    I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has a great culture. They pride themselves on empowering your inner entrepreneur and remaining accountable and having integrity. Great benefits (20 vacation days a year and 2 personal days and 10 sick days), also you can get up to 16 weeks of paid parental leave.

    Cons

    Though the company prides themselves on a flexible working environment, it's very common to see people work well into the night to reach deadlines. There's not a large work/life balance.
