Business Manager (Former Employee) – St Leonards NSW – 23 April 2017
AMP promote work life balance, however provide no guidance to people leaders about how to make working from home arrangements work. You are told you "have to make it work" and HR encourages staff to complain in arrangements are not made. However, when challenged with a complain, you are told to "make it work within reason" Apparently your senior manager's personal stance on working from home is reason enough for you not to have it approved
Change Manager (Current Employee) – Sydney – 3 March 2017
AMP is continually looking at ways to improve the way it does things, including its staff development. The company has been undergoing a long term transformation which has changed a lot in the company.
Platforms Analyst (Former Employee) – Melbourne Victoria Australia – 7 September 2016
AMP Ltd was a challenging place to work. At the time of my departure, it was going through some large financial and structural changes in order to make it a more efficient business model. The going was slow, and the effects on clients was great.
AML/CTF Advisor (Current Employee) – Sydney CBD NSW – 17 August 2016
AMP believes in flexible type of working, hence maintaining a work and personal life balance is easy. AMP also provides work from home facilities. Sydney Circular Quay office location is great too and has a great view of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.
Commercial Manager, AMP (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 15 May 2016
Career progression is really down to your immediate line managers! Other than that, despite the talk of diversity it is focused entirely on gender almost to the extent that you feel you'd be passed over if there was a female candidate available.
I was relied on by the reception team as an intermediary between the clients waiting to attend their meetings, or needing assistance with directions or information. I worked mostly solitary, organinising the rooms, their layout, and equipment needed prior to each commencing meeting. I had to exact the clients requests prior to meetings according to the reservation details. It was a pleasant, clean environment and I was also assisted by the front desk reception team when they had a chance. the clients were respectful and polite and rarely complained.
Team Assistant/Personal Assistant (Former Employee) – Sydney, Circular Quay – 14 July 2015
typically I was busy. Management was great and I enjoyed working with co-workers. The most enjoyable part was talking/working with various people. I was also in charge of contractors and thoroughly enjoyed that!
AMP is generally a good organisation and is trying to focus on the customer. But as they are not growing as well organically they are falling back into hammering costs. That is not always a bad thing in areas with low hanging fruit, but much of that went a long time ago.
The areas with some apparent opportunities are not being reviewed closely enough, yet others that have been hit before are being asked to provide benefits again.
The main way to provide some benefit is to invest to better systems.
But then things come back to cost and these projects never seem to get finished as per the original scope. AMP has a trail of half done projects that then require future investment to finish off. But phase 2 seldom happens.
Whilst the broad strategy is fine, AMP takes too long to get things out there. Rather than focusing resources on 3-4 key projects, they like to have a range of things happening at the same time. Just means the key projects take longer than they need to respond to market changes and can become comprised on costs due to having to access a limited pool of funds that is being diluted by other less important projects.
pays higher super than market and bonus structure can be good.
Too cost focused. Not focused on delivering a few key things sooner before moving onto the next.
