BankservAfrica as the only National Payment service provider, offered unique insights into the payments industry. Over 40 years of service meant that the services on offer were legacy which limited ability to move with technological changes as required. Constant learning's and changes impacted on daily business creating a learning environment. Being with and engaging with Banks was the most interesting part of the job as each bank viewed and managed its business differently, BSA services however remained constant.
Pros
Great skilled people
Cons
inflexibiliy

It was fun before the new CEO, now we don't even know if our job are secured. Reshuffling is his best priority at the moment and it makes employees to panic. Lots of favouritism in recruitment. You need to know someone in management to be hired or as long as you come from a certain company you will be considered. No open policy everything done in a wrong way from top management.
Cons
Recruitment process

Lack of culture but job security takes preference. Good annual increases and bonusses for those who met their KPI's. Fun place to work at but needs a bit of TLC

Well the company as a whole is a fun company, I've learned how to better interact with customer. A typical day at work is entertaining specially with the customers we come across. Hardest part of the job is handling an irate customer who is not willing to listen.
Pros
We get free lunch once a month
Cons
Shift work

A typical day at work would consist of prospecting for new clients and to meet with potential customers to tell them about how the EFT product can assist them in managing their business more effectively.

Keeping one's current customers satisfied is of utmost importance and a lot of effort goes into keeping in regular contact with them to ensure that the product works to their satisfaction and to determine whether there are other ways in which we can serve them (by means of the other products that BSVA IS offer).


I gained tremendous insight and knowledge into the workings of the EFT industry and the rules that govern the industry (e.g. PCI DSS, PA DSS, infrastructure requirements, etc).


My colleagues are all very professional and are a pleasure to work with.

Meetings, telephone calls, emails
Follow-ups on projects, new leads, client relationship management

Team work

Hardest part of the job is decisions at times being taken by someone else though it affects your work output

Enjoyable part is the travelling, meeting new people and learning and experience diversity
Pros
assistance with personal development through sponsorship of learning programmes
Cons
interference of regulatory frameworks in some countries
