I have been working at Macquarie Group as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Good, hard working people
Free Toast!
Nice offices and locations

Cons

Very long hours.
Lots of bureaucracy and politics. People are always pushed to do more even though they are already working harder than the majority of people in other organisations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make people work smarter, not longer. Reduce the excessive number of processes.

    I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - A few nice employees to work alongside
    - Knowledge gained with the variety of processes in bettering the business is great
    - The name/brand Macquarie has created for itself; gives others a good impression for working here

    Cons

    - consultants, senior consultants, AD's, DD's ED's -they all think they are important, so be prepared to work over your means!
    - If you are not liked by the right people your hard efforts will not count, they will just let you go..
    - Expected to work long hours, but don't expect to be rewarded.
    - A lot of double handling, some processes and systems used are ridiculous
    - Expect to do silly requests and have large amount of work offloaded
    - No mentorship, no guidance when you initially start employment, very minimal training & be prepared to be snapped at if you as a question during your first months at Macquarie.
    - High Ego's and arrogant people, a lot of people earning good money walk with their nose up in the air.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Don't rate your staff,
    - focus on the little things as well as the big,
    - do not compare depending on their hierarchy; just like how you believe you have a place in this company and play a part in your role, others below you such as assistants also contibute and feel the same way
    - Get to know your new employees and make them feel welcome
    - understand that assistants too want to excel and joined the company for a reason other than work hard in managing your diaries.
