I have been working at Westpac Banking

Pros

Great benefits. My immediate boss is a very poor leader, but I actually think the company is trying to do something about him. (Always a challenge). Good working environment, excellent work/life balance. Communication (ignoring my own leader) seems pretty good all round.

Cons

Westpac is doing a great many large initiatives and have bitten off more than they can chew just at the moment. They are addressing this too which is good, but need to do it faster.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some stakes in the ground that are manageable and stick to them rather than try to pull off every possible feat to gain customer loyalty and market share. I like where you're going but if it isn't done properly, it'll do more damage than good.

    Pros

    Laid back culture- very easy to manage the work/life balance.
    Extremely collaborative environment. Colleagues look for opportunities to support one another to achieve goals rather than compete.

    Cons

    Limited to no accountability taken, therefore decisions take forever to be made. I am a strong believer in consultation, but I think its overly consultative.
    Mixed bag in terms of staff- some are hard working and bright, others are just not impressive.
    People move around so quickly, I do not know how anyone is effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate changes better. You lose good people when they are uncertain of their future.
