    I worked at AMP Limited full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary
    Paid training
    Standard FT hours

    Cons

    Constant micro-managing and supervision
    Most of what customers were calling about were things that only a few select people could do but who you could not let people talk to. So you bore the brunt of all the anger.
    Your day was monitored to the minute; if you were on a customer call through your scheduled break, you got reprimanded

    Advice to Management

    Hire more underwriters
    Be more flexible on break times

    The company has people from different backgrounds.Always work to be done, autonomy encouraged, friendly team mates.

    Pros

    Overall a great bunch of people to work with who genuinely care about their colleagues. Most departments are really supportive of flexible hours etc.

    Cons

    Salaries are low compared to the rest of the market so AMP is not being fully competitive in that area.

    Look after your people as they are the best asset you have got

    I have been working at AMP Limited full-time

    Pros

    Very flexible with work/life balance and autonomy to perform your job
    Competitive remuneration although bonuses very variable
    Genuinely trying to put the customer at the centre

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is horrible and never improves despite sporadic attention
    Tendency to run away from elements of strategy if times get tough
    People are stretched so thin that despite best efforts everything takes forever

    Advice to Management

    Run the company for the medium to long term, not just to keep the media/analysts off our backs for the next few months

    I worked at AMP Limited full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. Office in a good location with a nice coffee machine. Loads of meeting rooms.

    Cons

    Management. Rude, condescending. Couldn't care less about you or your development. Tried to drip every last drop of blood out of you. Pay was poor too.

    Advice to Management

    We are human beings. You clearly are not if you feel it is ok to treat people the way that you do.
