Absa Bank Ltd does not care about their employees or even their clients as proven by the way they do business for the last 22 years. They cannot even get the basics right. Employees working for this company have personal life issues or relationship failures at least once somewhere in their career. They expect everything with the very basic and limited resources they have and do not care how it affect the client facing staff.
Pros
None
Cons
Bad reputation - ashamed to tell people you work for Absa Bank.

The people of Absa makes Absa, they are resilient, loyal and proud of the brand. I learned to perform and achieve results through people, by enabling and empowering them. The workplace culture is value driven , guided by respect, integrity, customer service excellence and respect. The hardest part of the job is to compete in the market with a lot of regulatory constraints The most enjoyable part was celebrating our achievements!.
Pros
Resilience to change
Cons
Highly regulated

Absa, like other financial institutions is highly regulated and rigid because it has to adhere to legislative requirements. Irrespective of compliance, it is an interesting organisation to work for with many growth opportunities if you are hardworking. Their skills development courses were excellent. Although working hours were from 8, many choose to start earlier to get through the day's work - so did I and worked late to ensure deadlines are met. Most times this was appreciated, other times it may be taken for granted as the norm. this impacted work/life balance. The hardest part was trying to satisfy customers/stakeholders (internally), especially when there is only one of you in the region. e.g. Regional Communications Manager. I experienced power struggles, personality clashes among colleagues that at times negatively impacted the culture. This was not dominant though. One could still thrive and progress and achieve. Absa invested in its people. I enjoyed the variety of tasks within my various portfolios. I count myself fortunate to have been granted all the opportunities to build my career over the 23 years.
Pros
Career prospects, skills development, experience
Cons
Workload, lack of support at times

I worked with a great team in a high stress and target driven environment.Carried a number of responsibilities as I worked in a small team which meant that I had to open and close the bank which was also very risky.If any of the tellers did not balance then I had to work late.I was the only consultant so I could only get off one saturday per month.When I raised concerned about my low salary compared to my other coleagues in same position it fell on deaf ears.
Pros
Great training facilities
Cons
Low salary

Management is respective and reasonable according to policy. The job does not have hardest parts but challenges that you overcome. The most enjoyable is new challenges and changes that you learn from and that you continually grow and develop yourself.
