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

    Pros

    Dynamic and rewarding, with a strong team culture and laid-back Aussie approach to the workplace.

    Cons

    Maddeningly frustrating bureaucracy at times, and somewhat opaque management strategy beyond a certain level. Chops and changes approaches frequently. High expectations for performance.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people more than the results sometimes - a focus on short term financial goals only doesn't always equate to long term value.
