productive and sti,ulating workplace

A very dynamic, stimulating and productive workplace. Unfortunately my time at Standard Chartered Bank was during the onset of the economic meltdown in Zimbabwe. This period affected the bank's perfomance which reflected in poor wages.

Work at SCB

Nice place to work, too corporate for me. Learnt a lot about Financial banking, crime and compliance training. Great team, but people leave.Didn't enjoy the international aspect of work and trying to work into every timezone to deal with all stakeholders.

International Bank

A typical day at work included implementation, training and support of the online banking portal as well as coordinating the resolution of client queries. I've been exposed the S2B online payments platform used by both local and global corporates for the processing of their financial transactions. I was responsible for managing my portfolio of clients in servicing their requests and providing the appropriate solution as per their business need. Workplace culture not suited to the South African Market. Having to interact and deal with colleagues situated on a different continent made it extremely difficult in query resolution as the language barrier proved to be a major hurdle to overcome. Client interaction, training and support was the most enjoyable part of the job that I have experienced.

Pros

Good Benefits

Cons

Flawed work streams and procesess

The best employer I have ever come across

SCB felt like my home. The teams are collaborative. Everyone looks out for each other. You are never left in the lurch. The Bank looks after their staff & the management style at SCB is one that definitely allows for growth & encourages everyone to go over & beyond their call of duty.

Pros

Bonus pools

Cons

structure can be a bit complex

Good

Good. There was too much office politics. There wasn't much meritocracy across board. Most roles are given to cronies and there is a lot of toe-licking.

Good company to work for. I've learned a lot about the banking sector and how each department links to the next. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people
