Sbsa is an excellent company to work for. The best bank to work for.
Am who I am because of this company. When I had financial problems, they were there with me until I manage to sort my financial affairs.
Currently I have two properties of which one is paid up and another one is bonded just recently.

They even paid for my studies when I resign early last year, without paying it(study loan) back and they even took me back late last year.

Very unorganized and wavering leadership
During thirty years of loyal service the time has come to leave. The uncertain and whim driven leadership at Director level is killing a once proud and efficient organisation. From the highs of being a market and service leader in the 90's to becoming a struggling and wavering entity is troubling. A culture of work life balance is only words and disperses as soon as it is challenged or attempted to be placed into practice.

Great place to work.
Standard Bank is a great place to work and it offers so much variety in terms of a career direction. Like it's slogan, however, keep on moving forward, this is something I would recommend any employee to do also.
Pros
Competitive salary, advancement and further educational opportunities.
Cons
It is only as good as the people it employs.

Standard Bank is a fun place to work for however they do not engage with staff personally before they can make decisions .
Standard Bank is a nice company to work for however staff engagement lacks .They do not care how you do your job as long as its done .They want results .They give you a lot work that can be done by 2 people and pay a minimal salary .
Pros

Cons
Staff engagement

a fun workplace
We had to work, and have fun at the workplace at the same time. that motivated the staff to perform to their utmost. every employee very focused because it was a fraud department , dealing with peoples money. that taught me to focus more and always e vigilant. best part of the job was calling the client to tell them that you managed to save their money and get it back into their accounts
