    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.

    Pros

    Base pay is high. Good office culture, mostly. Open floor plan allows you to learn from senior folks in the office.

    Cons

    The bank is stagnating and has failed to capitalize on a market upswing. Hard to move up unless you're Australian or have been at the firm since coming out of undergrad.
