I worked at Optus full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great place to work when the company was in its build and re-invention phases
I loved the challenges and the trust the company placed in me to overcome them

Cons

Terrible place to work when the company put in place incompetent and self-centred leaders
The fact is that Optus employees engagement percentage has declined to an irrecoverable 20%

Advice to ManagementAdvice

SingTel has finally relegated Optus from what was perceived as a significant telecommunications company to what will be perceived as just another Hutchison Telecom failure. There will not be any war cries like "Yes" or "Fight for fair competition" coming from Optus anymore.

    An exciting and rewarding environment that really satisfies ambition, but mistakes are frowned upon with a guillotine!

    I have been working at Optus

    Pros

    Fantastic products, great incentive programs, dynamic management, fun young team environment.

    Cons

    Promotions are for the 'in people' that spend weekends with their managers. First time mistakes are not dealt with lightly but rather with hasty retrenchment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ethical human resource policies. Fairness, equal opportunity and offering second chances.

    No opinion of CEO
