Not a good place to work
Staff (Former Employee) –  Parramatta NSW3 October 2017
Due to nepotism not good people are hired, good skill staff are not hired hence the work environment is not good. Too much bullying and harassing of staff as they are at the mercy of the manager

Not as friendly as you first think
Business Manager (Former Employee) –  St Leonards NSW23 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
Pros
Working with all areas of the business
Cons
Deceptive

Challenging place to work
Platforms Analyst (Former Employee) –  Melbourne Victoria Australia7 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.
Pros
Hardworking and professional workplace
Cons
Career progression

Not bad - if top dollar isn't your top priority
Commercial Manager, AMP (Current Employee) –  Sydney NSW15 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.
Pros
Work from home opportunities
Cons
Average salary only

Supervisor and assistant
Events Services Assistant, AMP (Former Employee) –  Sydney, NSW13 January 2016
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.
Pros
Finished at 4pm everyday
Cons
Half hour breaks

Smart people, politically slow on change, but improving
Manager in IT (Former Employee) –  Sydney, NSW27 July 2015
Transitioning to a new organisation which is great, provides opportunities and paints strong vision for the future.

Good people, smart managers and great place to work.

Given AMP size, market and history it has been a little slow in moving the new 'Future Sate' organisation that many other Fin Srvs organisations did many years ago.
Pros
Working conditions
Cons
Change is slow

Very cost focused
AMP (Current Employee) –  Parramatta10 May 2015
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.
Pros
pays higher super than market and bonus structure can be good.
Cons
Too cost focused. Not focused on delivering a few key things sooner before moving onto the next.
