    Good if you have no ambition

    Pros

    Work life balance is unlike anywhere else, you will only need to work 3 hrs each day and it doesn't feel like a job at all. Team mates are generally nice There is no stress. The workload is too little Lots of social events like Friday drinks, trivia night, sports Good money for the tiny amount of work done

    Cons

    So much drama between senior managers and general managers, they don't care about your development because they're too busy fighting for their own positions. Don't expect promotions quickly, there are staff who have been there 10 or even 15 years who are stuck on senior analyst HR very slow for anything You will learn nothing here. Your mind will not be challenged or stimulated at all. Come here for retirement Culture varies widely across divisions. Legal is fun, policy is serious, data analytics is ignored, risk is respected, supervision has huge egos but is what APRA is known for. Toxic and slow to change.

    Uninspiring middle management

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work-life balance can be really great unless you are stuck in a BAU-focussed role. Friendly environment

    Cons

    What would be considered easy no-brainer tasks in the private sector can be extremely cumbersome and frustrating at APRA, largely due to inefficient processes and resistance to change at the middle management level, driven by politics and bureaucracy. Career progression is not based on merit. You will see people who joined at the same time at the same level as you outrun you because they have "better" relationships with their senior managers or are a better cultural fit. If you are passionate about data analytics, don't come to APRA, where the team leaders still live under a rock. You will be expected to pick up all the slack nobody else wants to do in the entire organisation. You are only useful when someone needs to appear before the senate. Inclusion and diversity is tokenistic and it's definitely not reflected in many divisions. High turnover
