Standard Bank is a great company to work for. On top they really do care about the staff. In the branches they have their own culture and rules, which can be abit stressfull on daily work completions.

Working at Standard Bank has grown me as an individual. Dealing with Executives who have certain standards of doing things and learning how to deal with them has grown me an individual. A fast-paced environment where change constantly takes place and you have to adapt fast. A typical day at work is never the same as each day presents a different challenge. But ultimately, i am passionate about what i do and i love the energy and challenges that came my way.

Best part of my job is that I get to build relationships with various people across the company. The experience I have gained in the financial environment gives me the opportunity to grow myself.

Started off as an amazing company to work for. In recent years however the bank has lost its culture of caring about its customers and staff. The only thing that matters is making money/ profit at all costs.

Standard Bank is a great company to work for. The salary & benefits are very decent. Learn a lot about finances & business. Lots of diversity in the workplace. As long as you follow procedures and work hard you will be rewarded.

Favouritism is the only thing that i don't like. There's an accident that happened when i was there. The way that they treat me was not acceptable they have all the proof that i was innocent but the way i saw things they protect the person who did this. I'm still saying this I WAS INNOCENT. Favouritism is very high in standard bank sorry to say this.
