Nothing changed and the company was constantly going down hill. very poor management and there was a lack of strategic vision.
Working at AMP was seeing 5% personnel reduction year on year and hearing excuses as to why the bonuses were low despite achieving very good business outcomes. The remuneration did not align with the value added.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Parramatta NSW – 31 January 2019
Some of the Managers at the claims department at Parramatta is very unprofessional, they talk negatively about other workers and peers openly which encourages and promotes negativity and bullying in the work place. The managers promote they friends even when they are not suited for the role. the loud people get recognised and the hard working quiet ones get swapped under the carpet. very unprofessional work place and definitely not pleasant to work at.
Workplace culture is the only reason I stayed there
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 15 December 2018
My colleagues were the reason I stayed at AMP so long. Poor management decisions made the job stressful and frustrating. In the Claims department the Case Managers were so overworked they were leaving in droves.
Financial Planner (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 7 June 2018
Hard sell line. I started as a salaried planner and it didn't take long for them to try and sell it to me as a private book. I went to work for what I thought was a great employer and they tried to get me off the book as soon as they had a chance.
Great staff lots of interaction with people, meeting etc
National Remuneration Manager (Former Employee) – Docklands VIC – 19 June 2017
Being remuneration manager was extremely busy. About 80 to 100 emails per day. 9am catch up with team to discuss daily work regular management meetings, team meetings, individual staff catch ups. Learned to manage staff and have lots of patience Management were great, flexible work culture average due to cost cutting. hardest part of the job was to ensure the team functioned and work was up to date. best part of the day was when the team operated well and all work completed.
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.
