I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Working with other like-minded, ambitious people is infectious and helps spur you on - to think creatively, solve problems better, always be on the look-out for opportunities.
Good bonuses are possible for even "lower-level" associates, and are definitely above average even for within this industry.

Cons

Annual bonuses are highly dependent on your own performance and can vary a lot from year to year. They are also dependant on the business performance and your division's and even your team's (although this leads to more of a collaborative/sharing work environment, in order to enable taems and individuals to succeed.)

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Exciting products and some very bright people to work with

    Cons

    Whilst Macquarie operated globally, the business was very much run out of Sydney. EMEA was viewed as "off-shore".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage opportunities for other locations to take a lead.
    Focus more on diversity - lagging far behind other investment banks.

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Location is in the heart of the BCD

    Cons

    Poor leadership, focusing on minutiae and going through motions
    Not innovative or entrepreneurial
    Antiquated systems that are compensated by staff working long hours - ie working dumber not smarter

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terminate some of the EDs in key positions as the make decisions to prolong their own longevity rather than what is best for the company

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
