Corporate work environment

Standard Bank is a highly corporate and professional enviornment. It can be intimidating at times, especially the building I am based in, as it is the head office where most of the Executives of the bank are based. One gets to meet the most influential people in the banking industry, from the CEO's to share holders who are well known in South Africa. I enjoy working there, because it has opened my eyes to a world I would have never dreamt exists. It has taught me to dream big, and see beyond the boundaries. The management treats all the staff equally, there is no discrimination according to job type, race, or educational level. They have great morals and Ethics that they take very seriously. The building I work in is very user friendly and comfortable, it is modern and designed to make working fun. I have always been a team player, although i prefer people who share the same passion for my work as i do, because people who slack I believe make a team weak. My co-workers are wonderful, we are all client orientated and serve one purpose, which is to satisfy clients needs. The hardest part of my job would be having tolerance for different characters and having the patience to take blame even when you're not wrong, because the "client is always right". One thing I enjoy most about my job is making clients happy, with the type of service I provide, because if the client is happy I am happy.

Pros

Gifts for certain occasions, e.g christmas
