Overall Reviews at South African Reserve Bank

Senior Department Manager | South Africa | 04 Dec 2019
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.
Department Head | Pretoria, Gauteng | 13 Sep 2018
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.
ProsSubsidised lunches
ConsRigidity and lack of management skills on top management.
