    I worked at National Australia Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some good people to work with.

    Cons

    The biggest problem in NAB Assist is the more you brown nose the further you'll get. 80% of leads, managers and head of are useless but only still there because they brown nose. The GM doesn't seem to be able to see what goes on. The amount of casual racism and sexual comments you would hear daily is atrocious (even a head of would be a part of this). No point raising it because middle/senior management just protect favourites. Daily breaching of debt collection guidelines but when raised it would get swept under the carpet. Use to be a good environment but then got dodgy senior leaders who are out for themselves/ favourites came on board.

    Advice to Management

    Time for a overhaul from GM down. Get someone who can see the BS lying going on from head ofs.
