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

    Pros

    Work Life Balance
    Everyone is 'switched on'
    Positive environment with no micro management
    Inter company mobility

    Cons

    Slower progression
    Remuneration
    Possibility to be pigeon holed based on the team you're in (limited mobility, although encouraged)
    Salary and promotion reviews are limited to each team
    Easy to feel like a 'cog in a greater machine'
    Although encouraged, difficult to implement process improvements due to nature of the systems in place.

    Advice to Management

    -Revise the promotion/remuneration strategy as central HR provide same stats and insights each quarter but don't address them in updates.
    -Employees across divisions aren't very open in communicating feedback in case it affects the above.
