    Pros

    Flexible working hours was one of the reasons why I stayed in Westpac. It allowed me to achieve work/life balance.
    Westpac provides study assistance to employees seeking to improve their skills through undergraduate and post graduate studies.

    Cons

    There are too many 'chiefs' and not enough 'indians' to do the jobs at the coal-face. There is a persistent culture in Westpac to create pyramid structures and numerous management layers which does not really assist in information dissemination and transparency in decision-making processes.

    There are people in senior management who are technically superior in their area of expertise but extremely lacking in people management and coaching skills. Senior management appear to be internally focused on nurturing their careers and not as much on nurturing the careers of the people reporting to them.

    Advice to Management

    Over the years, Westpac has changed from an employer who looked after all of its employees to an employer whose main priority is to please shareholders. Westpac only plays lip service to its espoused values. Every year there is a restructure and every year, good people leave the organisation out of frustration of disillusionment. What happened to Westpac's honesty and integrity in the way it deals with its employees?
