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

An 8 to 5 job which can extent depending on the volume of cliënts per day, overtime is not always compensated. Worked in all different departments in Retail Banking from investments, loans, transactional banking to estate planning. Management in Absa is managing the employees, not leading because they are not update with groundlevel. Employees work to cover their backs and not always cliënt friendly. Meeting a target just to find the target is increased as soon as you reach it, in other words shifting the goalpost all the time. Cliënt satisfaction and appreciation when product or service is succesfully provided.
Pros
A stepping stone to learn for a better job.
Cons
Salary, working hours and weak promotion opertunities.
