No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Telstra full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

used to be a good place to work with heaps to learn

Cons

too many restructuring resulting in lost momentum in previously made strategic decisions that are still relevant. middle management (mostly those in Melbourne) thinks the world is revolving around them and are not comfortable (and incapable of) managing staffs outside their own city. they withheld information, have appalling time management skills - hardly on time (at least on average late by 10min) for meetings (including those they are supposed to host) and always go over time, keep moving meetings at the last minute or past the scheduled meeting time. conveniently exclude staffs outside their own city from important meetings and team events.

Advice to Management

none. too hard, they won't listen.

    I worked at Telstra full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    HUGE budgets, great market share, some really smart leaders, endless resources at your disposal

    Cons

    can be somewhat political, slow moving, very bureaucratic & lots of duplication of effort. Too many people doing the same job!

    Advice to Management

    Less top heavy management structure required to reduce duplication

    I worked at Telstra part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly culture among lower employees Always kept busy by customers

    Cons

    Bonus hungry managers Flexibility around shifts are non existent New bonus scheme for employees are not competitive Increased favouritism Double standards

    Advice to Management

    Reward your lower employees individually rather than collectively and managers are getting paid bonuses to 'motivate' employees where rather they're threatening staff to sell products at all costs or risk not having any shifts. Toxic culture by managers to gain bonuses for themselves.
