    I worked at ANZ Bank for more than a year

    Pros

    Great office, people, challenging work assignments, training, focus and clear project mandates. International exposure to other ANZ offices and partners in Australia, Europe and Asia. Excellent and relevant training. Talented colleagues generally, and some amazingly brilliant ones. Good word life balance (left before 6pm most days).

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, office politics, time consuming and bloated procedures for software deployments (but somewhat typical of the industry as a whole). Otherwise no complaints. Oh, and don't forget the quota system! For the sake of diversity, there must be a certain % of "insert appropriate word here" as project managers, leads, etc, so this can work either for you (easy to get a job in ANZ) or against you (blocked from being promoted into that job), depending on if you fall in that category or not.

    I have been working at ANZ Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working hours. Varied opportunities. Central location.

    Cons

    ANZ is trying hard to transform itself into a technology company but is doing so by promoting non-technical people into governing positions, meaning the cycle of slow-moving mediocrity continues.

    I have been working at ANZ Bank for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great work life balance and competitive wages.

    Cons

    Very Political in IT. Silo teams, a lack of collaboration between technical support teams. Poor Management and Leadership being driven by India/Singapore & Manila. Lack of recognition for old timers who leave ANZ, no gratitude shown. Jobs are filled offshore without being advertised within the teams. Most are roles being offshored to India and now Manila. A small pool of IT support personnel left in Australia a ratio of 2:10

    I worked at ANZ Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Please keep in mind that the whole organization is quite large, and I can only comment only on what I have experienced myself which is only a small part of the company. Working at this company may have some pros if you are a type that gets credits from communicating with people. Doing actual software development in this company is quite hard bordering to impossible.

    Cons

    See above. People are put in a state of constant search for cover. As projects are routinely failing, the social approach has shifted from completing tasks, to avoiding to be a root cause for failure.

    "Good pay if you perform, but some illogical mgt decisions"

    I have been working at ANZ Bank

    Pros

    Pays well, good work life balance, interesting software development problems to solve in some areas, incredibly dull in others

    Cons

    Amazingly silly decisions made by senior management at times. The review process is a farce, strong teams are implicitely discouraged by grading on a curve amongst tiny sample groups.
