      Is like any other corporate company

      May 4, 2020 - Senior Manager, Product Management in Sydney
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Offers great remuneration packages and a highly professional working environment. Macquarie exudes a premium brand, and its Macquarie Foundation Group leads the industry in social giving, matching every dollar raised by the employee. You won't expect to find Macquarie in the newspapers for the wrong reasons unlike the other Big 4 (or small 4 depending on who you ask), there's a strong culture of risk management and integrity instilled from Alan Moss' days.

      Cons

      Like any corporate company, it is not without bureaucracy in its abundance which is not conducive to those looking to operate quickly. The senior management pays lip service to its performance appraisal process, which is about KPIs and not career growth. They have done well to remunerate their staff, which reflects the sheer volume of long-tenured staff there, ie. those that love the 9-5 and enjoys their status quo.
