I worked at Optus

Pros

Second largest telco in Australia. Great campus and facilities. People are friendly and courteous and seem to enjoy working there.

Cons

Location is a challenge - limited car parking capacity and not much on-street parking. There are buses and the train-station is a good 20 minute walk to campus. A lot of stakeholder management with different groups from all different business units that need to approve projects before they can progress which sometimes stifles innovation, creativity and speed to market.

    Cons

    Targets getting to high
    Commission plan changes to much
    Too much red tape and bureaucracy
    Too much "spin" from Management
    Premium prices but not a premium product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a chance to earn good money.
    Stop relying on the "brand"
    Don't bully partners who want to hire ex Optus staff. If they want to leave, let them go. Otherwise, create a better culture and people will stay!
