    I worked at Commonwealth Bank of Australia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent people, nice office and social.

    Cons

    Management is in Sydney. Anyone that can make things happen sits half way around the world. As a result they have a distorted view of what it really takes to succeed in the U.S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a real investment in the U.S. Get rid of the dead weight and straighten out your compensation structure.

    Pros

    Inclusive, humble and people/leaders are very kind and they value their people, invest on their career and development. Nice working environment and nice team members.

    Cons

    Too conservative sometimes and the risk-taking action/decision is not popular, which may limit the business expansion.
