    Great experience; good environment and some great people

    Former Intern - Human Resources Intern in New York, NY
    Former Intern - Human Resources Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at SEEK as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are pretty lenient as an HR Intern; you learn a lot from the other workers; really great foundation for someone who seeks a HR career in the future.

    Cons

    Minimum base bay; sometimes you would find yourself doing nothing; a lot of times you will have to listen at my location the boss would yell at people.

    Pros

    SEEK really looks after its employees and the people and culture are really great.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets quite political at SEEK, there seems to be a lot of judgement that needs to be managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more natural, creative discovery of new product ideas.

    I have been working at SEEK

    Pros

    People at seek are approachable and open. There is of course politics everywhere but there seems to be less of it here than most places. Its a successful company with an optimistic outlook

    Cons

    Has the feel of a family run business sometimes. Which is mostly good, but sometimes means decisions are made without a clear line of sight or responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you're doing. This challenge will be harder and harder to achieve as the business grows but it is fundamentally what will give the business an advantage in the market place and continue to make it a great place to work.

    I have been working at SEEK

    Pros

    Sound fundamental business with good future
    Clear strategy
    Market leader
    Great, passionate and inspiring people!!!

    Cons

    Flat structure - little room for promotion
    In adequate incentives - the big money is for very few!
    Delusions of honesty
    Tough to leave!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please delegate decisions to empower staff much more - particularly operational decisions
    Have a clear and agreed operational plan. No problems if that changes but there would be efficienies if we had a base case plan to work from
    Do more, analyse less
    Share the huge profits more
