    Pros

    This was a nice place to work, having been amalgamated from several smaller companies, it still had flexible and non-buraeucratic work practices whilst having resources to fund major projects.

    Cons

    Since leaving, company has been bought by McDonalds of Telco industry; cheap, fast, but not good.
    Read up on TPG.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All senior management have changed in the past few years so this is irrelevant.

    Pros

    Good coworkers and work life balance, however this is changing with TPGs acquisition of AAPT

    Cons

    Lack of clear direction by management even when an employee requests it. Executives are not all on the same page & do not listen to employee feedback. All action is purely reactive to circumstances & there is no proactive analysis & implementation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TPG management need to treat employees like people instead of micro managing (eg log in log off requirement). AAPT management need to actually do some "management" instead of just being a "yes man" to upper management. Manager also need to focus more on people management, training, motivational techniques ect

    Pros

    People are friendly with many well skilled people. The salary package was good, and the life/work balance was also good.

    Cons

    Initially started to plan for long term and large stratigic projects with our business customers, but then reverted back to a transactional focus on just getting carriage and PSTN services in the door. A race to the bottom. Some of the GM's got the message, but due to internal executive politics ended up managing the company for what looked like a sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to invest in the business to succeed if you're serious about the ICT environment and you want to avoid competing on just traditiuonal carriage services because this will lead to price erosion and a race to the bottom.
