    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great exposure to bleeding edge technology - lots happening in IT

    Cons

    Too much focus on ‘innovation’ dreamers and talkers values over actual execution capability or sustainability. Poor leadership - e.g. cio is a puppet pushed around by a Long existing power group within IT. Extremely poor and only one way communication by leadership. Not an inclusive workplace at mid - higher management

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better
    Treat people like assets
    Dissolve your power centres which are now archaic and holding sustainability back

    I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Relaxed culture, people all very friendly
    - Great work-life balance (most days finishing at 5-5.30, busy period no later than 6.30)
    - Perks i.e. free food, fun runs, massages
    - Good salary
    - Very flat structure, managers all come up and talk to you, very friendly

    Cons

    - Repetitive work, not really mentally stimulating i.e. you arrive at 8.30 and sit down at your computer pretty much all day except lunch
    - Not much room for growth (guess this depends on your attitude)
    - Work is very much work i.e. people are friendly but (again depends on your office and team) do not extend friendship beyond work

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Great culture, pay and working conditions. There are also pathways to different roles if you apply yourself.

    Keep doing what you are doing. The function of the team is getting great results and doing a good job.
