Am who I am because of this company. When I had financial problems, they were there with me until I manage to sort my financial affairs. Currently I have two properties of which one is paid up and another one is bonded just recently. They even paid for my studies when I resign early last year, without paying it(study loan) back and they even took me back late last year.

During thirty years of loyal service the time has come to leave. The uncertain and whim driven leadership at Director level is killing a once proud and efficient organisation. From the highs of being a market and service leader in the 90's to becoming a struggling and wavering entity is troubling. A culture of work life balance is only words and disperses as soon as it is challenged or attempted to be placed into practice.

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.
