One of the best companies to work for. If you are serious about growth in your life then once you work here only good things can come of it. Also they have immense benefits in this day and age where people just do not get hired

Pros

Cons

Fast paced

Good Place to work but Always restructuring

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

Great place to work, innovative and constantly empowering its employees

The bonus is GREAT. The pecks are great. The working hours are flexible if you are not client facing, work from home is allowed which is great for work life balance.

Pros

Bonus, reduced interest rates, work life balance is great. Some departments encourage work from home.

Cons

The structure is too layered.

The bank takes good care of its employees in terms of staff benefits and annual reward. There is also a good work life balance and at Simmonds street you even get a gym onsite.

Great place to work.

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.

Standard Bank is a fun place to work for however they do not engage with staff personally before they can make decisions .

Standard Bank is a nice company to work for however staff engagement lacks .They do not care how you do your job as long as its done .They want results .They give you a lot work that can be done by 2 people and pay a minimal salary .

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Staff engagement
