The good things

Their buildings look nice from the outside and they do have a few employee perk programs like 'BankWest Heroes' which you can get points for to redeem things. Some of the people who work there are nice, however not all of them.

The challenges

- The management are only focused on their own development and do little to actually develop their own staff. Some managers actually actively attempt to stop your development progress for their own benefit - You can't trust a thing their senior leadership team say, it's all proganda 'Our strategic pillars' jargon which fails to actually provide any direction to where the company is going. It's a common thought among staff that it's just 'The commonwealth bank' on the inside, with a large number of back end staff now being Commonwealth and only a flashy coat of Orange on the outside - The performance management review process is a joke and aims to ensure you stay within a box, by giving you tasks only your managers can perform in their role, rather than being able to allow you to perform at your best - Their Learning and Development programs are terrible. They don't offer meaningful learning and instead offer boring courses which make you want to self explode - They quite often make skilled staff redudant and keep staff who are underperforming, unsure who is thinking these ideas up - There isn't much on offer in terms of internal development if you are an tertiary educated individual. It seems that uneducated people are put in leadership positions and know little of what they are doing
