Contact/teaching time with pupils

Has a latent potential but bureaucracy is holding its productivity.
1. A typical day was unproductive.
2. Industrial Engineering-Lean tools.
3. Management was poor.
4. Were willing to learn more.
5. Doing one interesting task then you sit down the whole day.
6. Information was readily available at all times and was accessible.
If it can listen to its workers especially bottom (floor workers) it can perform wonders.
ConsMost of the work was done using old methods
Supportive team structures
Amazing company to work for and staff development is highly supported. UJ is a fully imaginative, open-minded and courage company which prides itself in co-creating solutions for its community.
Very flexible workplace
I only worked as a student assistant for a month each year for 3 years so my experience in this regard i do not deem substantial to be used to draw any conclusions.
beneficial and interesting
I've learned a lot from my work place, including time management, how to make presentations on my own and also building positive relationships with work colleagues. The hardest part of my job is when non of the reactions are giving positive results and the time is limited. The most enjoyable part is when we celebrate publications made from our lab.
Prosbirthday celebrations for every colleague
Conslack of equipment for everyone
productive and a fun diverse working environment
The company provided a safe and conjusive work environment that enables one to grow and thrive in the corporate world, and created a diverse environment where people are able to interact.
Academic professionalism by people who have realized that South Africa has an Education problem but instead of turning a blind eye to the problem and incidentally contributing to it by only permitting academic acceptance to students who already have an undergraduate degree - UJ seeks to bridge that academic gap through the implementation of a successful tutor base for Law Students right up until completion of the LLB Degree.
ProsOpen Minded - Professional
ConsNot implemented in the best possible way
