Exploitation and nepotism is rife here
Marketing (Former Employee) – Salt River, Western Cape – 2 August 2019
Don't consider this place if you care about your mental health. This place is toxic to the core.
The heads of department have a blatant disregard for general staff & you will often be stifled & undermined no matter how hard you try to succeed at this company.
They'll tell you that there's 'opportunity' here, but that's because you are expected to perform multiple functions and fill many roles without being compensated for it - they'll make it seem like 'experience' but it's really just a front for their poor management of staff and inability to fill roles. Simply : YOU WILL BE OVERWORKED FOR NO EXTRA PAY.
This place is no start-up, they are a fully-formed company functioning with a tiny staff count, despite having global ties.
Your grievances are never heard and when they are adressed (which is rarely), they are quickly forgotten or swept under the rug to protect the company's reputation and the managers' egos.
As for the physical working environment, the floors are barely cleaned, the canteen's ceilings leak during winter, there are rats running wild in the office and the building has poor ventillation overall.
