I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Working with other like-minded, ambitious people is infectious and helps spur you on - to think creatively, solve problems better, always be on the look-out for opportunities.
Good bonuses are possible for even "lower-level" associates, and are definitely above average even for within this industry.

Cons

Annual bonuses are highly dependent on your own performance and can vary a lot from year to year. They are also dependant on the business performance and your division's and even your team's (although this leads to more of a collaborative/sharing work environment, in order to enable taems and individuals to succeed.)

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Location is in the heart of the BCD

    Cons

    Poor leadership, focusing on minutiae and going through motions
    Not innovative or entrepreneurial
    Antiquated systems that are compensated by staff working long hours - ie working dumber not smarter

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terminate some of the EDs in key positions as the make decisions to prolong their own longevity rather than what is best for the company

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
