Great place to work and meet lots of new people.
Great culture, plenty of independence.

Most enjoyable is the attitude of fellow colleagues and their willingness to help .

Management might not be too transparent and willing to assist with ideas.

Days are always busy.
Pros
great food shops

long hours

I worked shifts and was always able to maintain my working hours. We only dealt with major incidents and were always supposed to be ready and available for them. my managers and co workers were friendly and we had a good working relationship. Even outside of work we would meet up and still enjoy each others company. Productive and work life balance
Pros

Standard Bank was a great company to work for with opportunities to advance yourself by attending a range of in house courses. Getting to know my clients and form a bond with them that can sometimes be for years was one of the best experiences, even if I just visited a once of client to give/train them on the fleet management system was also and experience. When new management was appointed they began with micro management our whole team felt that there was a distrust yet we all made targets when they took over. Unfortunately due to this they lost a few people all who had over 20 years of experience.
Pros

Put proper people as leaders to coordinate the business and make working at Standard bank worthwhile.
You become a threat and get targeted if one views their opinion and differ with leaders with low self esteem.
