I enjoyed working at absa as I gained more experience. Just team work was not there at all times but I manage to co operate with the situation. I also develop in working under pressure. I started as a teller but I ended up as a Treasury clerk doing Atms as well. So I manage to learn Atms, Treasury and business Teller.I learned to take instructions as it is and not argue and stay positive in every situation.
Pros
No lunch in busy days
Cons
Long hours with a Saturday

The workplace is quite interesting but stressful most of the time. The staff collaboration is outstanding and teamwork is the priority while maintaining the company's value as the basis of all actions.

A typical day at work was challenging, w.r.t dealing with a very diverse society / client base but I enjoyed every minute of it. I loved and respected my clients. Management was great. I was respected, trusted and given the necessary support when needed. I have learnt a lot about people relations in a whole. The hardest part of the job is watching my colleagues go off for training and courses while I'm stagnating. The most enjoyable part of my job was the satisfaction of satisfying the most irate client's needs, while keeping all internal stakeholders happy at the same time.
Pros
Job satisfaction
Cons
I can't think of any

ABSA like any big bank is very high pressure and competitive environment. There are many departments offering learning opportunities. I was a bit disappointed when Barclays broke away as i was looking forward to the opportunities to work internationally.

If given a chance, I'd go back, as my skills were sharpened by ABSA and am the most admired employee. I've learned different roles and responsibilities and made sure I performed to the best of my ability and scooped a number of performance accolades. Based on my excellent performance from the day I had started, I never got affected by any restructuring, as most departmental managers wanted me within their respective departments. Although, the salary wasn't that good, I wanted to stay longer, but had to resign due to family relocation.

I started at absa as they required person with a certain degree, however the amount of work asked of colleagues compared to the salary is ridiculous, especially when they require NQF 5 or higher.
