    I have been working at Westpac Group full-time

    Pros

    Walks the talk - some companies talk about ensuring their people and customers are supported. Westpac actually follows through with tangible actions. People are generally positive and good to work with. Plenty of opportunity if you showed enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.

    Cons

    A very old company constantly trying to transform itself to keep up with a fast-paced modern world and struggling to do so. Inefficient and slow internal processes which can be frustrating but again provides opportunities for improvement.
