    "US office is faltering, hampered by dysfunctional management out of Sydney"

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

    Pros

    Smart, considerate co-workers, relaxed work atmosphere. Smart US-based middle management. An easy-going culture not typically found in IB, but cons discussed below are now overshadowing this. Company historically doesn't like to lay off people. Nice, well-stocked kitchen.

    Cons

    US business is faltering, morale is low, uncertainty is in the air. Would agree with other poster concerning compliance matters.

    Owing to flat hierarchy there are no (or very few) offices, even for compliance-oriented jobs; cafeteria/trading desk-style "one-size-fits-all" seating. Chronic tech issues coupled with poorly trained overseas IT staff.

    Advice to Management

    Sydney management needs to articulate what its strategy is for the US business and implement it -- and compensate people commensurate with their contribution, aligned with how the company does in a given fiscal year.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Very entrepreneurial place where employees are encouraged to think big and push the envelop.
    2. Ability to take responsibility early
    3. Utilize the balance sheet when necessary
    4. Great brand, especially in APAC

    Cons

    1. Work-life balance can be difficult (depends on which regional office you are in. For the more established offices, expect typical bulge bracket hours.)
    2. Some offices can be a bit political (But expect this. The financial services industry isn't really growing...)
