My job was good but the management was very unprofesional and and inhumane that made the experience and my time unbearable.
Do as your motto " the city works for you" because for me i was even sleeping on site as we would knock off 22:00 having to go to Khayelitsha at that time without transportation to take me home at that time and money i was using on transport was around R2000 on the very same salary i was getting meaning i was working for transport.

Working for City of Cape Town was good
I loved working for the City. The hours, salary and benefits were great. The only reason I left was because as soon as I started speaking my mind was the day my Manager changed towards me.

Poorly management
The management at this Depo in Wynberg is poor they are very productive when they want to get you out or in my case dismissed all due to personal reasons. Don't talk about asking advancements then they inform you there's no money in the budget even though you've worked years doing extra work out of your contract. They send you on all training to do the work but don't expect to get compensation expectations

Was employed here for seven years. Not so good when it comes to promoting staff.

Good Workplace
The City of Cape Town is a good place to work in that it offers stability in terms of always having work, while it offers great benefits.

However, in the Engineering field, most of the work entails maintenance. Yes, one does gain familiarity with design and construction standards, but most design and construction work is outsourced. So there is very little application in terms of actually physically doing designs and using the available software or running construction sites. Only some has access to software such as AutoCad and Civil 3d or Civil Designer and if working in a depot environment, construction tends to be narrow and focuses on a particular civil service rather than on the broader scale.


To be fair, the City of Cape Town is a very good company to work for if you plan on retiring, but in terms of gaining a broader exposure to the built environment and having a more hands on experience, the private sector offers more experience.
Pros
stability with regards to employment, remuneration benefits, exposure to design standards and standard practices
Cons
Little exposure to engineering tasks, i.e, using design software and doing new designs

Good place to work if you are lucky to have good management
Great pension benefits,
Bad management (unprofessional, inconsiderate and unapproachable, showing favoritism and racial preference to staff from their own cultural background, Also overloading people due to people leaving and not being replaced - more frequent illness results and negative impact at home.
Pros
Possibility to move within organisation
Cons
Doing more than one persons work, no effort to replace them

Was ok working there
It was ok working there, especially the benefits. But you move slowly into new positions because most of the time the positions are already earmarked. Favouritism is alive in CCT. If they don't like you, you don't get anything right. People aren't treated fair. Some General workers get away with murder whilst those working their butt off don't even get recognised. Management level also sucks
