Working at absa is an excellent place to learn and grow.

For the past 12 months I have been working in an Agile Scrum Team where my core skill has also been that of developer. Collaborating with Product Owners and other stakeholders. Working in an environment doing maintenance and new development in a system using a mixture of JCL, Easytrieve and Hogan COBOL Languages for the RBB Card division In Absa (Issuing team, back-end mainframe), where I was based. Emphasis was placed on, during testing, documenting that every line of code was tested. Part of the testing process was to prepare data and test data for 'testing unit' where a second developer followed the same test plan as the original developer, but overall look for bugs and test every part to ensure valid code going into system, in an effort to enhance quality control. I have found this to be critical in to understanding how we as a team are progressing with our Sprint Goal as well as understand and mitigate what is standing in our way of not achieving that Goal.

Pros: big on learning and innovation.
Cons: none

Excellent

I was employed by Absa bank 10-15years ago, I resign because I wanted to start my own company, but now my company is not doing well. So am looking for employment, my duties at Absa bank where Marketing, open the new account, preparing will for clients, preparing investment documents, and writing policy's for clients, every morning I use to go to the tellers to fetch the leads for the day, handle diary, answering phone, processing claims for clients, and admin. It was a happy and exciting environment we where working hand in hand with my core worker's. I learn how to communicate with people and respect one another. When we meet our target, the challenging expects was to meet deadline and load the information on the system as quickly as you can.

Pros: Yes ended
Cons: 8h to 16h
