friendly low-stress culture but growing too fast and very top-heavy

Analyst (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Macquarie Group full-time for more than a year

Proseasy-going people make the entire floor less stressful than other banks

senior mgmt make themselves very accessible

opportunity for rapid increase in responsibility (much faster than elsewhere)

Consoverly aggressive growth, esp lateral hires of senior ppl

compensation is simply not competitive for junior ppl

politics and bureaucracy very palpable

company's directors are in sydney and out of touch with the industry

Advice to Senior Managementfocus on improving existing businesses rather than growth for the sake of growth

hold employees to performance metrics more closely

develop and reward junior ppl instead of overpaying for senior ppl from other shops
