    Pros

    The people are really great to work with, idea and knowledge sharing, willingness to give a hand if required. The work can be really interesting.

    Cons

    Empire building at higher levels of management has caused problems, the seeming lack of willingness to do what is best for the company as a whole over protecting individual domains.
    Problems with being an Australian cog in an international company interferes with gaining Australian opportunities.
    An apparent lack of interest in getting smaller work, only going for big work does not help with keeping teams going when big projects transition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the company as a whole, as management you need to look at the bigger picture and stop having p*ssing competitions over your head count. Don't be afraid to think smaller, smaller opportunities can either be built or provide stepping stones to bigger opportunities through skilling our workforce.

    Pros

    good benefits, above average pay

    Cons

    management, quotas, lack of good lead gen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if there was a greater investment made in the sale team. Areas for investment include better customer support, better lead generation and more sales tools.
