    Great opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA very collaborative environment ensures you have a voice. AMPCI has a broad range of investment capabilities which creates opportunities to make a move sideways and gain experience in many areas. Majority of people really care about the company they work for.

    ConsThere is a lot of talk about the importance of the client but this does not always come through in the actions of some senior managers. People need to be held more accountable for their actions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo much information is kept behind close doors or divulged too late. Be more open with employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Too much restructuring after initial restructuring.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMost colleagues are collegiate and focus on best business outcomes. Genuine interest for clients goals. Good office location.

    ConsBureaucratic and poor strategy, big ambitions poor execution, global growth has fallen well short of targets. Constant restructuring and cost reductions which is unsettling for those being retained.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to understand international markets consultants and follow through with growth strategies.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    AMP Capital

    Client Account Management (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsBenefits that are very little to do with base salary or bonuses

    Cons- Pay is lower than market offer
    - Overblown expenses budgets on projects that go nowhere e.g. ROEE

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior mgmt need to be more "open and transparent" as they love to preach but fail to abide.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Good Management team

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Strong expertise in their field of work
    - Management team are friendly
    - multinational corporation that allows for international exposure - fast learning process

    Cons- may have some red tape
    - very aussie-focused

    Hence all of the above may have made AMP capital slow to adapt to changes with the modern financial industry

     

    Great people, great life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood working environment, very welcoming team, fast learning process, good reputation, nice building centrally located, management was very approachable and open to give positive feedback for future positions.

    ConsPerhaps the company is a bit too much Aussie-focused. Maybe as a consequence of this, it is slower in adapting to change in comparison to its competitors. With hindsight, it's probably a company one would want to end up at, rather than begin at.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPush for making it a more dynamic company.

    Friendly culture, slow to move with the times

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsFriendly, 'nice' respectful culture, strong well-known corporate brand, nice well-located offices. Mentoring opportunities for talented staff.

    ConsSlow to innovate, and behind many competitors in terms of systems and practices. Pays below market, very hard to get salary increases once inside, so loses many top performers for this reason. Conservatism holds the company back as does constant restructuring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview retention strategies for high performing staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Challenging and educational but not very strategic

    (Former Employee) North Sydney (Australia)

    ProsAMP have a wide range of investment styles and large scale. They are pretty entrepreneurial and willing to attempt some new ventures. With their new systems they also have some capability to implement modern trading methods. Their front office also has some clever people

    ConsAMP is a FUM aggregator. Their front office was poorly organised and their main game was to hang onto as much FUM as possible. Their major systems renewal project was also wasteful and poorly run, with sub-par results for the money spent. It was difficult to innovate and achieve good results there

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome more honest with yourselves and review the effectiveness of your middle management

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
