What kind of career opportunities exist at ASX?

Pros

They have some fun social events. I liked the people I worked with. It's a good place to learn about financial markets.

Cons

- Staff morale is extremely low at the moment which is reflected in the staff survey results yet nothing is done about it. - Executives are all talk and don't display the behaviour they expect from staff and are generally poor leaders. - For most people there's almost no opportunity for career progression. - There's virtually no training available. - Despite profits going up bonuses are going down and there's absolutely no transparency around how these are set. - Very hierarchical. - Technology used internally by staff is lacking. - To sum up it's not the worst place to work but don't go there expecting to get much out of it or to get ahead in your career.

Advice to Management

- Reward staff in line with the market and make the bonus process more transparent. - Get rid of long tenured execs/GMs with old fashioned management styles and bring in people with fresh ideas.

How is management perceived at ASX?

Pros

Very flexible workplace, sometimes to the detriment of work being done Some good people Easy-going place to work

Cons

Where to begin... The company does not want to change, as highlighted in previous reviews, particularly as it is a virtual monopoly. Processes and systems are antiquated, staff can be unprofessional and management is inept (as highlighted in previous reviews). More time is spent on documenting what needs to be done than actually doing the task. Between ineptitude and laziness it's hard to work out what frustrates more. Management is quite old-school and can micromanage you (depending on whom you have).

Advice to Management

Look at bringing in some new blood (as you have been), but actually listening to them. Move-on staff and management that have been there too long (significant number)
