Absa Reviews


Banking experience especially for compliance

I am working normal day hours which is eight and overtime if requested to work so. our working relationship is very nice because we were working as a team, we were assisting each other as a team. I gained more experience in Kyc, remediation and got a light on what exactly money laundering means, what are the peps and the legal documents which are needed to be uploaded on bank's systems. I have also gained an experience on Research. I enjoyed much of client data capturing and reviewing their documents. The most challenge is when we requests documents from the clients and they delayed to reach us.

Pros: Working smarter brings a quality job
Cons: Working under pressure disturbs good quality, so is much better to finish job in time to avoid pressure

Great Company

I'm an early and most of my colleagues starts work early which gives us time to brainstorm the team's challenges. I enjoy the company of the team members we treat each as equal, respect each other and we share our personal experiences. I have learned that sharing is caring because best advises and opinions comes from sharing. I enjoy seeing prosperity and quality results in my undertaken tasks The most challenging aspect is time and unclear requirements from the users and/or stakeholders as well as the red-tapes.

Pros: Great opportunity for career advancement
Cons: Traffic in the CBD especially end of the month.

Learnt a lot about working with people especially handling conflicts .

A typical work day is calling clients to get them to rectify their cheque based overdrawn account and thereafter submit a report on the task. The time frame of the task is between 08:00 am till 10:00. The the sanctioner have comments about your report its returned for re-work dead line before 15h00. Ad hoc requests such as request bank codes, increases in credit limits also forms part. The role is risk based and naturally there is conflict between sales and credit.So at times this puts stain on the relationship . I have learnt that managing expectation is key in any working relationship . Its important to establish common objectives I enjoyed learning new things the most and working on new credit based applications Systems issues , non responsive customers , processes and red tape .

Pros: Learnings
Cons: Gets very adminstrative with all reports going back and forth

Great working environment with support from bottom up and vice versa

Working with Absa has groomed me into a better and more professional engineer than i was a few years ago. the environment is work friendly and the people are well supportive. i have learnt how to work on a team and understand the importance that each role player plays withing a project. i enjoy doing projects where i am less supervised or with no supervision at all, this gives me room for thinking and making decisions based on the observations and customer needs.

Pros: As per the structure, there is room for growth and promotions within the department.
Cons: Long working hours,

Your review is not to sell yourself or give your job description (your CV does that)! Rather, give an accurate picture of what it's like to work at your company. Include things like: - A typical work day - Your relationship with co-workers - What you have learnt - What you enjoy most - The most challenging aspects of the job

Pros: Many opportunities
Cons: long hours

I would like to work in corporate, and to be given the chance to grow.

Engen is a corporate company that requires the best and highest quality from all staff regarding the roles they play in their space. i personally find that the environment enhances your personal growth and allows for you to want to push even harder, regardless your job title as it is important to be happy in your environment. i have learnt and grown from where i first started and that is what i am looking for in my next job. i would like an opportunity to prove myself in my next job.

Pros: the salary was great.
Cons: night shift was not something i looked forward to but i never complained.
