Only your best performance is expected, but you will be rewarded for your efforts

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Sydney (Australia)

I have been working at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWorking with other like-minded, ambitious people is infectious and helps spur you on - to think creatively, solve problems better, always be on the look-out for opportunities.
Good bonuses are possible for even "lower-level" associates, and are definitely above average even for within this industry.

ConsAnnual bonuses are highly dependent on your own performance and can vary a lot from year to year. They are also dependant on the business performance and your division's and even your team's (although this leads to more of a collaborative/sharing work environment, in order to enable taems and individuals to succeed.)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Spent 8 years in Infrastructure Operations - Wasted my time and talents

IT Senior Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at Macquarie Group full-time for more than 8 years


Pros: Macquarie was once a wonderful place to work. Innovative, smart people, good energy. I think what happened was they took on more they… Cons: There are many cliques formed at Macquarie. There is an us (Australians) and them (Americans) mentality which has gotten worst… Advice to Senior Management: Listen to the people and respect those doing the work. Also, Australians… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
