I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Strong background and history. Strong balance sheet.

Cons

Very laid back and burocratic. Not prone to take up big initiatives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to be proactive and agile. Its a great place with lot of potential but a lot of time and resources are being wasted with not much getting done.

    Current Employee - Vice-President in New York, NY

    I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large corporation with large corporate benefits...vacation, medical, dental, 401K, etc... however, their matching contributions are less than other companies I have worked for. They display "some" loyalty to employees with generous severence, but overall objective is to make more and more at all costs!

    Cons

    Can conduct themselves a bit ruthlessly. Extreme restrictions and monitoring of all electronic communication. Does not maintain current software/hardware levels for business transactions. Again, "continually" updating benefit and compensation structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop setting unrealistic objectives. Level off as a mature company with consistent, growth and maturation in business entities.

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

    Former Employee - Analyst  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Analyst in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    easy-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)

    Cons

    overly 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 ManagementAdvice

    focus 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
