- 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…
The white collar equivalent of fetching coffees - sending emails, writing documents no one reads, asking questions on the grapevine because knowledge is so poor in the bank and you can't easily find information that is needed.
There is great camaraderie in the workplace, everyone is social, friendly, approachable and buzzing, particularly in financial markets. Team work is extremely important here.
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
Role dependent, but generally good
Pay is standard market rate, no bonuses for graduates
I have regular communication with my managers in both formal and informal channels.
Most training is informal, although I was sent to a formal SAS workshop for a few days. A lot depends on self-learning. I am now quite proficient at SAS (statistical analysis software), and VBA.
I think more and more it needs to become about the right person for the right position, rather than being based on years of service.
Currently at the company level, something like 46% of leadership positions are filled by women, and there is a commitment of 50% by 2017. In my office alone, there is a diversity of gender, race, experience and opinion. We are aware of and continue to manage unconscious bias, with HR Managers ensuring they recruit people from diverse backgrounds, but ultimately it is a meritocracy.
Community volunteering day, interest free loans for buying energy efficient products, etc.
Both offices in the CBD are very good. Dress code varies team to team, but is generally a suit with or without a tie for men
