Good company that risks however becoming too focused on cost saves and outsourcing, ahead of local staff value.

Pros

Good work environment if you are lucky enough to be in one of the better teams. A lot of good people work and manage teams at NAB, but some senior management can tend to be more focused on their own patch and how to best sell their own performance to achieve their bonus rather than a true focus on what is best for the organisation holistically.

Cons

Too focused on form (meetings / presentations / internal surveys) than substance (people actually doing their job). Staff are often rewarded more for what and how well they say what they do, rather than what they actually do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get back to the basics of sound cost management, optimising current and new revenue streams and valuing staff loyalty and commitment over a headcount saving.

    Pros

    The people that you worked with made the role bearable, nice new offices in the CBD.

    Cons

    No support, lack of training, increasing number of disgruntle staff, managements mandate of doing more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you lead by fear and intimidation it is usually the best talent that leaves first.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment and can be extremely rewarding when you are looking to learn a lot
    Lots of opportunities provided with training, learning new tasks and taking on more responsibility
    Networking opportunities are good

    Cons

    Aggressive culture-management was extremely unpredictable and felt like they watched you like a hawk
    I have known many colleagues who get verbally abused quite regularly

    Internal promotion is not supported heavily

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat your employees with respect and change the way the bank is seen; it needs to have a better vision for the future because atm it is still losing out to the other top 3 banks
