I started at standard bank with no experience but they took me in sent me to a training and I was paid during that time they made me permanent and then later on showed me how to work at enquiries there is growth if you are dedicated to your work and they push those who want to stay behind and their aim is to see everybody in better position than telling
Free lunches some times
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
This company has a culture of favoritism even if you working hard you will not be recognised if you don't know the right people, it's stressful as they no longer focus on the customers and customer service but are more worried about sales
Staff rates on loans
The department I was in was not nice to work in. The pressure was sometimes too much to handle. Managers only focused on stats and making the customer happy which ends up resulting in the bankers being neglected.
A lot of room for growth

Daily comms meetings ,self discipline and integrity in every interaction with clients ,the culture was relaxed yet professional .The job was not easy as soon as you understand processes and what's required of you .What I enjoyed the most was that everyday experience was different ,no day was the same as the previous one that made the work exciting daily
great working enviroment
little growth and long hours
My team leader never gave me a chance to spread my wings, my favouritism was at the core and the chain was way too long. I felt suffocated and clamped, to get a bonus you had to favoured. I worked for this company at a time of LMI 's where would go without pay for months but efforts were not recognized. I loved this company but after my experience I don't know
I don't remember getting anything for free
Your day starts as soon as you get in the office as you have to start to prepare for the masses. Make sure your workstation is clean and ready to assist clients. Check that you have all you stationary and equipment is working to avoid running around
