    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

    A very collegiate organisation, everyone is on the same page in terms of direction and their role in getting there.
    Executives are aligned which means minimal politics.
    Intelligent employees that support collaboration and learning from one another, and global networks.
    Great working location and open plan environment, work life balance is recognised as an important motivator.

    Cons

    Internal promotions volumes could be improved, there are a lot of contract staff there which limits progression.
    Often cost consciousness outweighs smarter decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-balance permanent staff to contractor ratios.
    Agility aligned to Customer centricity mean big organisational and culture changes, stick to the course and leverage your assets more (your people) rather than large and expensive consulting firms.

    I worked at AMP Limited full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Generally a lot of perks with funded charity work, gym onsite (Sydney) a good culture. A lot of people had worked at AMP for years and that provided learning about the industry in order to develop.

    A nice company to work for in general, that seeks to look after their staff.

    Cons

    Long hours for some and not for others. The main reason for my move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really

    Pros

    Learning and Development opportunities, great offices, nice teams and strong brand

    Cons

    There was a huge disparity among the performance of employees. Top performances were not highly rewarded as average employees seemed to enjoy the same recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at AMP Limited as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture. You got to work with some folks that know their stuff. Before the IT contractor (and now permanent) cull, projects were flourishing and there was a lot of work about. Always celebrated project success, which was nice.

    Cons

    You had to work hard, and sometimes long hours. There were many that seemed to get away with doing the absolute minimum. It's was heavy on your calendar for meeting invites, but that also had a lot to do with the role / project you were involved in. Head of Technology tended to take a lot of credit for the hard work of their subordinates, and used it for their own progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actively share the credit of success with the wider team, rather than just saying it once a month at team drinks.
