Pros

The work environment at Macquarie is ideal for an entry level employee, very collaborative and helpful. They offer competitive salary.

Cons

I was always unsure of the corporate vision at large, I felt that my group in particular worked in a vacuum, too separated from other resources Macquarie could hypothetically offer.

    Pros

    - flexible working arrangements, can work from home
    - some people in the team are switched on

    Cons

    - long hours
    - out dated technologies
    - senior management is reactive, poor short term decisions made that are of no benefit in the future
    - often have to manage upwards

    Advice to Management

    - younger IT staff should be promoted upwards more quickly to bring new ideas
    - some senior management who've stayed at teh company for too long i.e. 10 years + stifle innovation
    - management need be more proactive and innovative about their IT strategy, costs are unnecessarily being incurrred from high TCO's with over-engineered solutions, vendor lock ins and generally poor short term and reactive decisions.

  2. Challenging environment, poor systems with groups working in silos
