OK

Senior AP (Former Employee)
North Sydney (Australia)

I worked at MLC

ProsGood brand name. Although not great but the contractor rates are fair. Not so fair permanent packages. Some people are very good to work with.

ConsToo much politics and the level of politics is too cheap. Hint of groupism among colleagues from same ethnic background. Some people lack respect towards peers. Work culture is not global, industry standards are not encouraged especially when it comes to technology. Some highly inefficient and obsolete processes are still followed and most likely would continue in the future. No hope or opportunity for using new or advanced technology.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair rather than prejudiced. Make decisions based on talent, efficiency and results rather than cheap talk. Don't encourage politics at workplace. Encourage and give due respect to subordinates.

MLC

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
North Sydney (Australia)

I have been working at MLC

ProsGood work life balance, you can get time off for personal commitments. The people who work there are friendly and it is a comfortable place to work.

ConsNo real carreer advancement opp, they do not pay well I have not had a pay rise in years and they do not intend to give us one, no overtime given in our pay group even if you have worked over 80 hours that week. They ask us to write up a career advancement plan but do not have budget to train you further.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward your good staff and stop promoting the smooth talkers who do not know what they are doing

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
