The place was okay

There was no work/ life balance. You work long hours with short breaks. You are supervised almost all the time. There is a lot of micro management and job security is low

Great company to work for

Santam's a great company to work for; they pay well, the culture is fair and mature, however, it has a very traditional outlook on the business. Still, I would recommend working at Santam to my friends and family.

Pros

Competitive salary, easy-going company culture

Cons

None

Work load

The training was perfectly presented and the trainers are well prepared to conduct training. Too much work to do and you will be overwhelmed especially if you don't have the background for it. Gets easier though as you go through it and get used to the system and workflow and find your own method that will suit you obviously being a compliant and detailed person.

Pros

Staff transport

Cons

Work load

I had a competitive,challenging, fruitful and advancing 12 years at Santam. My learning experiences at Santam was rewarding and complete. My 2nd position at Santam was a finance approval clerk and my 3rd positon was an accounts payable clerk position which i just started to learn alot in the team but then finished work in 2019. I would love to return to Santam soon.

Pros

Sometimes we would get a coupon when on training

Security and good financial benefits

Stable secure environment to work in, however there is heavy workload and poor work-life balance. It’s also not easy to move around in the company.

All ok until you move

While everyone is working from home we had to relocate for the one in our household that is main bread winner. Although you can perform 99% of work from home and they close the big office they refuse relocation. Force resignation. No interest to help or accommodate. Short soghted management

Pros

Some bonuses

Cons

No flexibility

Got skills that I never had, great work ethics, fun people to work with and very helpful

Communication is key, asking for help is the best way to get things done. Understand what the client wants and creating good relationship with the client is good for business

Fun, productive and great experience

* 15min before logging in, we start our daily morning meeting. * Log in start capturing claims. * Management will follow up with any outstanding or pending claims captured by the team. * The workplace culture was very uplifting if one cav say or should I say lifly. * Hardest part of the day was battling to be at the top within the department with regards to targets. * Being at work!!!
