"CSR advocate"

Review Period:
2010 to 2012

Nab is a strong Corporate Social Responsibility advocate and is heavily involved with giving back to the community. As part of their staff engagement strategy, Nab encourages staff to participate in philanthropy activities and provides all staff with 2 days of paid leave, so that staff can volunteer their services to much needed charitable causes. Staff resourcing is an issue however, and this coupled with tight financial targets and risk management tactics that need to be met, can lead to very unhappy staff - no work life balance.

"Life as a business banker"

Review Period:
2010 to 2011

At the moment, NAB is focusing on growth to be the biggest in Australia for business banking. While they encourage diversity (gender and professional backgrounds), i believe they prefer employing a younger crowd. Good pay and bonus (if you can achieve and if you have a decent portfolio of clients) You get strict targets that need to be achieved in many areas, ie term deposits, sales, customer visits, insurance etc. Plus its expected to get new business all the time and to cold call random people. Also a huge downside is the compliance- its huge and the admin can really get too much! oh and when if comes to your end of year review, the rating system is not very consistent. However, people in the organisation are a fairly intelligent bunch and despite the high pressure environment, people can be quite helpful.
