Overall Reviews at University of the Witwatersrand

Student Assistant | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 18 Jan 2016
Student assistant
A typical work day would require helping students in a and around campus. People skills was very important as well as communication skills. My co- workers were easy to work with and effective in making the process run smoothly. The most challenging part of the job was having to deal with different personalities from meeting different people. The most enjoyable part was being able to interact with different people of different cultures.

Human Resources Manager | Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga | 02 Jan 2015
Ongoing learning experience and very enjoyable
I worked closely with senior management, however I was self starter and able to organize work for my subordinates. I was thorough in my work since the data that we collected is vital to inform Health policy in South Africa. So I was putting extra efforts to minimize mistakes in all the teams I was responsible for I kept the my supervisors as well as my fieldworkers motived to ensure that there is no compromise in data quality I learned to manage myself and be dedicate in my work and these enabled me to gain a lot of experience with regard managing a huge project such as census data collection The hardest part of my job was when my senior was on sabbatical leave and I was left to run the census data collection on without him nearby
ProsI wasexposed to a learning environment
ConsI worked long hours and my responsibilities were overstreched
Administrative Officer | Braamfontein, Gauteng | 24 Jan 2013
Need to have strong nerves and on the ball all the time
Motivation comes from a sense of satisfaction derived from a job well done. Recognition from a happy employer and happy clients drives me to achieve greater success. I derive a great satisfaction from leading and motivating others to strive for service excellence.
Research Assistant | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 23 Jan 2020
Learned a lot about South African history
It was a great experience with lots of reading and interviewing people, you learn how to make other comfortable, while asking the hard questions. It's an opportunity I will always cherish.
Senior Database Administrator | City of Johannesburg, Gauteng | 06 May 2019
Steady yet stimulating working environment
I learned and gained experience in the following * Installation and upgrading of high-end products * Integration of various software solutions to provide programmatic solutions for the company's challenges. * Leading and motivating a team from diverse backgrounds, with equally diverse skills and personalities. Workplace culture has been challenging at times. Partly due to change of higher level management and how that affects the work force. Also, partly due to the political climate of the country seeping through into the office environment. This contributes to some individuals putting in a lot of effort and hard work while others manage to just have it easy.
ProsWorking with diverse community, flexible working hours, 24 days leave a year including closed over Christmas period
ConsDifferentiation between support staff as academic staff - academic staff is seen as superior
Risk Manager | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 27 Feb 2019
A good place to tutor and work. Management was supportive and understanding. It was rewarding to tutor and learn at the same time. The other tutors built relationships with each other and got along.
