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 ManagementAdvice

none. too hard, they won't listen.

    Get experience in Telstra and move to smaller company with better options.
