    I worked at Australia and New Zealand Banking part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements
    Job share opportunities
    Great salary packages and benefits

    Cons

    Still runs on a who you know (jobs for the boys) mentality
    Have seen very senior people display unprofessional behaviors against key /core values of the organisation get promoted . Creates a bad culture

    Advice to Management

    Be serious about upholding your values
    Do appropriate 360 degree checking for very senior appointments - people manage up well - speak to a broader range of employees about senior appointments before they are made.

    Great to work, nice culture, nice benefits. The team and people are very friendly and always provide advice. It is a great organisation to work for.

    Nothing to share - it is a great place to work for. There is no career improvements available. The structure needs to be better.

    Management is great and very friendly and helpful. You can learn alot of new skills from management and learn how to upskill and bring the best customer service to clients

    I have been working at Australia and New Zealand Banking full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working environment, good development opportunities and some travel though not much. Encourages breadth of experience in different roles.

    Cons

    Some politics but not too much, as with any big organisation. Not the best technology...

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology, it's the future. The company is still using programs from 1900s.

    I worked at Australia and New Zealand Banking full-time

    Pros

    Their compensation and benefits are good. They are really a company that is implementing diversity

    Cons

    Poor in assisting former employees and not reliable. I submitted my clearance on November 4, 2015 and was told that I will get my final pay after 30 business days. So I sent a message middle part of December 2015 to check the status and I was told that it was not processed hence the wait for another 30 business days. I contacted them on January 10, 2016 and they advised for the second time that it was not processed and they did not even apologize for it. They told me that my request will be placed under urgent. I checked again on February 2016, I sent them an email but no one is responding until I receive an email from their payroll that my final pay is still in Finance and they are waiting for it to be released, this notification I received 2 weeks ago. It is the 4th month already that I am waiting for my final pay and until now I have not received any updates and I sent them another email to follow up but they are not answering. For those who are interested in applying in this company think twice. They are just good to you when you are currently working for them but once you leave the company this is how they will treat you

    Advice to Management

    Please dont give a false hope or misinformation in all aspects

    Pros

    Special events and departmental functions

    Cons

    unrealistic KPI, countless cost cutting and efficiency improvement programs to make you work more with no financial rewards. Plenty of OT on offer at your own personal times

    Advice to Management

    If you want to cut cost trim the fat and waste at the top

    Pros

    Great experience; ability to work with different teams and gain a more holistic view of ANZ, banking and potential careers as a whole.

    Cons

    Not many areas that are quite technical, speak to as many people as you can that already work there to get advise on which team would suit you.

    Pros

    Got to experience various aspects of the bank that full timers wouldn't necessarily be able to. Good starting point for newcomers to the banking industry.

    Cons

    Workload was intermittent and line managers were often caught off guard by the process. System access requests took weeks to arrange and meant inability to work effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Im sure they are well aware of what needs actioning.

    I worked at Australia and New Zealand Banking full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the world class practices of corporate governance can be seen.

    Cons

    Too many South Asians holding strategic positions --- an area needs to be diversified over time. Concentration of a certain race is not good for the reputation of a company.
