Great experience
Eskom has been a great part of my journey, my very first job was with them and I have been happy ever since. However it is time to venture into other companies and hopefully other work experiences (Sales).

Eskom is a very good company especially generation
At Eskom Generation people they have ubuntu and company enthics. Protective maintenance and quality is the key at Eskom. I do not have much to say about they management part. If the lights is not on meaning load shedding that's hardest part. To have the opportunity to work on Scheduled maintenance (Outages) is the enjoyable part cause you get to overhaul the whole plant you learn every dfrfromfrth

fun work place
I was in customer service so this is a daily interaction with customers on the phone and walk in customers.
During those years I have gained intense customer service experience.

Management was ok and very helpful with refresher training curses as well as hands on type of managing.

The working environment was good and with the right tools for the job.

Working the front desk is the hardest job having to deal with upset customers face to face some are understanding but some are not so nice using inappropriate language and the back office was the most enjoyable job that's where I basically sat on the computer to resolve some account queries etc.
Pros
none
Cons
most of the times

Eskom is a great company to work for with great benefits and culture tge only issue is that some people get put in wrong positions.
Be ready to hit the ground running its very exciting and challenging to work for Eskom but if you are driven and looking to make a difference then this is the place to be, all projects are very complex but with the skill sets of the employees nothing can go wrong, this is a family unit.

Happy workplace environment
It is a good company to work for. The staff and the management make it a happy workplace environment. I have learnt so much form the company including time management, discipline, culture and morals. Working at the
Lab is the most exciting part for me because that is where I gain most my insights and knowledge in chemistry. Truly speaking I have never experienced any difficulties with the job because we work as a team and my teammates are the best.

Fun place to work at
I really enjoyed my time at Eskom. The people are really caring and there is a great opportunity for growth. I had an opportunity to travel across the country to work on some of the most interesting engineering projects. They also have a very well structured program that they use to train their interns and there is a whole spectrum of engineering undertakings that they expose you to. You can then make a choice based on what interests you the most.

Poor management
I have learnt to work under pressure and respect time.The experience that I have acquired at Eskom I want to share that with the next company.Management is very poor and salaries are never reviewed.
Doing my job perfectly and accurately made me a better person.

Best place to work
Eskom is a great place to work. The problem is the political interference when appointing CEO and the board of directors. Eskom is still revivable with the right senior management.
