Big names aren't always the best
Trainee Accountant (Former Employee) – Stellenbosch, Western Cape – 6 March 2019
The job was very demanding as the teams were not big enough to complete all the work. Therefore many employees were over-worked.
Although you get benefits like medical aid, etc. the salary itself did not do justice for the number of hours you would need to put in to complete all the work.
The company promotes a balanced lifestyle however it did not seem evident that anyone was successfully implementing this balanced lifestyle they were promoting.
Management seemed to care about your wellbeing, but in the end, the job needs to get done and deadlines need to be met.
Employees and co-workers seemed drained and depressed and were living from weekend to weekend if they had all their work up to date, which was not always the case.
Clients take long to send the required information and therefore played a big role in the deadlines.
