A place to work

Good place to start career, progression is tricky. Make sure you have good networks to not get stuck. Putting your head down won't guarantee success, you need to know people.

Productive and Fun workplace

Life changing. Excellent career and personal growth opportunities. Willing to educate their stuff by providing study help packages. Flexible working hours

Stressful environment

Very stressful and biased leaders. No growth potential unless you a candidate of EE. Not fair to all staff. Over work existing experienced staff because roles are filled as a result of EE and not skills needed for business growth. Wasted 2years at his organization. Culture is night and day compared to at the beginning of my career. Not a healthy environment.

Cons

Overworked to carry other EE candidates that are not carrying their weight.

Caring and supportive organisation

Absa was one best Corporate Company I ever worked for. The employer respect and look well after their employees in all areas. Development is the key in the company. It is very easy and fair to climb the ladder inside the company. Management is always supportive of career growth and development.

Fast paced and busy

Growth is there and opportunities to study are there as well. The environment is very fast paced and there culture needs a bit of work to it but its an ok company.

A fun place to be be. You will feel at home!

A multicultural environment; full of diversity and inclusion. The people are warm and exciting! Absa supports brainwave ideas and rewards hard workers. Absa believes in values that aim to bring out who they are as a brand that cares for its customers both external and internal.

Pros

Gym, subsidy on cafeteria

Cons

Short breaks, limited healthcare benefits. E.g they wont pay for your braces....

I think Absa should consider rehiring their previously retrenched staff because they have experience

fun to work at absa, however job security is an issue. It is a good company with good company policies. I think Absa should consider rehiring their previously retrenched staff because they have experience

Great company to work for if you are in the right segment

Great place, flexibility on work life balance. Also nice packages on salary but for internal moves salary increase is constrained. No transparency on salary scales easy to be underpaid

Fast paced

The only thing they can change is to give internal stuff more opportunities unlike looking for new staff that need to be trained first rather prioritize uplifting internal stâff

Good place to start your career

A great company to start a career. It’s very fast-paced and you get to deal with a variety of different people - both good and bad. It’s a highly competitive work environment that can easily be interpreted as toxic but it does prepare you for anything and everything.Definitely teaches one to be thick-skinned while also giving great exposure to different technical subject matter.

Pros

Learning opportunity

Cons

Stif/ cut-throat work environment
