Working conditions were fine the only problem was management didn't take into consideration the needs of staff

I enjoyed my work very much but I decided to resign because having accumulated the experience most responsibilities were taken by head office and the department was turned into sales stricly at Standard Bank

Pros

Sometimes month end we only took 15minutes

Cons

We worked long hours and we were paid when we are over 48 hours a month

Productive

typical day at work is more administrative, customer queries assisting other portfolios and managing my own job. work in team with my co workers and assisting each other. Hardest part is when every one expects something at the same time but manageable. I love working with my clients and solving and finding resulotions

Productive and allows creativity

This is where it was possible to come up with your ideas to grow the business without them just being shot down without being tested first. Management understood that running your own business means being accountable for the pros and cons of it so I am the first contact in all the dealings from the provincial office. There was nothing hard as all the challenges did not become obstacles in my career and I have learnt to change what I can and what I cannot change. My passion has always been grooming and allowing people to grow and for them to become.

Pros

Creativity allowed

Best company to work for with levels of integrity

Best company to work for, high team spirit, believe and practice its values Learnt to be proactive and a avoid mishaps. Dealing with irate customers makes you feel in charge of the situation Open communication channels and good team work Having to figure out some of the things yourself, dealing with a query you've never come across before. When you are considered a champ because you understand a certain area of your job and you have to take the rest of the team through.

Pros

free T-shirts, health assessments, lunches and other promotional items

Cons

short lunch breacks on monthends
