Salary at Westpac

What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?

No bonus for graduates. However all staff get $1000 in shares
Graduate, Sydney
pay is definitely competitive. very happy in that regard
Graduate, Sydney
There is a salary cap for graduates. The regular salary increase per year is on par with other banks. You can get $1000 worth of Westpac shares if you stay for a year. A bonus is based on your behavior not really performance, and it isn't much. There is a pool of funds for bonuses and the top performers get the largest percentage.

Base salary is average; bonus structure is decent

The pay at Westpac is competitive when compared to other graduate programs.
Graduate, Sydney
Good for a graduate starting salary, but I think there should be greater scope to differentiate yourself.
Graduate, Sydney
Annual leave loading is good. Negative leave is good. As a grad, I can't speak for bonuses
Graduate, SYDNEY
Relative to other IT grad roles are competitor companies, our pay is fine.
Graduate, Sydney
Pay is quite reasonable; I think lower bonuses could be made more accessible to incentivised staff to reach for the higher bonuses. There should also be bonuses that reward staff for behavioral goals being reached.

Salary is ok, but disappointing that grads don't receive even a small bonus when we are performance reviewed and do real work for the company.

Pay progresses with your career. Bonuses annually.
Graduate, Sydney
Pay is standard market rate, no bonuses for graduates
Graduate, Sydney
I am aware that other graduate programs across the IT Industry may provide larger pay packages, however, Westpac's graduate package is in line with the other 3 Big banks of Australia.
Graduate, Sydney
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).

What are your company's best or most unusual perks? For example: free tickets, free dinners, moving expenses, taxis, pension, etc.

they offer a lot of items at discounted rates through supplier agreements. they also offer bank products at discounted rates which is absolutely awesome
Graduate, Sydney
The employee perks are not very good or even real perks, better off finding the best deal at other banks. Things like no fees on bank accounts are almost standard now. 0.2% extra interest is sad. Generally, more expensive than other banks so the perks don't even offset that. We do have drinks; half the time they are "self-funded" though. Other events happen like the Christmas party which Westpac pays for.
