Current Employee - Intern - Equity Research in Mumbai (India)

I have been working at Macquarie Group as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The experience overall was good. Great learning place, and peers are available to help. Good spirit in the Equity Research dept, where I interned.

Cons

Some ego's here and there, but typical of any investment bank to have these. Not doing well in current economic climate.

    Former Employee - Senior Front-Office Developer (FICC/Commodities) in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collagues are very smart, dedicated and social people. We mostly tried to pull together as a team.
    Working environment on the trading floor was challenging but very stimulating.
    I learnt a lot there about trading systems, risk systems and trading in general.
    Total compensation was competitive, at least at the time.

    Cons

    Management is quite clueless about making life easier for the developers, who put in very long hours (without much recognition) in order to fix recurrent problems that could be permanently dealt with.
    The say yes to business too often, however unrealistic the business request is.
    They also have no vision about how to evolve the trading/risk system and how to grow the team sustainably.
    The lack of communication between management and employees about key initiatives or even people who have just been fired and left the office is surprising, worse than other places in the city of London.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to nurture your team and plan ahead in terms of development.
    Learn to communicate with the team properly - you are a big company and a big department now, not a tiny operation.
