Excellent team culture as it offers opportunity for cross functional relationship across its many operations in different countries. The annual sales conferences at offsite locations on a rotational basis offered the team a lot of fun and recreations and opportunities to review, unwind, and strategize.
Offsite meeting opportunities, frequent travels, work mixed with fun
Friendly colleaques and timely managerial support on issues
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Lagos – 1 November 2016
A day starts with review of possible mails from sister offices from other parts of the globe. Requests are attended to and then settle down to attend to the daily local demands.
I have learnt to exercise calmness in any situation while finding solutions to any difficult needs. The management is always supportive of the local challenges that may seem intractable, and the co-workers are very friendly and understanding.
The hardest part had always been managing my primary responsibilities to satisfy the management needs and attending to the unending tax issues that emanate from both the Federal and State Revenue Services.
The most interesting part of the job had been when the period is successfully closed without any major hitches.
Full medical care, bonus and leave
challenge of different time zones if online meeting is required

A typical day at work with interfacing clients and contractors
Project Manager Eastern Cape Region (Current Employee) – Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape – 8 May 2016
A typical day at work is to be adjustable to changes. This is not by lack of planning your day and your duties but the clients expectations and priorities changes daily and we need to be ready to act accordingly by planning the contractors schedules and equipment deliveries. Reporting on all activities take place before work started or after working hours. Discipline and focussing on completing the activities take priority in the day. Invoicing is part of our early morning discussions for the day ahead. Communication is crucial and morning , mid day and afternoon feedback is required to make this an success.

The company is great. I learned so many things in this company while I'm under training. The management and my co-workers are awesome. The hardest part of the job is when a unit is so hard to troubleshoot. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you fixed a unit.

A nice place to work and learnt on the job, a chance other big companies may not give. The management is supportive, allowing for growth and development of skills. I learnt how to interface with customers and provide solutions to their networks' issues which I enjoy very well. Politics in the organization seem to resent me but all large organizations have it.
