    Pros

    The people are great, really supportive and friendly. They are really committed to diversity and supporting their employees. Senior management is great at setting and communicating strategy

    Cons

    Very much a siloed organisation. Middle management are busy making things harder for employees and don't trust them. Lots of pressure to work 60+ hours a week.

    Pros

    Many of the lower level people who work here are very nice and the pay tends to be above rate.

    Cons

    There's no.business intelligence applied to any thing. They seem to just try random stuff as per some managers whim which the yes men are too scared to challenge. Whether it works or not the CMA. Team goes in to overdrive and it gets spun as success. A real screw up might well get you a yearly award By the way, those awards always go to people who appear to just be doing their jobs. Women are actively promoted above more experienced men and skills and experience have basically no value when it comes to appointments, as they'll just hire some one external anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. They're getting their.pay outs, they know what they're.doing.

    Pros

    The pros for this organisation are its people, the opportunities for development and training (which are wide and varied) There is a focus on systems thinking - which comes to the fore in an emergency, because the systems and processes are embedded Flexibility is high and there is a focus on diversity

    Cons

    The business tends to operate in silos which can make achieving the optimal result a challenge

    Advice to Management

    Management need to be more visible in the field rather than just sending messages from the Sydney office

    Pros

    Ability to manipulate benefits and situations to suit yourself and promote your own "worth".

    Cons

    Managed by textbook - all the management theories are thrown at employees but rarely is genuine good management evident. Promotions are given based on whether or not you fit into the right "click".

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire based on theory or on who plays golf with the right people - hire people with proven skills and abilities.
