    Bright teams and leadership but too much internal competition

    Planning Manager (Former Employee) Brisbane, CA

    ProsThe group puts bright people into leadership roles and there's opportunity to move within the business to gain experience and progress your career. Generally there is a pragmatic approach to getting on with the job and adapting to change.

    ConsWith extreme cost focus post-GFC & post-mergers there was way too much internal competition for roles and politics tended to prevail in appointments.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great work/life balance, encouraging environment, nice people

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Brisbane (Australia)

    ProsThe work and life balance was fantastic. The people were trusting and you were able to work from home without feeling like you were being watched. The work was varied and kept things interesting. Company works Agile and does it well mostly

    ConsLots of company changes/restructuring - very disruptive to work in progress. Introduction of Agile into business areas were lacking and in turn meant the IT department were doing a lot of training and coaching for it

    Overall great company but can be over ambitious and has mixed leadership capabilities

    Team Leader (Current Employee) Brisbane (Australia)

    ProsAgile, innovative environment. Great people to work with. Senior IT leadership have a great vision and story to tell. Opportunities to move around in the company. Staff benefits like discounts on insurance and banking products.

    ConsLeadership capabilities (especially middle management) is mixed. Can develop over-ambitious strategic plans which mean staff have to work unpaid/unrewarded overtime to actually deliver. Massive amounts of change where no one can know what everyone else is doing. The successes and abilities of the IT teams are often over-stated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with setting good vision statements but you need to really listen and allow your teams to push back (without punishment) if they are taking on too much.

    Like working at many places in one, great for growth, but a little schizophrenic and you can get stuck in the wrong team

    Solution Architect (Former Employee) Brisbane (Australia)

    ProsLoads of opportunities, and ample support provided for moving around. IT department really starting to shine when I left and sounds like improvements have continued. Great to have the chance to see teams really embracing Agile software development.

    ConsMost people (especially in Brisbane) behave as though it's still a small company even though there are over 10,000 employees and at one point was in the top 20 ASX companies. Lots of things that should be well managed simply are not. Also really struggled with a sense of identity following acquisitions (GIO / Promina) - which was leading to a lot of infighting (although I hear that has improved recently).

    - strong actuarial firm that allows you to learn lots on technical skills
    - a company with great image which boost your ego when you tell others you work for suncorp

    Cons- dont get much of pay rise and stays as it is once you hit the higher band
    - bonuses depends on the company profit. if there's flood occuring in QLD, don't expect attractive bonuses

    Teleclaims - Brisbane

    Team Leader (Former Employee) Brisbane (Australia)

    ProsI thought that the work environment was great and as a whole, management worked hard to promote a fair workplace and to achieve good work/life balance. Their principles and commitment to the claims process was excellent.

    ConsExtreme pressure when the call centre was overloaded with calls (in times of disasters). Catastrophe plans weren't the best.
    Repetitive work
    Their rostering team was awful. Uncaring people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrive to meet employee customer needs a little better

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
