Does United Bank for Africa offer life insurance?

Pros

A start up job to boost your Cv

Cons

Poor staffing conditions. They make you work your life out with no reward or appreciation whatsoever. No value for staff life, no health care insurance. Very stiff working conditions, with crude and porous systems. The DSE scheme is modern day job slavery where you work like an elephant, and eat like an ant. No opportunity for career growth or clear career path. They promise you heaven and earth during your job interviews, when you get the job, everything is swept under the carpet. The toxicity in the work space is second to non, as the core staff continually treat you like trash and expect you to worship the ground They work on simply bcz They got an opportunity you're robbed of. Yes I said robbed because the dses and rms (core staff) have basically thesame job functions, yet they are underpaid and still expect both staff to work at thesame pace (laughable) One advice, scrap the use of outsourced staff, employ people directly, and pay them what they are worth, only then you'll get full workforce value. Until then, bye.

Advice to Management

The dse scheme is beneficial to your organisation, instead of demotivating them by slashing their salaries, encourage them by promoting them, by rewards, by professional trainings. Stop using people's children. 90% of them are graduates, they have families, they deserve better. Your policies are too stringent!

No value for staff life, no health care insurance.

Pros

Range of opportunities: Working with UBA Plc as a big bank doesn’t have to mean working as a teller behind the counter, it could mean working in head office on marketing, HR or in any number of other roles. Progression: as banking organisations are so large, there is always the chance to progress through the organisation into other roles. Jobs are often advertised internally first, so once you’re into an organisation you will be the first to know about vacancies. Training: United Bank for Africa is well known for having well-trained staff so whatever your job role, you’ll be given the skills you need to do the job and many of these skills can be transferred to other industries should you decide to move on. Benefits and salary: banking salaries are competitive and large bank employers often offer excellent additional benefits such as private healthcare and discounts with large retail chains. Bank employees are also often able to get discounts on mortgages, loans and credit cards from their employer after a set period. Prestige: banking is seen as a desirable and prestigious career and is felt to be more secure than other sectors such as retail or fashion

Cons

Retail banking has been transformed over the past decade with digital technology. This pace of change isn’t going to slow, and it’s probably not the career for you if you like things to be calm and stable.
