It's okay

New staff not welcomed. There's a lot of good people there. There's also the old stuff with bullying tendencies. Pay is good so is the reward I. E. Bonus

Good company to work with

Santam has introduced flexi hours in most sites. A lot of overtime is being worked. Management are always not so compassionate to personal issues. The workplace culture is not so good at some sites as the people have strict targets and dont really get to be social after work as they are required to work overtime should the site need them. Good bonusses are always provided if you work hard and do what is expected from you.

Pros

Flexi Hours and Paid overtime

Cons

Plenty of overtime, no opportunities to grow

Productive Challenging and Changing workplace

The day to day work, meeting targets on time, I have learned to be a strong team player, adapt to changes,to be assertive, to be open for learning opportunities Reporting to males can be hard, but i have mastered the art of being in a male dominating environment by being strong , i also built character, and communication skills My co-workers were caring, although i had to deal with politics based on race and salary differences The hardest part was working in a certain job grade, with more hours and responsibilities, yet a lesser salary The most enjoying part, was the opportunity i created for myself to grow and outsmart what i was doing o what i now can do

Pros

Free lunches when and Employee leaves, and sometimes you can leave a few minutes early, esp in crisis, leave was never a problem

Cons

long hours, less pay, Work Pressure

Santam is a large professional corporate with acceptable benefits and great bonusses if you perform. It is a company you can work for for an entire lifetime and they supoort individual growth and training.

Pros

great bonusses and acceptable salary offerings

Cons

company very large which might make you feel like a cog in wheel, just another number, Too strict on BEE policy, leading to unfair promotions and appointments and limiting growth opportunity for minorities.

Work from 8:00am till 4:30pm

Report , report and more reports. Learned to interact with brokers who are our client. Management has been supportive through out and we get recognition were its due. I work in a diverse environment with different cultures and backgrounds which make it more interesting. Not being able to balance to what the brokers is suppose to pay is really frustrating at time more especially when you have a short month and the last two weeks are the also the most hardest as premiums needs to be raised and allocated and no room for errors. Most enjoyable part is when you know you have done you work with no loose ends

Pros

Being able to have our monthly gatherings after close off

Cons

Now and then you have to put up extra hours to make sure everything is done on that certain month
