Competitive and interesting

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The work day was always different, new challenges, new thinking, the environment and role meant that every day was interesting. The role involved a lot of travel which long term isn’t sustainable.

Great salary and benefits

Management very professional, you more of a number than a person. Just do your work and go home don't bother making friends or expecting management to show compassion if you have personal issues that you need to deal with.

Pros

Amazing salary and benefits

Cons

Long hours rotational shifts

Productive, fun and a competitive place to work in.

Best place to work at. It was competitive yet fun and interesting as you meet different customers from all walks of life. Its imperative to remain objective and unbiased with all your employees and customers. The most enjoyable part was when we reached our monthly targets or no teller differences. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for an upbeat, challenging and competitive place to work at.

Pros

Bonuses

Cons

Long unpaid hours

Productive and fun workplace

Best 4 years. Great company benefits. Awesome renumeration. Good working and fun balance. Recognition is given. Growth is always encourage. Managers just need to always give other consultants a chance, not promote based on friendship and nepotism.

Great place to start your career

Great place overall, you learn a lot, problem is that your scope of work was only limited to the department you are working in because every department seems to work in silos. Management is great, executives generally have an open door policy and generally listens to our inputs, middle management can be quite harsh depending on where you work. The culture is also heavily dependent on where you work, some departments are really great while some are incredibly cold - honestly it is a hit or miss here. The environment is very competitive, they set very ambitious and impossible targets and employees work overtime (unpaid) just to keep up with the amount of work. Work and pay is also very disproportional, I do think they need to reassess their pay grades and job descriptions.The best part of working here is that you work on amazing projects that have a massive impact on the country and the financial system, also, they give you a place to learn various skills and develop yourself.

A lot of pressure but a fun working environment

A lot of pressure but a fun working environment.You will work extended hours because theres just a lot of work to-do. The normal 9-5 is not enough to cover everything you need to get done.

Stressful more demanding especially in sales

More stressful environment to much pressure from the management. When it comes to growth opportunities are scarce, to much pressure to deliver sales daily.

Pros

Medical aid, pension benifits

Cons

Long hours, off once in 5 weeks in Surturday, work Monday to Surturday.

The environment is quiet hostile and fast paced.

It's a nice place to grow especially for an I.T professional. It is very competitive and also hostile. Internal politics are rife. The company is quiet ahead of its competitors in terms of technology.

Pros

Exposure to new technologies.

Cons

Hostile environment.
