I have nothing negative to report about Macquarie Group.
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW16 August 2018
I was privileged to work for Macquarie Group. I was paid well and worked hard. The fifteen years I spent there were very enjoyable. The Group places a great emphasis on proper human resource management and on equal opportunity employment. Their policies in both areas are to be admired. Given the overall quality of management staff employed by the Group, learning opportunities for those wishing to increase their knowledge are boundless.
Pros
Remuneration
Cons

Pros
Good global exposure, high quality co workers, interesting work
Cons
No value placed on employees, zero work life balance, 12-16 hour days every week, toxic culture

IT Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Malaysia27 January 2018
With my 12 years work in Macquarie Group. My position as a IT manager, I feel proud to be join in Macquarie Group and enjoy work with global team for archive local or global project. But since started in years 2014, IT human resource restructuring and most of the IT senior management was gone due to financial concern.

Pros
