    I worked at AMP Limited

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for, they believe in all the right things. The benefits are great and they are really flexible with adding family memebers.

    Cons

    The training is rough and the hours are long. It is hard to have a family and also work here.

    Pros

    I'm inspired by AMP's purpose "helping people own tomorrow". The brand, image and reputation are trusted and the culture is fantastic. Great people, meaningful work and great opportunities to grow and develop.

    Cons

    Collaboration across the different parts of the business could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Give AMP more profile in the market both for customers and prospective employees. It's a great company to work at and we don't do enough to promote it.

    Pros

    Great diverse range of jobs/career development Strong governance around risk Improving brand awareness and brand association

    Cons

    Bureaucratic when it comes to getting things done Senior leadership often works in very siloed manners resulting in many areas solving a problem independently and mutual of each other Stagnant development within a single role, reflected by low pay rises

    Advice to Management

    The most frustrating thing about working at AMP, strong alignment only seems to happen when in emergency/material situations that need direct and urgent action. For the majority of other things, alignment is poor, executive management is poor. There needs to be stronger collaboration across the company.

    Pros

    Good size to get your head around

    Cons

    Not as much development opportunities as larger banking organisations, especially as they move to a flatter structure.

    Pros

    Company is staffed by some wonderful people who have been there for a fair time. Most people are friendly and willing to help, with a drive to getting things done. Over the years have found senior management to be approachable and genuinely interested in the customer and providing good product and service to them.

    Cons

    In the early stages of a large cost cutting program which involves outsourcing. Worried this may eventuate at the cost of increased risk, and increased pressure on those left to review and rework what the outsourced areas contribute.

    Advice to Management

    Watch 'yes men'. If they are only telling you what you wanted to hear, why bother listening?

    Pros

    Loved working here. Open collaborative culture with strong leadership and vision. The open nature of the intranet encourages 360o dialogue and connects staff across all office locations.

    Cons

    Can be quite risk averse. Many meetings about meetings and "why?" asked a lot instead of "why not?"

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at AMP Limited full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They're big and well resourced

    Cons

    You virtually live week to week for 12months always in fear of failing a weekly assessment and getting sacked. They they sic their lawyers on to you to repay $10k. Many people have been exited before 3 months. I know one intake had 50% exited. These people are left unemployed, hounded for their debt and threatened with court action, their confidence is smashed and many are left with low self-esteem and confidence..... what a great tomorrow they'll have!

    Advice to Management

    Maybe if you stopped treating Horizons like a sacred cow, you'd start listening to the tonnes of feedback you've had over the years. Stop hiding behind your 'awards' as badges of honour. When you're the only program and you contribute sponsorship money, it's not hard to win an award. Too many great internal people have tried to give constructive feedback to you over the years and been cut to shreds for it - could be they were just trying to help you to stop ruining these poor people's lives

    Pros

    My immediate team and the wider business user teams are a pleasure to work with. Seamlessly supportive of flexible work arrangements.

    Cons

    The role could become stagnant - you have to personally push for personal career development.

    Advice to Management

    Would be more productive for management to actively support employee development plans.
