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

If a person would enter the banking industry for experience it's worth giving it a shout but wouldn't recommend banking for more than 3 years. The banking industry tends to eat you up but yet makes u stronger as its sales driven and its customers are hard but through experience you learn to adjust and cope.

The hours can be stressful and the working conditions are also not good, the expectations from the managers and the pressure they put on you as an individual is immense

Job instability due to continuous restructuring and retrenchments.

Pros- great work place for cross cultural communication across UK and African countries.


Cons- Retrenchments on a continuous basis (2 years in a row) during my service.

Due to the above, no increases, no bonus, no work and family life balance.

If you're lucky enough to get permanent employment, it would be a great place to work. However, if you are on a fixed-term contract, management tends to forget to motivate for budget for contract extensions.
Pros
Canteen, Working hours, facilities
Cons
Lack of long-term planning for contractors
