i have learned that team work is very essential in any business and also that you need to take control of your own work and also take full responsibility for your actions. Always support the people around you as you might need them and to make work more enjoyable/fun. Having a management team who trusts you at all time builds a lot of confidence.
Pros
Working from home

This was where my career took off. Intensive learning curves, perks, stock portfolio, and a stable, clever company to work and engage work. Outside of working environments I would recommend this bank as the leader and recommendation for all personal investments.

The company is great and fun to work for, the balance between work and play is just perfect however . It's an innovative bank and very good brand. Typical day at work is pretty much busy actually but that comes good experience in working effectively, smart and get to be exposed to new queries.

There is no such thing as a typical day at work. You will always go above and beyond your job description and there is always an opportunity to learn. You will generally learn how to do the job, on the job.

The type of clients that you will deal with are the top tier in South African and thus, an extremely high touch, efficient service delivery is required.


The culture is incredibly vibrant, energetic and autonomous.

At my time at Investec Bank we were undergoing a transformation from the Apartheid years in South Africa into a new era, I was tasked with introducing Foreign-based accounts into the equity desk and also opening up various African Markets.

They've positioned themselves as one of the best employers and I can honestly attribute this to the culture and the people. They don't pay well at all

Great place to work with a fun culture. Would recommend it to anyone just starting out their career. However, career opportunities may be slightly limited due to niche nature of the organisation.

A Typical day starts by catching up with friends, followed by a comfortable working environment. This enables one to be productive, and strive to achieve.

I learned a great deal as I was always pushed to my limits and encouraged to further my knowledge.

Really rewarding, competitive, and challenging environment to work in. Employees are encouraged to treat their every day work as business owners contracted to the company. Great drive for performance. Constantly exposed to cutting edge technology, different development streams, varying infrastructure, and different businesses. Management are invested within their respective sectors that constantly drive for efficiency and performance with in-depth knowledge and experience in their respective fields. The hardest part of the job would be the environment created by each employee treating his/her job as their own business; every person has their own opinion and is not necessarily inclined to change or see others as partners to their endeavors. Really rewarding when applauded and acknowledged for contributions made.
Pros
Experience
Cons
Egos
