    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bankwest full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible Working (perfect for employees with young families). Facilities. Location. Technology & tools. Professionialism and structure.

    Cons

    Pay is average (and the main reason majority of employees seek pastures new). Work culture has consistently declined over the last few years. No external training opportunities whatsoever (Hasn't been since the CBA takeover). Company wide agile transformation looks to have slowed productivity instead of increase it whilst also impacting negatively on the working culture and introducing division and competition between it's tribes and platforms. Zero investment in team building in recent years (Prior to CBA takeover this was a major pro). Restructuring happens far too regularly. Key senior management turnover far too regular (inline with restructuring aka. golden bullets flying all over the place). Middle management at times treated horrifically when it comes to restructuring.
