    Small Bank with good credit rating. Nice people, good working atmosphere where everyone knows each other and what their job functions is.

    You will always be an Australian satellite office that operates in the same manner as home office. Systems are fragmented and outdates.

    Advice to Management

    Integration and updating of systems are definitely needed.
