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

    Pros

    Autonomy and ability to engage with staff across all levels of the organization. Ability to 'write your own story' of how your career will progress

    Cons

    None specifically - flat structure and ability to contribute at grass roots is something I value - if you prefer a hierarchy and lots of structure in being told what to do and how, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace diversity in all its forms!

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    Met initially with a couple of senior leaders who would be relative peers; followed by a meeting with the head of BFS North America; discussions were ongoing for months. Mandatory satisfactory psychometric testing prior to hire.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing that seemed scripted. Questions related to my experience and intentions with respect to the unique post I was being considered for (to head a major transformative project).   Answer Question
