    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at BT Financial Group for less than a year

    Pros

    Being part of Westpac bank, cool office and location, generally good colleagues and work life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of permanent job opportunities, contracts were extended very late or with less than a couple of weeks notice. Even senior managers didnt seem to have control over it. Contracts were short and extended by a few months only each time despite doing a great job consistently.

    Advice to Management

    Do the decent thing: provide at least two months notice to any contract staff about contract extension or termination.

    Pros

    BT has always had a real international feel to it. This has given employees at BT great international working opportunities. They also have a good local culture
