    Pros

    Flat-ish structure
    Collegial culture
    Growth
    Some interesting work that is unique to the firm, due to the "Macquarie Model"

    Cons

    Pays below market (was the case, not sure if it has improved)
    Australia-centric decision making
    Australian senior executives are not always best suited for senior roles outside of Australia

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Pay is (or at least was) severely below the quality of people it expects to attract. Fix it.
    2) Stop guaranteeing bonuses to senior people who do not produce.
    3) Stop skimping juniors' salaries to subsidize unjustifiably bloated salaries of employees referred to in #2, and Australian MDs / Senior MDs.
    4) If junior employees do not have influence over revenue, do not determine their bonus (mostly) based on business unit revenue.
    5) Related to #1 and #3, stop exporting Australian executives that know nothing about international markets, and have zero relationships outside of Australia, to lead international business units. (I believe they are working or have worked to fix this somewhat)
