      Great work-life balance and flexibility

      Pros

      I started as a part-time banking service consultant in one of SML's call-centre's, and progressed to other departments and roles during my time there. Like any corporate role, your experience will depend largely on the supportiveness and approachability of your leader and their leaders. I was provided with many opportunities for career advancement and movement into other departments. This applies to all, even if you are starting at the very bottom of the ladder like I did. My experience was that management is generally supportive of your career goals and helping you maintain your work-life balance. The flexibility of the organisation is excellent - work from home is available and very common (even pre-COVID), and they are open to flexible leave and working around other commitments. If flexibility is important to you, Suncorp is a great place to work. Just make sure you are open and honest with your leader, and diligent in your work.

      Cons

      The remuneration is lower than you would be offered at many other organisations, with salaries and bonuses being generally lower than most similar roles with other banks.

      Pros

      Good work life balance options, flexible work generally well accepted Good leave provisions Pay was reasonable but seems to be slipping the last few years

      Cons

      Very hierarchical and conservative Very political - controlled by a few people at senior levels who have been there all their lives. If you're not in with them, forget it. Very slow and bureaucratic. Lots of poor decisions made at senior levels as a result of a "no bad news" culture
