I have been working at Commonwealth Bank of Australia full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Lots of opportunities within the organisation but need to be active in making them happen. It is also an exciting time to be working for an orgnanisation that has been recognised as a leading force in IT in the industry.

Cons

As with any mega-organiastion there is a lot of 'red tape'.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to probably work out a better and more equitable pay structure.

    I have been working at Commonwealth Bank of Australia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    stability, job opportunities, salary, financial perks

    Cons

    depends on the area/team you work for (which is the case anywhere) but similar to other reviews. Expect to work like a machine, not much recognition (unless your bringing in income), many job opportunities but comes down to politics (if your manager wants to let you go or if the hiring manager already has someone in mind), progression is slow (unless your in the inner circle of senior management), KPIs are set fairly high to the point of unachievable unless your a super employee, inflexible. seems like culture is ingrained at a early stage so when employees progress up the ranks the cycle continues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat staff like valued employees not commodities
