    I have been working at Suncorp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to develop with access to a large array of courses through various mediums. Very flexible work environment which is always striving to become even more flexible. A company which is continuously improving which also means continuous change. Always very people focussed and support their staff and also have some great benefits.

    Cons

    Significant administration work at middle management level. Can be difficult to locate who can assist with certain tasks/roles within the company due to constant changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider impact of timings of projects/initiatives and ensure teams have the support they need to action these as well as their usual day to day roles.

    Pros

    The benefits. The company really invests in their people. Their future focus.

    Cons

    Living in a geographically isolated area limits career moves unless I want to move

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just ask front line staff about blockages, get front line opinions and ideas before change. Have focus groups, use people from around the business. Make our front line staff feel valued. Offer more virtual roles.

    I have been working at Suncorp full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Suncorp is a company with a genuine passion for their people and customers with constant focus on continuous improvement. Suncorp is not afraid to make gutsy decisions and is changing the face of insurance in Australia.

    Cons

    Sometimes business processes hinder rather than help progress but this is becoming less and less common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing for our people and customers - keep challenging the status quo.

    Current Employee - Analytics Specialist  in  Sydney (Australia)

    I have been working at Suncorp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The area in which I work outstanding opportunities for advanced analytics and Data Science. The management are also very humane, something almost never observed in large companies. There are great opportunities for long term development.

    Cons

    Sometimes a bit bureaucratic, probably due to the companies history as a former government business. The senior management are professional managers and don't really necessarily understand the business. They are also following out-of-date paradigms such as outsourcing many IT functions (savvy international companies are now in-sourcing key IT infrastructure, having discovered the hard way the outsourcing was a costly mistake). Also, they are obsessed with cloud offerings without any clear understanding of the risk both to information security as well as operational efficiency (network latency is a major non-controlled issue). IT processes are overly complex, it takes 6 people four weeks to set up an FTP capability. There is also an unhealthy obsession with Agile development methodology, it operates largely as a cult and is deleterious to good development practice (if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers.
