Standard Bank Employee Review
productive work place
Arranging of all meetings between the client and the financial adviser, coordination of product events, singing up of client documents and policies, seeing and assisting clients when the FA is out, managing the FAs dairy and making all necessary transport arrangements. Following up on all client files, policies and general banking, doing all sorts of admin that was required by the management of SBFC, making sure that all paper work is up to date and FICA complaint

Team Catch Up
Was employed at Standard Bank for close to 5 years. Survived 3 restructures / sec 189 processes. Yes the bank needs to move with the times and hence structure changes etc but very little support from the management once you are served with a sec 189 letter. Whilst working for SBSA applied for more than 100 internal vacancies with no success. Very poor career development and upskilling. When there is restructures and you don't have the skills to fit in, its almost like its your fault. Yet as an organisation they did not take the initiative to provide you with the training and skills required for the "jobs of the future"
Good Remuneration and Benefits
Restructuring and Uncertainty
The bonus is GREAT. The pecks are great. The working hours are flexible if you are not client facing, work from home is allowed which is great for work life balance.
Bonus, reduced interest rates, work life balance is great. Some departments encourage work from home.
The structure is too layered.
