Standard Bank Reviews


I have knowledge in FM, Engineering, OHS, Environmental, Risk, Governance and compliance.

I am working in the Data Centres in Standard Bank. My typical work day starts early morning whilst there is little movement in the office, during this time I catch up with e mails and plan my day. I maintain good relationships with all people at all times to allow a productive working environment. I have learned to respect, trust and to be honest with all people in the organisation, as this will ensure that people will cooperate with you on all levels. I enjoy finishing a quality project in time. The most challenging scenario is to engage with staff in Africa regions in terms of on time delivery.

Pros: I engage with people in various areas of the orginisation i.e. SME’s In their field and gain a lot of experience across the business.
Cons: None

Brilli learning experience

I started out at Standard bank as a learner, there I learnt a lot about delivering outcomes timeously and putting customers fist. I learnt that teamwork is very important in a successful business, and in delivering company goals. I enjoyed receiving appreciation from dealers and other stakeholders aftre delivering good service. Challenges would mostly come when outcomes are not given at expected time due to external factors that were beyond our control. Dissatisfied clients are not good for business.

Pros: Great learning curve
Cons: Gossiping and back stabing

Excellent learning curve

I am a consistent, hard working and highly motivated person. I have over 20 years experience in the financial services sector and have extensive experience in investment administration. I left my job of 21 years at Momentum for Standard Bank for personal growth. I thought the grass was greener on the other side. But it was not the case. I left Standard Bank after 1 year because of the working conditions. I didn’t feel valued as an employee, no work/life balance, staff were unhappy. I took a few months sabbatical and i’m currently seeking employment again. I’m looking for a career change in the finance sector and i’m willing to downgrade/pay cut.

Pros: Salary was great
Cons: No work/life balance
