    Pros

    Work environment is modern, comfortable and bright. There is a lot of work to do. It is a totally full on environment. People are generally friendly and helpful. Flexible working times - you can come in between 7am and 7pm. Working at home is permitted if you can create a work space at home. There is support for campus activities , gym, toastmasters, weight watches , mardi gra etc

    Cons

    Bonus and salary increased is based on your Personal Development Review. This is skewed so that out of 5, a base is 4' lower then that is trouble .The review is based on a bell curve with respect to the other people in the team rather than on how good you are. So you might want to move to a bad team if you are in the bottom of a good team to get a higher bonus and salary increased. Promotion is limited because the structure in very flat. Optus pay for the role you are in rather than how experienced you are. It Management don't listen to their employees, very little communication in the it service operations silos. A lot of I.T is being outsourced, as is expected these days, however it management don't understand what is being out sourced , impacts on customer contracts or breaches of confidentiality , so this is leaving customers exposed and employees hanging while the next step is worked not. No planning Work can be monotonous after a few years unless you get promoted or move sideways to do new stuffs.

    Advice to Management

    Kevin and the new branding is a great change of direction, but this is now being hamstrung by the Singtel boat anchor. A purge of middle management needs to continue to modernise the culture
