    Pros

    Flrxible work opportunities, good staff benefits, nice culture, national company with room for personal growth, promotion of diversity agenda, customers

    Cons

    Freeze on replacing fte has put strain on the business. Pay rates freeze is hurting staff, STI bonus is too subjective and targets are not properly defined, IT systems need improvement, too many layers of middle managements

    Advice to Management

    Need to look at renumeration at all levels in the bank - group Ecco has had massive increases whilst group 3/4 employees have been frozen for the last 4 years,.

    I worked at National Australia Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities
    They will invest in you if you can bring a good business case
    Fantastic work life balance
    Very proactive team

    Cons

    Heaps of politics - especially as restructures happen more often than not due to cost cutting
    Pay is not as good as competitors

    Advice to Management

    Look after your staff
    Pay inline with the market and they will stay even longer
    Try and dispense with the politics and the restructures where management already knows who is getting what position - make it fair or call it what it is "a clean house"

    Pros

    Consistent values supporting community responsibility and best value for customers, work-life balance, flexible working environment, pursuit of excellence

    Cons

    My perspective (level 4 position) may be skewed more positively than more junior positions. I have had some feedback from others that there is less flexibility, etc for level 1 and 2 positions. However many of the pros would remain true for all staff.
