    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    great opportunity to travel, flat organisation structure, and smaller footprint in NY allowed opportunity to take on more in a role and grow it.

    Cons

    with head office in Asia, long evening hours on calls, and management pulled back decision making to Australia, whenever they felt like it and didn't understand the local market.

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time

    Pros

    Invests in professional development of staff, encourages community involvement, reasonable compensation

    Cons

    Culture varies from office to office, and it is based on the agenda of the head of the office. Company culture embodies an extreme sense of competitiveness, so if you don't thrive in a culture that focuses more on dog-eat-dog than collaboration, then this isn't the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the competition that is openly encouraged and embraced by senior management because a lot of top talent passes based on that factor alone. The majority of employees want to focus on their own jobs and reaching their maximum potential without the distraction and stress of feeling pitted against co-workers in order to succeed.

    Pros

    Depending on the executive you support, working at Macquarie can be a great place to work.

    Cons

    Disjointed management. The EA's have a separate manager and are treated differently from all other employees. Very few paths to grow in company while supporting current team.

    Pros

    Flexibility in work arrangement. Support staff are helpful. Fully stocked kitchen and free lunch every day. Data and various subscriptions provided.

    Cons

    None. Some of the free lunches are lower quality. I think the computers and internet are a little slower due to macquarie fire walls.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    More relaxed and laid back working environment, not crazy hours, good perks for free breakfast, beverages, coffee, etc

    Don't really have the smartest people to work with - if you are a junior person who wants to learn new stuff, probably not the best place to start

    Cons

    Very Australian - I worked in their New York office, and it is filled with native Australians. It seems like all Australians want to come to work in their New York office and not go back, and Americans just can't really get promoted within the firm.
