    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Westpac Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Close to home, gym, some good people there, in some cases, good learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Mates helping their mates, little knowledge sharing, unless you are part of that group, and they help each other to get better positions. Some people were good in terms of skills and experience but some were too immature to be in higher positions. Again, it's who you know. Unfortunately, some malicious people with influence can screw you over. Get on their bad side and kiss goodbye any opportunities.
