    I worked at Suncorp full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Most people you work with are fun and friendly.
    Good work/life balance.
    Plenty of work to be done.
    You will learn a lot about Agile methodology.

    Cons

    You will work with some very annoying legacy systems.
    Upgrade process for technology is terribly slow - You will find yourself wishing you had access to new APIs but unable to use them.

    The employee rating system motivates useless and brown-nosing behavior from staff.
    This is because in order to score well and therefore receive a good bonus you have to do tasks that don't necessarily relate to your job - For example, set up a <Insert Job Role> community. Although the desire to have such contributions from staff is founded, encouraging it via bonus incentives means that staff do work based on how it contributes to their score, not how it benefits the company, their team or project ...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the KRA. It's pointless. I know this is probably naive to say but it is in desperate need of review. There are too many people going unrewarded for fantastic work.
