to be nothing short of friendly, helpful. Management is approachable and patient. The hardest part of my job is try to dig down through the multiple levels of decision makers across multiple buss units. The teamwork in the lower levels and determination to succeed.
Service Engineer (Current Employee) – Bloemfontein, Free State – 10 April 2017
Not a bad place to work, should you not be looking for a career path. You learn a lot. Most people are willing to help you if you are uncertain of certain procedures etc. Do not expect any raises or promotion soon or at any time. The position you are appointed in is the position you will stay in. Other than that I can't actually complain. I mainly manage myself and typically work from home. You do travel a lot, but you get used to it.

Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) – Gauteng Pretoria – 23 June 2016
Being an outsourcing company I find myself based at client site and not head office. Arrive at work before 7:30 refreshed and ready for the days challengers cause there is always something new everyday. There are various types of people in every organization and we should choose our words carefully when speaking and interacting with them. Management will always encourage you to give off your best no matter what the situation it , one should really be calm in the IT environment. Pleasure to work with some co - workers, some like to work as individuals and other in a team which is much better. Hardest part will be when you cannot get a hold of clients and you have work to do , it sort of messes up your entire day but you work around it .Most enjoyable part of the job will be when you setup appointments and are able to meet clients on time and you are able to resolve their IT requests sooner than expected and on the first attempt. The other enjoyable part will be the get together we have as a team and we get to socialize with our fellow colleagues
