Very Sydney-centric culture, not global or forward thinking despite the tagline.

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

Pros

Very smart people with strong work ethic.

Cons

Too much outsourcing and very little autonomy given to the regions. One-size fits all approach across the regions, which doesn't work for a global firm. When someone leaves, rather than replace them, they make the rest of the team do more with less. No raises for years and nominal bonuses. WAY behind on technology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Staff up and take a more global view. One size does not fit all. Allow the regions to operate in a manner that makes sense for their region and make decisions without everything having to be approved by Sydney. Improve technology.

    Pros

    Salary is competitive but on a low scale. The executives I support are appreciative and down to earth.

    Cons

    Growth potential for Executive Assistant's isn't a priority. Technology needs to be more of a priority,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise them to value the Executive Assistants who go above and beyond in their reviews either monetarily or providing them with skill building classes.
