Job Culture
Standard bank is very good company to work for, if it wasn't a retrench or restructure excise I'll still be working for the bank, we had some fun moments for example each branch will have their team building maybe twice or once a year, just to relax and to know other colleagues woutside the working environment. I really miss working with such people and I'm still unemployed looking for a job
Pros
Team building
Cons
Reaching sales targets

Standard bank culture and policies guides all staff members to behave inside and outside working environment. Hiring strategy is questionable and not consider the qualifications staff members obtained or achieved.

This company has a culture of favoritism even if you working hard you will not be recognised if you don't know the right people, it's stressful as they no longer focus on the customers and customer service but are more worried about sales
Pros
Staff rates on loans
Cons
No growth
