    I have been working at Commonwealth Bank of Australia full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on projects / programs with large scale.
    Best customer-facing technology in the market.
    Innovative and forward thinking.

    Cons

    A culture that accepts a lack of accountability and tolerates repeated failure (and not the fail fast and learn from the experience type of failure), from staff at all levels, makes project delivery extremely challenging.
    Over-specialisation in technology roles means that everything requires lots of people and meetings to get things done - we long for a dev-ops world.
    Internal technology is very dated (Windows XP, for example, is still standard operating system) and

    Advice to Management

    Great vision but need to drive execution - more accountability, less bureaucracy.
