Reviews by Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.3GradAustralia surveyed 12 graduates working at Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 12 responses.
- The culture. Very friendly and welcoming place to work.
- *Opportunities presented to a new graduate, such a presenting in front of the Board Risk Committee *I've only been in the company for 6 months and have already met a huge number of employees from all parts of the bank, including the CFO, CRO and CEO.
- Friendly & approachable staff Opinions are heard Good corporate culture Work-life balance
- There are lots of opportunities for personal growth and career development, and there is great staff morale. It's great to work for an employer who genuinely cares about its people and the communities in which we operate.
- Flexible working arrangements, an inclusive culture and one where everyone treats you the same (even when I was a graduate).
- Lack of structure in the graduate program.
- While 80/90% of the time there is a clear task at hand, there have been times (particularly at the end of a rotation) where I have very little to do.
- Behind in technology
- Business unit silos
- Not international like other major banks
What insiders say about…
I do a lot of reporting work and competitor tracking. A little bit of repetition in my work but have plenty of opportunity to do new work.
Activity based working, much more collaborative than competitive, not hierarchical, great social inclusion out of office hours with team drinks and events.
Graduate programs are a little different and much more thorough than some other job hiring processes: Grad hiring includes: 1. CV/Resume 2. Psychometric test 3. Video interview 4. Assessment center 5. Panel interview 6. Emotional Intelligence test
Study for the psychometric test. Know and understand key aspects of the company before you apply.
I tend to work a standard 38 hour week - sometime I will work more, but my leaders are flexible with me taking time off or leaving early if need be.
The trade off for work/life balance and a great culture is less pay relative o peers in same industry - but this is fine for me
Quality staff super plan and staff benefits - eg. as I have my mortgage with the bank, if I die my mortgage will be paid off (up to $500K)
Most are very good. Communication is done well most times.
Training is provided and adhered to at the beginning of your role. Training provided is adequate for the role. Additional training options are available.
Management are generally looking for people with high quality transferrable skills - if you are good with people and achieving positive outcomes you will be targeted for promotion
Our policies are great, however in my experience there seem to be more male than female senior leaders. However I believe our organisation is sincere in its commitment to change this.
Our Community Bank model is unique - we partner with Australian communities to distribute branch profits back into local causes. Two of my rotations were in the branch network, and one of my KPIs was to get involved in at least 1 community activity each quarter. With around 4000 branch staff, that equates to 16,000 volunteering opportunities a year. I have volunteered at School Fetes, hosted Work Experience programs and assisted with 'Saleability', a disability sailing group, just to name a few.
They are fine. Dress code is formal, with casual Fridays. I like wearing corporate wear.

Partner with greenfleet to offset carbon emissions through a biodiverse revegetation program, 18329 trees planted. Purchase 100% carbon neutral paper. Initiatives to improve energy efficiency - priority when building corporate sites. Statement of commitment to the environment pledge to assist our staff, customers, partners.
