    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time

    Pros

    Had many opportunities to develop career: increase in seniority, breadth and depth of business knowledge, good people, generally good managment and good remuneration (mainly pre-2008)

    Cons

    Long hours, became more bureaucratic with size. Lost some entrepreneurial spirit after 2008. Pay freeze and no bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to an entrepreneurial culture rather than a cost saving culture. "Savings" through offshoring result in a lower level of service due to less knowledge, less thinking due to following scripts and large processing queues.

This is the last step and then you will hear back from HR regarding whether you have been successful or unsuccessful in obtaining the position.
