Macquarie Technology Group Reviews
Good senior team members and are always willing to help and assisting in your development. Team are the most reliable and enjoyable people to be around.
Unfortunately, There is a toxic work environment and alot of politics when it comes to this company. Staff are treated poorly with no respect as work place bullying is prevalent from the management team. You can forget about development and work life balance because the program is non existent and there is no training. You are expected to work with no benefits and no time off or over time. The leadership team are aware of the conditions and don't take any feedback or support their staff. They are completely incompetent and lack emotional intelligence. There is a high turn over rate for a reason and the salary is below standard, clearly some people shouldn't have power in cloud services BU.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Technology Group (Australia)
InterviewHUMILIATED AS A CANDIDATE. If you would like to learn more about how NOT to treat a candidate during an interview/selection process, then read on... Middle management job opportunity in the Telco Business Unit. 5-stage interview/selection process: 1. HR phone interview 2. Meeting with a higher level manager 3. Psychometric testing (abstract, numerical, verbal) 4. Interview with 2 higher level managers + a member from the team the role was in 5. Interview with a higher level manager and a senior manager. Took about 6 weeks and drained productivity from my current role. The first 4 interviews were fine, it appeared I got along well with higher level managers and team members, HR were also terrific with their communication. But, red flags started flying when I was told I had to go for a final 5th interview with a higher level manager and a senior manager. After 4 interviews, why can't higher level managers make decisions? Why meet someone who earns more than 4 times what the salary was for the role (this information is not hard to find if you know where to look)? The final interview with a higher level manager and a senior manager literally left me feeling ashamed of my career and personal life so far. I was belittled about my professional experience, education and certifications, made to feel embarrassed about what the psychometric tests suggested some of my traits may be if given the role, and felt degraded receiving the numerous negative responses to the answers I provided to the questions about my private life. To make the situation even more awkward, the higher level manager was completely negative about my candidacy as well during this interview, why bother pushing a candidate through to just try and break them? Needless to say I withdrew my application for the role after this interview. There are other comments on here about the pointy end of Macquarie Telecom being a boys' club, I didn't believe or really understand these comments until that final interview, you can tell no decisions are made without the head of this club giving the seal of approval. Would loathe to see how the place runs day to day. And don't believe their NPS score, it can be easily manipulated, it's silly to go and externalise a message around a metric that can be twisted internally to attract new customers, no one cares and it's #Notsountelco to do this. If you're reading this, you don't need a job at this organisation, you have better values, ethics, morals and experience which other organisations will celebrate and use positively.Interview
