Its OK - but just OK

Commercial Analyst (Current Employee)
Melbourne (Australia)

ProsIts a stable company with good money coming through the door
People are generally pretty nice - but such a big place can be highly dependant on what team you're in

ConsBig, slow, moving beast. Making real efforts to become more customer centric but its a big ship to turn around. Sometimes I can go for months, doing a lot of analysis, but not feeling like I'm having an impact - on anything

Advice to Senior Managementbreak down teams into smaller more entrepreneurial teams and push authority to them (accept that people will get stuff wrong)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Still a large degree of political play, silos, defending existing arrangements. Needs a massive cultural… Advice to Senior Management: First get some engineers or software professionals on the board.
