I worked at Macquarie Group full-time for more than a year

Pros

The work environment at Macquarie is ideal for an entry level employee, very collaborative and helpful. They offer competitive salary.

Cons

I was always unsure of the corporate vision at large, I felt that my group in particular worked in a vacuum, too separated from other resources Macquarie could hypothetically offer.

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Mostly filled with very smart people
    - Fun loving "Aussie" attitude
    - Results are more important than putting in hours
    - Can get creative if you have the right people above you

    Cons

    - There are the cool insiders and then everyone else
    - NYC is an outpost and sometimes decisions are made in Sydney or London that could be better made if they took the time to understand the situation in the US better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Allow people and markets time to develop and pay off
    - Treat all people with respect and courtesy

    Former Employee - Analyst Programmer  in  Sydney (Australia)
    Former Employee - Analyst Programmer in Sydney (Australia)

    I worked at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - flexible working arrangements, can work from home
    - some people in the team are switched on

    Cons

    - long hours
    - out dated technologies
    - senior management is reactive, poor short term decisions made that are of no benefit in the future
    - often have to manage upwards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - younger IT staff should be promoted upwards more quickly to bring new ideas
    - some senior management who've stayed at teh company for too long i.e. 10 years + stifle innovation
    - management need be more proactive and innovative about their IT strategy, costs are unnecessarily being incurrred from high TCO's with over-engineered solutions, vendor lock ins and generally poor short term and reactive decisions.
