Other Employee Reviews for Telstra

  1. Scaled agile not working.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Work from home options. Flexible working hours. Acceptance of all nationalities, gender, sexual orientation etc.

    Cons

    Scaled agile within IT is not working. Micromanagement - too many managers chasing too few staff. Expected to work overtime for time in lieu does not compensate adequately. Too much red tape required to get anything done. Poor staff retention strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Scaled agile with offshore teams within IT is not working. Communication with offshore teams is difficult due to language, culture, distance and time-zone differences. It causes immense pressure on the onshore staff. We should rather keep specialised teams of onshore co-located staff. This way will result in better quality, less staff churn and lower cost. The hourly rate of labour should not be your main driving factor.
