I have been working at Telstra

Pros

People are nice
You can some times senior management. However, not always.
Work Life Balance is great. You do not need to work extremely long hours

Cons

Professional Growth is not very big. However, there are many people in Telstra that have worked in the company for many years. So maybe growth here comes with more time and experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To give younger empolyees more responsiblities and see if they hit the mark. Overall, they are doing well considering the changing times.

    Pros

    Allowed to take on ownership and responsibility of projects
    Flexible Working
    Reasonable pay with good bonus scheme
    Varied job role that will change from project to project

    Cons

    Small company in the UK, and subsequently a lack of genuine promotion opportunities
    Currently selling off a lot of its low margin business - In the short term at least its a business in decline. Likely to reduce headcount further in the next 12 months.
    Quality is often sacrificed in favour of reduced costs, resource and time to deliver
    Training is virtually non existent other than company wide self study programmes (e.g. ITIL)
    Most employees received 0% pay rises over the past 2 pay reviews (Oct 2009, Oct 2010).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your people
    More structured promotions and improve internal recruitment policy
    Are you sure selling off 70% of your customers is the right thing to do? Where is the revenue going to come from?
