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

    Pros

    Challenging, autonomous, change, innovative. Focused on delivery, good culture and opportunities to network, promotes collaboration. You get out what you put in.

    Cons

    Long hours expected when required (but not expected when not required). You need to be motivated to work individually, need to be able to adapt easily to change.

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Opportunity is everywhere at Macquarie, it's about you taking charge of that and making things happen
    - Fantastic learning environment. Flat structure means access and mentorship from management is realistic and very beneficial
    - Pay is generally above market, with generous bonuses based on individual and company performance

    Cons

    - Performance management culture is terrible. There are 2 annual meetings where your performance is 'reviewed', it's supposed to me a more regular catch up to focus on development but this is BS
    - While it is encouraged to take part in contributing to the broader culture and things that are going on in the office (volunteering, mentoring grads etc), this counts for nothing and is not recognised or accounted for in your reviews or pay packet

    Advice to Management

    - Get serious about performance management, do away with the fluffy BS rhetoric and make some actual, meaningful changes to process / culture around this.
    - Have a serious look at whether you think a one period per year for promotion is realistic for the modern world. It's crushing and very demoralising to miss that window and be ready for the next level in your career shortly afterwards, but then have to wait a whole year more for the next opportunity to be promoted.
