Good organization to work for.
Wits University is a good organization to work for provided that management at particular departments are able to manage well. Overall I would recommend people to work for this organization as it has good benefits and the environment is pleasant.

Stressful and very fast-paced
Stressful and very fast-paced and pressured work environment which offers little opportunity to practice a healthy work-life balance. However, it does offer the ability to work flexibility and the ability to work from home.
Pros
Flexible work hours and ability to work from home
Cons
Stressful and pressured work conditions

Productive and Fun working place
The culture at Wits is very professional and effecient. They hire the best staff who are from diverse parts of the world. The salary is not so good. However, the salary is negotiable. The culture is very open and they are willing to work with each other.

great working environment as we support one another and enjoyable working environment as there lot of supporting structures available.
Going to work is always fun. Best place I have ever worked in my 15 years of working experience. Every position is worth it as it is secured with good benefits. Management very supportive and the culture is good. There is unity. Always promoting and helping people to upgrade themselves. the only hardest part is when there is a student protest as I work in Protection services. I have learned a lot especially team work since I joined.

Great benefits and opportunities
Much of your daily experiences will depend on your line manager's style. There are however many benefits such as study subsidies, unlimited opportunities for promotion and above average annual leave.
