    I have been working at Westpac Banking full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the area you work in, there's lots of opportunity to get exposure to a range of products and functions across the bank. Reasonable work life balance. The maternity and working arrangements are very generous if you're a younger woman starting a family.

    Cons

    As a few other people have mentioned, it can be ridiculously bureaucratic. Decision making is a long, protracted process, which seems to be an attempt at avoiding responsibility by mutualising everything. Information hoarding and "managing up" are common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give staff their autonomy, but make them accountable for their decisions.
