Emplyees vs. Management

The employees of the bank are friendly and there's a generally good culture in the bank. The middle Management team on the otherhand are not very friendly and have drawn an invisible barrier between themselves and the rest of the employees. The "open-door" policy did not exist and when confided in, the particular Manager I reported to would discuss what I had told him in confidence with other employees.

Pros

Shuttle services to Gautrain Station and the subsidised lunches.

Cons

Contractors contracted to work for the bank are treated like total outsiders

Benefits are amazing and the management style can be improved

I enjoy my job a lot as it is not repetitive, I get to work with new content each time. A typical day starts at 7:30 am and ends at 16:00 pm. Thereafter it's the gym, which is on the premises and available for free. The management style can be improved.

Pros

Free lunches and gym

Cons

Formal wear all week

Okay workplace, management needs improvement

Stringent and strict managers who micromanage the most out of you. Constantly busy, no time to relax, feeling underappreciated the list goes on. I can keep going

Best Employer

SARB is one of the best employers in the country. The employees have a lot of benefits that no company can match. Sadly I had to leave because I was not growing in my career

Challenging but rewarding

Good place to work, many fringe benefits. Dynamic and opportunistic learning in this organisation as there is a large cultural and demographic divide in the bank
