Great Work Life Balance
The company has great work life balance and flexibility - the team allows different working hours outside the core work hours.
Great work culture and good people
Challenging and had plenty of variety. Worked closely with many mid-to-large private equity firms focused on investments in Asia Pacific.
Great working culture
A fun and productive environment with great people to work with. We would have our morning team meetings for a quick few minutes and have an action plan for the day and address any issues. The rest of the day was focused on daily responsibilities and tasks as we try meet our KPIs. The most enjoyable part of the day was our morning huddles where we all get to catchup as a team.
Good culture of team
Our team had a great culture and we worked well together, however within the banks departments there was not the same interaction and support. It become a fight for survival and our team was disbanded due to one General Manager opposing our work in his department
ProsGood culture of working environment
ConsVery inclusive environment and a daily fight for survival
Productive, Flexible and Diversified
A great culture within the workplace amidst a demanding environment, A thoroughly enjoyable and passionate atmosphere from a team perspective. I personally had a great rapport with colleagues and business units alike, and also took pride in being a constant point of reference whenever assistance was required, being reliable, dependable and conscientious, whilst upholding the organisation's commitment to customer service excellence. Communication and collaboration were imperative to sustain customer satisfaction, professionally maintained as a daily priority. Managing a reasonable work/life balance was definitely a highlight, fitting in outdoor lunchtime exercise whether it would be running, bike riding or playing social touch footy and basketball, or else regular indoor activities such as table tennis in the recreation room, reading newspapers/magazines/books in the office library during occasional standard breaks. I learned a great deal of resilience, perseverance and adaptability throughout the complexities of my specific role and tasks, gaining confidence and knowledgeable skills as per self-development, hence my longevity and experience being a personal achievement in itself despite my minimal qualifications having never obtained a degree/diploma, beforehand.

Good balance of benefits
CBA is a great place to work and provides a good balance of challenge, lifestyle, compensation and culture. Job opportunities are quite easy to find if you know where to look and what you are after, and advancement is treated pragmatically.
There are a few (well publicised) instances where management have failed in their duties, but at its core it is a top-tier organisation where its people are respectful, knowledgeable and know how to run a business sustainably.
Didn't like being tied constantly to a desk. Was also in another state, to fill in time before studying.
ProsGreat staff facilities
