    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.

    Positive Outlook

    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 worked at ANZ Bank full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    Everything especially technology is moving or has been moved offshore. Restructures every 6 month creates a very insecure environment - overly process driven. Career opportunities for Australians now very limited.
