    I have been working at Commonwealth Bank of Australia

    Pros

    Passion for technology and change

    Cons

    Right talent not getting their due. People being given more than their due, if they are able to gel with and please management, even if work is substandard. Racist prejudices are carried by everyone in the whole world, so nothing new happening in CBA.

    Pros

    CBA is a really good company to work for seeing there is a good balance between home and work. At previous companies you still find yourself working till late hours, however at CBA everyone leaves at 5pm.

    Cons

    Going through some restructuring, but all banks go through this at some point in time.
