I was a branch manager and as well a sales consultant. Management needs to be more in communication with staff I work very close to the clients and most off all the client is always right

Absa is a place to work and i like the culture.

working for Absa has been amazing for me.when i joined Absa i was from a very horrible place,management and staff made me to feel at home.The salary is also not bad..even though i feel they reward fairly i also feel like the salaries must be aligned to the cost of living of a particular place.

Too much focus on BEE and not enough on real talent and skills.

Too much focus on BEE and not enough on real talent and skills. Training and development was awesome. Could be more focused on promotion of all ensuring diverse promotion and not only BEE.

Highly stressful environment

Absa should look after their employees and cultivate a better working environment than the current one we are exposed to. We as the employees are not very happy with what is currently happening. There is restructuring of employees currently happening. Job security is at a low

Pros

Not applicable

Cons

Travelling distance from home to work is bad

Dynamic

In the marketing and communications roles within the group, no one day is similar to the next. I have learnt to be resilient and proactive at work. What I experienced is that the career advancement within the organization is very much linked to the relationship you have with your manager and other key individuals.

Very productive and fun at times

Very hectic day especially month ends, there is a lot to learn and the support of staff is great. The culture is ok as it varies with every Branch. The hardest part is when u r required to do the job and are tests to write, we would usually leave it to the last minutes (Pressure is fun as it will bring the best out of people). When we dress up on our Casual clothes and getting prizes for product knowledge.

Pros

Free lunches on busy days

Cons

Meetings for sales reports
