    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Westpac Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had a really great boss, who was really supportive, and open and transparent. I learnt a lot from him, and really enjoyed my role.

    Cons

    Some people in other areas in similar roles didn't have such a great experience, as their bosses weren't as supportive. It seemed to be very different depending on your boss.

    Advice to Management

    I felt like the culture wasn't equal throughout the organisation, it would be good to fix this.

    I have been working at Westpac Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Really good for parents and encourages flexible working as long as you get your work done. Also product team runs on smaller numbers so in the current environment should avoid too many cuts

    Cons

    Pay could be better but couldn't it everywhere

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Westpac Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great employee incentives and flexibility in terms of work arrangements. They're very willing to fund training and education, and the pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    Huge bureaucracy where nothing happens fast. Terrible at performance management

    Advice to Management

    PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT - find the right people and keep them rather than putting them through a ridiculously slow promotion system, and more importantly get rid of the bad people
