I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

good quality people, team environment, opportunities for many overseas postings, diverse and global work force

Cons

pay a little light on, restructured finance team has limited career opportunities, australian centric, get used to late night calls with sydney!

Advice to Management

more work needs to be done on career development. Its been the same line for the last 5 years..many cost cutting measures are seen as petty by staff as the small costs saved dont exceed the value staff saw in the benefits

    I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place for incompetent employees to hide in the machinery. Professional slugs can disappear into a vacuum, where management tries to measure performance by TPS reports, rather than actually knowing the capabilities of their employees.
    Good place to start, if you can get by the suspicious HR/testing process for interviewing. Good candidates are often sent away.

    Cons

    Management consists of cut-throat Australian employees looking to make a name for themselves. U.S. employees are considered second-rate. Management fads are ten years behind the times. Use of technology is ten years behind the times. Employees are distrusted and replaceable. Processes matter, people do not.
    Would not recommend to my worst enemy.
    Politics are very thick, but mostly behind the scenes.
    Management not able to distinguish advanced accomplishment from bench-warming.
    Very frustrating environment. Employee opinions not valued.
    Looking for new employment...

    Advice to Management

    Realize than individual contributions DO matter. Find a way to see the individual. Hint: it's not from fifty thousand feet up through time sheet reports.

    I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time

    Pros

    Well stocked kitchen and pantry. Free breakfast cereals/milk.

    Cons

    Very Australian centric business. Expat Aussies make all important decisions, and Americans are thoroughly distrusted. Management tries to cut costs constantly, nickel and diming at every opportunity. Bonuses have been cut drastically, and morale is terrible. The company is pretty ruthless in how it treats its employees, and managers have the ability to fire people at will for no cause.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out expat Aussie management, and hire locals - they understand American work culture a lot better.
