Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Macquarie Group as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Good, hard working people
Free Toast!
Nice offices and locations

Cons

Very long hours.
Lots of bureaucracy and politics. People are always pushed to do more even though they are already working harder than the majority of people in other organisations

Advice to Management

Make people work smarter, not longer. Reduce the excessive number of processes.

    I have been working at Macquarie Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast, innovative, smart and driven people. A lot of energy and a great building to work in. Activity based working which is great for mingling or great for the days when you need to be focussed and in a quiet environment.

    Cons

    Individual behaviour rewarded rather than team player. Banking type personalities are a little different but once you know how it all works. It's fine.

    Advice to Management

    The managers I've crossed paths with in the bank have all been fantastic, smart, knowledgeable. Some can be tough but very fair. Most as you would hope for are people focussed, friendly and very driven!

    I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and bonus, good offices, good technology, good work life balance (for those who don't pretend), good location, interesting work

    Cons

    Cut throat environment, extremely political, unless Associate Director and above, no real voice and ability to progress, small minded people and unless part of 'Management Team' no real opportunities, people with no management or even decent work skills get promoted if they suck up to the right people

    Advice to Management

    The whole performance management within Compliance is a joke!
