I have been working at Telstra full-time for more than a year

Pros

There are great opportunities to move up and around the organisation.
There is a good work culture, with the workplace being inclusive and friendly.
There is lots of flexibility, in terms of work location and work hours.
The work is generally quite interesting and meaningful.

Cons

There is a holdover from the old days that manifests itself in the organisation having a bureaucratic nature. There are lots of approvals and process that can slow down the pace of work and hinder positive outcomes.
The organisation is sometimes slow-moving, because of its size and culture.
There is still a legacy of a public service mentality among some employees and in some processes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Transform, move away from the public service mentality to a private sector mentality.
