Established banking career

Absa bank has given me an excellent environment to learn and grow. Support is amazing from senior management and open communication not limited to one department but across spectrum. My experience working in difference areas of the business have expose me to new opportunities to explore and made me aware of my strength and weaknesses. I enjoy leading teams and drive them to be high performers. I also like to ensure that while doing so, there are set of beliefs and values that are agreed on and upheld to make sure that the environment is pleasant for all to work in.

Pros: Opportunity to grow and impart knowlegde
Cons: Long working hours

Ensure that the branch is cost-effective and profitable.

Team player. Got a lot of recognition from colleagues and my staff. Sales and service oriented. I am happy to see customers happy all the time. There is pressure to provide excellent service and meet sales target ant the same time. I learnt to be professional all the time and keep it simply. Listening before you answer is a skill I learn from my experience with customers. When you are shortstaff and the branch is busy and customers start to complain is challenging and you need to act with what you have at your disposal.

Pros: Huge chances of growing within the industry
Cons: Flexible because on busy days you finish late all the time

Excellent learning curve

Great company to work for, enjoyed the training workshops. Only downside was that I worked their for 4 years as a fixed term contractor. Salary is reasonable, but management was the problem for me. Team leaders were at times unprofessional and favoured certain people.

Pros: Salary
Cons: Poor management
