Standard Bank is a great place to work and it offers so much variety in terms of a career direction. Like it's slogan, however, keep on moving forward, this is something I would recommend any employee to do also.
Pros
Competitive salary, advancement and further educational opportunities.
Cons
It is only as good as the people it employs.

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.
