Productive

As one enters the office building, the ambiance is business driven, one can't help but want to work and achieve set goals for the day in order to feel that contribution to the organisation's success is done. The culture is as such that one aspires to greater heights and therefore drives self-development through on job knowledge acquisition and formal educational training.

Pros

knowledge and experience hub

Cons

organisation is too big

Great work ethics and career opportunities

Standard Bank Group employs around 49,000 people and operates in 20 countries in Africa and 12 countries outside of Africa. Their business pillars are Personal & Business Banking, Corporate & Investment Bank, and Private Clients. Working for them gave me great exposure to their different operations and especially their strategy for Africa. They are focused on standardising and optimising processes globally and despite challenging days, this was one of my best jobs to date. I worked with highly qualified and enthusiastic co-workers who were willing to share their knowledge and provide support when required. I was given a role that stretched my skills and provided me with valuable insight into the operations of a finance projects based department. I had daily interaction with senior business users and were offered various opportunities for career progression.

Hectic and fluid environment that is very exciting

Typical corporate environment with meetings and corporate governance. I worked with a great team, including management that had to be close at all times to ensure we cope with a hectic and fluid environment. The changes in the evironment made life difficult at times we were dependent on other Projects and Releases as building blocks for what we need to do.It was a massive learning curve even for experienced Project Managers.

Pros

Huge learning curve that is exciting

Cons

Long hours
