    I worked at Westpac Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People were generally very friendly, helpful and collaborative. Not as dog eat dog as Macquarie Bank. Constant cost cutting is making things a lot harder. Morale is beginning to wane.

    Cons

    Constant cost cutting is beginning to impinge on the Westpac value proposition for employees which is a big shame.

    Pros

    Opportunities and collegiate working environment make Westpac a great place to work and develop your career. Compared to other top ASX companies, Westpac truly values diversity in all aspects and is vocal about that.

    Cons

    Westpac has the complexity that goes with a large company which may not be suited to everyone. If 'red tape' could be reduced (respecting the fact that prudential management is really important) then speed of implementation could be enhanced.

    I have been working at Westpac Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Westpac offers a wide range of flexible work arrangements enabling a healthy work-life balance, they have a great paternity leave scheme and other benefits. They are devoted to equal distribution of genders in management.

    Cons

    Entry level pay grades are below average and higher level roles are average pay grades. Westpac jargon is extensive and can be confusing for up to a year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring external parties are higher pay than promoting internal staff for the same roles at lower pay. Talent will go elsewhere.
