I have been working at National Australia Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The work/life balance and overall culture is simply fantastic in NAB. This could be a result of having the elements embedded in the employees scorecard (KPI) but I believe the fantastic culture prevails across the org making it a great place to work. The work opportunities withiin NAB too is fantastic given the size or the org.

Cons

Given NAB is a financial institution, not a consulting organisation, the level of project and analysis competency and innovation across organisation will never be on par with top-tier consulting companies hence making it a great place to work but not necessarily the best place to learn the above-mentioned competencies unless one is fortunate and got to meet some great coaches over their time in NAB.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would say to invest a bit more on hiring good quality employees to help boost the competency levels within NAB.

    I worked at National Australia Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Those recruited to the nab under their usual recruiting policy seemed to be all very similar with their values and beliefs. Therefore, everyone was easy to get along with. You must be honest, talkative and be sales person interested in speaking and meeting people.

    Cons

    some cracks in the recruiting process which allows some - but very few - difficult staff to deal with. These people are friends one minute then only interested in advancing their career the next. Usually you will note that they are hiding flaws in their personality which lacks social intelligence. Working in retail as a women can be very difficult to get school holidays off....apply before all the others otherwise work in business bank

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to sell finance a member must be very social and know how to get on with others - should you see workers in the work place showing these behaviours keep encouraging them as they eventually will become your greatest asset.
