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
Pros
I don't remember getting anything for free
Cons
Rotten management

Working at Standard Bank is not a problem but their salary and your duties are very much different and the contract am having is more like a part time job since I work upto 5 hours a day and it minimizes my salary

It's not a bad company, I would work there again. The benefits are good even the salary is not bad at all. Just the management I had wouldn't reward us or make us feel valued. But apart the company itself in terms of benefits the best.

Excellent company to work, fast paced environment though. A lot of company benefits like reduced bank fees, reduced insurance premiums and low mortgage payments if one is a full time employee.

Working at Standard bank was fun and challenging. There are many positions that you can transfer to if available but you do not need to stick to 1 position.

Standard bank is a good company to work for because it is an environment where one can grow and be upskilled as there are also sessions allocated for multiskilling. There are also learning assessments in place for employees to get better opportunities.

Amazing I would jump at the opportunity to go back. No one micro manages you but everyone gives results every COB. Sadly my contract wasn't renewed as they were restructuring but I would go back instantly

There is a great culture at Standard Bank especially in the team I work with. We learn every day, weather its a new skill or something new about the business. Standard Bank provides learning opportunities through a learning and development intranet site. Allowing us to increase skills and knowledge all the time. Management can be very supportive at times, but also very dictatative. The hardest part of my job would be not having the proper support structure in place to enable us to go beyond the boundaries of the job description. I love that I am to make a difference our customers lives. They come to us as a last resort and it gives me the greatest satisfaction when I am able to retain and hear the customer say they are now happy.
Pros
Great experience, a wealth knowledge and relationships built with friends and collegues
