    Pros

    Work life balance, contribution leave

    Cons

    No career growth, appalling snr management who worry more about their survival than staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of strategic direction - new execs is a good step forward - focus rebuilding the level below the execs as many incumbent GM's aren't worth they money they are paid.

    I worked at Perpetual full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gives you a chance if you're hungry enough. Healthy progression albeit up to a point. Learning and shadowing opportunities are pretty good.

    Cons

    A tad fat around the edges. Can get bogged down in politics and bureaucracy especially at the senior level. Salary is subpar but sort of depends on the team and manager as well.
