Management at Bankwest

How accessible are managers and do they make good mentors? You may want to address internal communication, performance feedback or praise and recognition.

Managers are almost always happy to make time and talk. They do tend to be busy, however you can usually find time

The approach of employees having a people manager as well as a line or technical manager is a great one as it removes conflicts

All my managers so far have been accessible and easy to talk to. We hold fortnightly one to one meetings and also performance reviews
Graduate, Perth
Very good. Most senior managers know the employees in their department by name and have friendly conversations

Within Finance it is fantastic. Interacting with other divisions I have experienced  a degree of superiority complex and hierarchy, which impacts on the culture, outputs and efficiency of the work environment

It really depends on the person. Some are excellent and some are out of their depth, as is always the case with any company of this size. Managers seem to always want project visibility but there doesn't seem any uniform framework in place for this. Managers will endeavor to catch up with their direct reports frequently to track performance and development

My manager works with me on a day to day basis so performance feedback, praise and recognition are given regularly during our one to one meeting
