It's a high performance environment and can sometimes be stressful but will give you all the opportunity you need to grow and even travel abroad on short term assignments.

Great company to work for. A great challenge however to maintain a family/ work life since most employees are so driven. People always worked more to maintain company standards. Offers great opportunities for life however. Management are professional. Driven yet people oriented.

Pros

Highly competitive

They pay well and demand as much in return as would any other American organization. Due to the nature of our departments work and living closest to the Bank and being the head of my department, I took the responsibility of going to work as and when there was a requirement to approve a transactions would could occur anywhere in the world. This meant being on the job as and when required. I found the most fun part of the job doing projects like implementing changes in software and training people. My co-workers were good to work with and enjoyed the same work ethic. I learned that when there is a transaction going on, it is usually a matter of uttermost importance to the person in another country which could mean the ruin of his business if it did not go through so i inculcated this understanding to my colleagues. That this needs to be just as important to us. Life is not just doing a job, its enjoying what we do and understanding why we do it. Making a job easier and more efficient for everyone who works with you, understanding their situation and letting them work in accordance with it. Getting higher up the ladder does not mean less work, it means more responsibility. It means adapting to change and embracing what it entails.

Pros

Housing for Habitat

Cons

Very long hours, on call 24/7

enjoyable and productive

typical day in the morning we do same day returns, then move over to T+4 trades which are crucial because they crucial as the JSE runs the reversal. I have learned to manage time effectively and thrive under pressure. The management style is more of an open door kind of policy co-workers are easy to work with and strongly believe in team work \ the hardest would really be dealing with difficult customers and the pressure and risk that comes with the job you learn a lot from different people and about the stock exchange its self

Pros

learning how to deal with pressure

Cons

working with lazy people

Fast paced global environment

I am currently the SSA (Sub-Sahara Africa) Cluster Planning & Analysis Officer at Citibank. The role involves engaging with stakeholder across SSA and liaising with global counterparts to understanding the internal and external drivers of business performance with the view to share and create clarity on SSA specific issues with the global partners. The continuing analysis also allows me to share valuable insights which aid the Planning / budgeting process. I would now like to be part of business and drive performance from within the business and not just as a finance business partner. I have learned the following amongst other things: 1) Manage expectations / relationships and to be able to interact with business partners from different parts of the world / cultures. 2) Supervise junior staff with the view to drive productivity while helping them develop their skills / careers. 3) Liaise with senior members of the organisation. The challenges in my role include: 1) Managing expectations vs. team productivity. 2) Constantly finding ways to add value to clients. 3) Managing work / life balance My job is ever changing and allows room to constantly learn and understand different parts of the business.

Pros

Continuous changing environment and global exposure

Cons

Very long hours
