I worked at Telstra as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

- dedicated people that really believe in their customers and the company
- overall a really friend and professional environment
- lots of short term contracts on offer all the time for top candidates

Cons

- undergoing much change which means lots of job losses
- change is painful and people will naturally resit
- many people contracting short term with no view to permanent
- some major ego maniacs, obviously threatened by change and desperate to secure their roles

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- keep going with the transformation programme, the outcomes will be better for your customers

    I have been working at Telstra full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Offer career progression
    Friendly environment
    Nice offices
    Fairly easy to get a job
    Reasonable pay

    Cons

    People outside the company tend to already have some type of bad opinion sometimes wouldn't be proud to say it's who i worked for
    Redundancies
    Will give you career progression without the pay
    Say they want feedback but when you speak up they make you feel like you are just being negative

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to put more words into actions
    Would be nice if the higher part of the company new more about what the bottom part does everyday instead of what they see on paper

    I worked at Telstra full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good scope for advancing your career, lots of avenues to pursue if your motivated. Managment are generally happy and also encourage study in areas other than your core delivarables to widen your knowledge base.

    Cons

    Large organisation, can feel like your a small cog in a big machine. Although it could feel that way your consistently informed that your contribution is important to the company.
