Was employed at Standard Bank for close to 5 years. Survived 3 restructures / sec 189 processes. Yes the bank needs to move with the times and hence structure changes etc but very little support from the management once you are served with a sec 189 letter. Whilst working for SBSA applied for more than 100 internal vacancies with no success. Very poor career development and upskilling. When there is restructures and you don't have the skills to fit in, its almost like its your fault. Yet as an organisation they did not take the initiative to provide you with the training and skills required for the "jobs of the future"
Pros
Good Remuneration and Benefits
Cons
Restructuring and Uncertainty

A lot of restructuring coupled with chopping and changing of positions dented the reputation of the what used to be the best employer to the worst employer. No job security and stability.

They take care of their staff, the health and safety, building maintenance without compromising on the growth of the company. Lots of growth opportunities and learning that won't cost you a cent.

My time as an employee at SBSA was short but enjoyable. I began as a night shift collections agent in the SBSA Super Block call center in June 2006. After a short period, I was asked to attend the Team Leader training course, after completing the course I was encouraged to then apply for the night shift team leader position and was promoted within a year.
