I loved working at Maitland as they invest a lot into their staff with various training and workshops. Brilliant with life work balance. You have the freedom to attend to personal unforeseen circumstances which is not always allowed at other businesses
Pros
Training staff
Cons
No senior management transformation

Culture is toxic and strict, no social interaction like talking while working. No lunch breaks. Many clicks or silos....no teamwork. People get worked out if they have an opinion. Opinions of staff are not considered. Management enjoy abusing their power of authority and love nitpicking or fault finding.
Pros
Market- related salaries
Cons
Poor mgt, no collaboration with staff and long hours.

Do daily payments for clients who disinvest from our unit trust funds
Help my colleagues process data from clients in order to meet certain deadlines during the day.

Load prices and rates into system then kick batches off so that the system can process all information that were processed during the day.

The culture at work is very team orientated

Management were very relaxed as staff took ownership of their responsibilities and duties.

The hardest part of my job was the stress that came with meeting deadlines,as my work were very deadline driven.

The most enjoyable part of my job were resolving clients queries

Long Working hours expected with little to no increases. Not overtime paid and if any is paid it would be after a lengthy fight.

Management does not in-act changes put in by employees for their betterment

I have been employed at Maitland for just under a year and I am extremely unhappy with the work environment. Nit-picking superiors. Forced overtime. Denied leave. You will not survive if you do not have a thick skin. Cannot trust your co-workers. Lack of processes (which change overnight). Too many fingers in one pot make for delayed turnaround times. Zero work-life balance. Have I learnt anything while at Maitland? No. The hardest part of the job is having to force myself to go to the office. Most enjoyable pat of the job is leaving at the end of the day.

A typical day at work was very competitve. I learned to never take the objection of one call into the next. management was very encouraging when I was having a off day.the moral of the work was very good. the hardest part of the job was tring the leader of the team from month to month.The most enjoyable part of my job there was the great bonuses I received for over achievement.
Pros
special occasions free lunches.
Cons
temporary

Its a dog show (because I cant say s word) - not sure how they are still in business. dysfunctional IT teams, no collaboration, teams operate in silo's, no trust/respect among teams, broken processes. plenty of learning opportunities but some rotten apples should be shown the door as well as the useless dinosaurs that do the bare minimum and are there just for a paycheck. management is unable to fix the culture because they are too concerned about their bottom line. hardest part is having to show up for work. most enjoyable part is when the day is over.

I am a finance-intern in finance control department in the day-to-day basis I am busy with the reconciling of the accounts of the holding companies, extracting trial balances and populating bank recons. In the month-end, I must ensure that accounts balances and prepare net settlements for each entity working hand in hand with my senior financial accountant. We have weekly meetings with my team to ensure that works done in time, the department is a very busy department but I have managed to control my stress level and managed to use my time effectively.

The company has lots of potential for people who like to take on a challenge. However the experiences differ across the company depending on the role you have, the manager you have and the department you are in.

Some people love the job and area they are in


Others totally hate it.


Biggest issue is that there are poor or no bonuses
Pros
Opportunity to learn
Cons
No bonuses

The culture is something to get used to.

Do not include managers in decision making, nor do they inform them.


No accountability.
