    Former Employee - Service Delivery Manager in Docklands (Australia)

    I worked at Australia and New Zealand Banking as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome offices in docklands.
    Access to good equipment that worked sometimes.
    Their 'hot desking' experiment was a failure.
    Some people are too over worked
    Pay is well above industry averages.

    Cons

    On boarding of new employees just didn't work.
    Getting support for any problems more hassle than it was worth, employees lived with problems.
    Too many contractors that don't have the long term investment in the company.
    Some people are too under worked.
    Many people are well over paid for what they do.
    No management engagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review what people do and what they are paid for the work. Don't trust managers to do the review of their staff though.

    I have been working at Australia and New Zealand Banking as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Some good people around;
    Building is nice (833 Collins);
    Great opportunities to improve things

    Cons

    Overly bureaucratic - complex, unnecessary processes make achieving change very hard
    Political and full of management speak - it's who you know and the buzz words you use, not what you get done;
    Little appreciation or understanding of technology - front line and back end systems are mostly ancient

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify processes;
    Challenge the conservative culture - reward honesty and achievement over people that just talk;
    Invest in technology and take considered risks
