Energetic and Vibrant workplace
There is no such thing as a typical day at work. You will always go above and beyond your job description and there is always an opportunity to learn. You will generally learn how to do the job, on the job.

The type of clients that you will deal with are the top tier in South African and thus, an extremely high touch, efficient service delivery is required.


The culture is incredibly vibrant, energetic and autonomous.

Satisfied ex employee
Lot of social events scheduled throughout the year. Allowed to dress casual and work from home (some days). Friendly and helpful staff. Lots of red tape.

Foward looking, interesting culture
At my time at Investec Bank we were undergoing a transformation from the Apartheid years in South Africa into a new era, I was tasked with introducing Foreign-based accounts into the equity desk and also opening up various African Markets.

They could do better...
They've positioned themselves as one of the best employers and I can honestly attribute this to the culture and the people. They don't pay well at all

Great Culture
Great place to work with a fun culture. Would recommend it to anyone just starting out their career. However, career opportunities may be slightly limited due to niche nature of the organisation.

The culture and people are amazing.
A Typical day starts by catching up with friends, followed by a comfortable working environment. This enables one to be productive, and strive to achieve.

I learned a great deal as I was always pushed to my limits and encouraged to further my knowledge.

Rewarding, competitive, and challenging
Really rewarding, competitive, and challenging environment to work in. Employees are encouraged to treat their every day work as business owners contracted to the company. Great drive for performance. Constantly exposed to cutting edge technology, different development streams, varying infrastructure, and different businesses. Management are invested within their respective sectors that constantly drive for efficiency and performance with in-depth knowledge and experience in their respective fields. The hardest part of the job would be the environment created by each employee treating his/her job as their own business; every person has their own opinion and is not necessarily inclined to change or see others as partners to their endeavors. Really rewarding when applauded and acknowledged for contributions made.
Pros
Experience
Cons
Egos

Dynamic
I enjoyed the flexed time working at Investec. Being a dynamic, fast paced organisation, certain administrative tasks and documentation tends to be neglected. Hardest part is cutting through red tape. Most enjoyable was the people and team I worked with. Some of the management do not always act in the best interests of the organisation.
Pros
Work-Life balance
Cons
Certain Leadership styles

Job Culture
A lot of potential to grow as an individual in the business world.
Well organized vac work experience. Community is still not as diverse (racially) as it should be. A lot of hard work and dedication is required to advance there and you have to be a go-getter to survive because other students are also trying their best to be chosen because there are only a few positions.
Pros
Accommodation, flights and food provided.
Cons
Long hours which include working throughout dinner and after hours in the hotel.
