Are you thinking malice on the part of a disgruntled ex-IT ABSA employee?

Not at all most of those who are going have been sitting at home for the past three months. I would guess that the management, devolopment and running of the new system was farmed (tendered) out and this break down might well be partially as a result?

Not just IT, although they were some of the first to be shown the door, ALL staff are affected, and its still continueing,they're doint it in stages.

Irony though about the IT staff - they've got around 40+ odd vacancies now for Analysts and Developers.... and no experienced people want to work for them, so the positions are being filled with junior people... I'm sitting back and just watching the developments, its quite interesting.

I attribute it to Karma. She's a b*tch ;D

Survey: ABSA CEO Maria Ramos rated among business leaders with the worst reputations, scoring lowest in ethical behaviour.

I saw that.... my silence on the subject indicates my opinion.

Well, as you probably know, Barclays is currently at the centre of a scandal and ABSA’s association with Barclays doesn’t help much. The survey was conducted before the Barclays scandal emerged, so one might wonder what Ramos’ rating would be now, given that people, unless expressly cautioned not to do so, habitually adopt a guilt-by-association stance on such matters. Even so, it would be a bit of an imaginative stretch to believe that Ramos’ silence on the issue was entirely due to her being oblivious of Barclays’ inter-bank lending rate manipulation shenanigans, and hence her being slated seems deserved on this point alone.
