Overall Reviews at South African Reserve Bank
Review of SARB
a Very good place to work for. The Salary and perks for employees are above average. There are unlimited opportunity for employees to study further for free.
Regulatory driven and therefore rigid and bureaucratic.
Top management lack management skills and fear challenges. Prone to victimization on the highly qualified and experienced. Too much favours to those without necessary knowhow. Top management believe in tokenism and tend to favour those who always agree with everything. Staff disillusioned and uoung people eave sooner than expected. No transformation. Retention strategy failing because the implementation is not effective. Too much talking but fail to execute plans.
ConsRigidity and lack of management skills on top management.
National strategic installation
Design and implementation of the Solution Architecture for the National Cash Management System.
