Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Project Manager

I have been working at Westpac Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Interesting work. Great team members. Supportive leadership

Cons

Work load can be intense. Tight timelines with lots of change activity

Current Employee - Branch Concierge

I have been working at Commonwealth Bank of Australia part-time for more than a year

Pros

Their care for customers is genuine and financial wellbeing is always at the forefront of everything they do.

Cons

They are struggling with phone banking calls at the moment, so wait times are extended and customers have already experienced frustrations before entering the branch, which means they’re already angry
