      Pros

      Great place to work. Lots of opportunities to develop and move into other departments. Commbank is really ahead with Digital and it’s great to be a part of that. Great application of agile ways of working. Great talent, and a lot of great people to work with and learn from.

      Cons

      Progress can be totally strangles by risk and compliance. Obviously risk and compliance are totally necessary but I think a better balance could be found. It’s also the most political place I’ve ever worked, a lot of power struggles.. but to be fair, that’s probably the same in most work places and you will learn a lot about navigating the politics
