- Diverse experiences
- The opportunities for career advancement, high performance culture
- Experience & exposure to different areas
- Great opportunities for networking Flexible work hours Is customer focus and does live by its values
- Very flexible working arrangements, good culture
- level of administrative processes
- The structure of the graduate program, requires a little more clarity.
- A lot of technology work is outsourced.
- Very few international opportunities. Time it takes to get things done, bureaucracy.
- Guidance seems to depend more on the team you're in and the people around you than HR. The graduate program seems to be heavily dependent on the stream managers - with little involvement from the wider graduate HR group.
What insiders say about…
On this current project I had the role of a business analyst working on a multi-million-dollar project. I assisted with overseeing User Acceptance Testing as well as dabbling in some change management aspects. Day to day responsibilities include keeping in touch with the testers to address their concerns, make sure all testing is being documented and to prepare for testing each day.
The culture is amazing. Everyone gets along no matter which department and we are all willing to help each other at any time.
Application, Culture-fit assessment, Psychometric assessments (x3), video interview, assessment center
More of a conversation with the usual generic questions skimmed at the end
Know what�s going on in the industry. Build a connection with the interviewer. Know about the company. Practice interview with someone in the industry
The company prides itself on being a flexible work place. I set my own hours and have made use of flexibility a few times in the last year
Seems to be in line, if not more, than the market for a person in my position (although I have nothing to compare it to).
The discounts on banking products are great, can save some good money from these!
Managers are highly accessible. many people will willingly give you guidance if you ask and there are multiple programs to build mentor relations within the bank
Lots of soft skills workshops available, but would like to get more technical training.
Quite easy to get to senior analyst level, making the jump to manager/senior manager is varied depending on the area
Inclusion & Diversity is a central pillar of the company. Many employee action groups to get involved in.
Foundations drive CSR work and resource allocation. I've been involved with assessing community grant applications.
Very clean with great facilities. Dress code in Group Tech a little more casual- No ties
