Standard Bank Reviews


Progressive culture

I thoroughly enjoy the culture at Standard Bank. They are very progressive in many ways, working from home policy. I’ve been involved in many interesting projects and have had many great travel opportunities through work. Standard Bank takes very good care of staff when travelling Only negative is that there is no room for progression and growth within the bank if you are not in a certain designated race group.

Pros: Work from home and no micromanagement
Cons: No growth opportunities

The time I worked at the bank I learnt a lot

On a day to day the work load was alot as we were always short staff. Trying to reach your daily target was sometimes very difficult as you could never only focus on one job. I had a good relationship with the people I worked with. Good understanding and communication. I learnt how to manage a team and take control of a situation. The most challenging aspect of the job was when the systems would not work properly and you still have to reach your target for the day.

Pros: Exposure in the company
Cons: Short staff.

Good experience

Every day is extremely busy and on the go. Get on very well with team members and feels like home from home. I learnt and have experience in project management, which I obtained in my last three and a half years. I enjoy working with people and making sure that everything is done and up to date. No security in this position, as I am a contractor.

Pros: Experience in project manager and close to home.
Cons: Having a contract, does not guarantee your job.

Pros: opportunities to grow, information about the business are shared up to the lowest managerial level and subordinates.
Cons: in other regions there are silo's which can impede growth

Excellent Learning curve

It does not take care of the interest of the customer, sometimes it’s good to know exactly how your employees are feeling and the decisions they take, I feel like they dnt support us, especially wen it comes to stuff desciplines, they dnt give a fair chance to its employee, they let clients abuse their workers

Pros: Opprtunities they encouraged us to study
Cons: Long working hours

Good job i have gain vailable experience.

my work place is very wonderful place to be from the safety to the culture of the company everything is transparent they always promote good work relationships as we in most cases work as a team. i have the best co-workers that we are close in such a way that i confused them with my siblings. what i have learned is that unity is the best tool that can be used to achieve goals. what i have enjoy the most is the fact that we all both different from our background but when we at work we are equal and both given same treatment. thew most challenging aspect of the job is balancing between work and school as i was in a learnership but i manage to pass as i got the best mentors to help me.

Pros: good company to work for
Cons: normal working hours
