    Pros

    The christmas parties are well known to be pretty good. There is a mix of people that you can get along with and some you wont.

    Cons

    Way too much micro management, no trust shown in employees, everything is secret and certain managers like to create a hostile atmosphere to show they are not at fault and hope for infighting. Everything is a tactic. Lies, lies and more lies to the point where you won't believe a single word even the cleaner will tell you. NEVER speak up, I have seen whats happened to those that did and its nasty to say the least. Even anonymous whistleblowers are eventually tracked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try listening to the people. Stop lying to people. Stop the constant meetings and not have time to actually see whats happening.

    Pros

    Fairly flexible start/finish times, campus HQ is different to other workplaces

    Cons

    Optus is purely a political workplace where you cannot trust very few people. Very negative and toxic. The truth is not accepted and ethics are shown the door with a smile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with some respect, all they are doing is their job to look after their families and future too. We don't earn as much as money as you so chill, no one's gonna take that away from you.
