ProsNear-Limitless opportunity and freedom to pursue professional goals and drive towards success; extremely flat management structure enabling direct contact with senior leadership; open and honest feedback; openminded views towards new ideas that rewards success and challenges you to exceed your own professional comfort envelope.

ConsLack of structure and formalization sometimes appears to engender lax standards; some unclear goals require personal research in order to determine true corporate strategy; communication open and honest but not always as proactive as one might like.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that for new employees, unaccustomed to Macquarie's culture, that the openness and freedom is both a blessing and a challenge. Strive to provide more clarity around goals and objectives for new employees, to provide a better balance of guidance and support, and freedom.

    I have been working at Macquarie Group


    Pros: The firm lives up to its 'innovative' reputation, and offers a very flat heirarchy. The people are smart… Cons: Macquarie's lack of structure has started to create some problems, as it seeks to 'wrestle with giants' in the IB industry. Now… Advice to Senior Management: Senior leadership needs to provide some further strategic direction - front line business people can develop good ideas… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
