I worked at Standard Bank Group full-time (More than a year)
Easy to under KRA's with regular contract discussions.
Business casual dressing allowed all week long with a culture of first name basics all around the bank
Early closing hours and this is far better than all other banks in the local market.
Reasonable targets and budgets
Erosion of best international culture laid down by South Africans by the colored locals in charge who brought in the wrong abusive and master servant behaviors from the local banks.
HR business partners and the medical team are no good in resolving conflicts or other issues, the boss is the master and always right is the best you get from them
Advice to Management
Keep the culture as it is and let your word be your bond. Do talk and the walk too and stop the inflow of the local and primitive approach to issues and conflicts on the job
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Standard Bank Group in January 2013.
I had 2 interviews. One with the hiring manager and HR. And the other with the Head of Corporate and Investment banking.
Both technical and behavioral questions were asked. The questions were average and my responses were well received.
An offer was given a week after the interview process was completed.
