    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Only positive is that the company is well known so it looks "Great" on your resume

    Cons

    Everything about this place is horrible. From management to culture. Felt like I worked at a call center. No work life balance. Slavery

    Advice to Management

    Take management courses. For those interviewing managers ensure the manager actually know his or her work. My manager knew nothing about the business and had everyone answer emails for her.
