Ok, however long hours required
Great place to work and a huge focus on staff, however, communication was always very formal and little done to support staff unless large measures taken by staff members to exceed KPI's. Performance reviews played down but taken very seriously when performed which was confusing.

Company politics
If you can avoid the politics, which seem everywhere and align yourself with a good and honest manager, it could be a good job. It really is who you know and not what you know.

Good work life balance and a great place to learn
I would typically start my day with cases assigned to me which would include (Processing disputes and charge-backs in Visa and Processing Pre-arbs, re-presentment in MasterCard), Monitor real time queues and identify high risk transactions, Identify fraudulent transactions and cancel them from further processing. I have learnt to resolve disputes in favour of the customer and the institution through the biggest network operators VISA and MasterCard. There is great work life balance and also good flexibility of timings at work. I really like challenges and it helps me grow to the next level, i manage a difficult situation at work. I really enjoy the games that we have indoors like table tennis and chess. It helps us have a good break during the day and keeps our mind and body fresh.
Pros
Indoor Games, Free lunches, coffee, fruits, snacks, gym, free use of swimming pool
Cons
Growth

Stressfull but rewarding
Long hours, highly competitive but overall a great place to work especially with other like minded people. The office facilities were fantastic too and so were the people.

Rewarding and challenging place to work.
My experience varied across different areas of the organisation. Some areas had wonderful staff, great culture and challenging and rewarding work. Other areas were more challenging with respect to the work/life balance and the culture. As a whole, a very rewarding experience being part of a successful and driven organisation which values its employees.

Good team, bad management
After working for Macquarie Bank for more than 2 years, I have realised that I lasted that long on the position due to my team. As in every job, there are good and bad days, but if the work atmosphere is good, everything can be done. However, the high level managers were rude with all the employees.

I have nothing negative to report about Macquarie Group.
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

Great people, terrible corporate culture
On an individual basis, I learned a great deal from several team members and clients, but overall I've never worked for a more dysfunctional firm where toxic people are not only allowed but encouraged and promoted.
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
