    I have been working at Westpac Group for less than a year

    Pros

    Good strong set of cultural values that are clearly communicated on joining. Great people and team to work with. The business has clear focus on the customer and places them first. The environment also encourages diversity and workplace flexibility to help balance work & life.

    Cons

    The only niggle is lack of data security from Manpower. Highly sensitive personal information is entered on secure website, yet is then transmitted via PDF unencrypted on email on the open internet. This is highly disconcerting.

    Such a large organisation that it will take some time to develop an in-house knowledge of whom to best contact for specific needs. Nature of the beast.
