Good employer, poor HR
Pretty good company with an enthusiastic culture. Young CEO who has a great vision for the future. A good bank to work for. HR ruined a large part of the experience.
Tax Specialist | South Africa | 14 May 2019
Work Hard - Play hard
In the External Tax Reporting department, we are strong believers that we need to work hard to meet deadlines, but we also believe in playing hard as well, by going on exciting team builds etc. The hardest part of my job is the SARS submissions that our deadlines are very short. The most enjoyable part of my day is mixing with my team members, and been kept busy that your day goes by very quickly
ProsTeam Functions
ConsFlexible hours

Poor leaders who are insecure at work
Perform well you will not receive reward unless you are part of circle that clings and holds onto each other. Find serious problems in the business you will be punished perhaps because management are involved in unethical behavior. Be careful where you work.
Project Administrator | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 10 Dec 2017
This was a high project driven position, long hours and tight deadline. Management is still very male dominant. Training and Development in good if you are committed.
ProsSystems Efficient
ConsLong Hours
