I worked at WiseTech Global

Pros

There is a huge code base, lots of unit testing and continuous integration. Cargowise have had to solve a lot of problems that many other smaller projects just never run into. There is scope to learn more than the usual .net basics if you are interested in participating and delving into the architecture.

Cons

Management communication can be poor sometimes. Location in the middle of a business park means there's not much around at lunch.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate changes to all staff whenever decisions are made, otherwise people just rely on office gossip which is either exaggerated/untrue and causes stress.

    Pros

    Wisetech is a company full of extremely intelligent people globally. One thing you'll find here is a distinct lack of "Average People". When you join (after some interesting cognitive testing) be sure that you will find the very flat structure unique. Where WTG is different is its ability to find within people their key skills and strengths (which that person may or may not n aware of). The result of this is a group of intelligent people doing what they are best at.

    Cons

    The free snacks, coffee, tea and Friday beer'O'clock food (with beer and wine) will perhaps require you to exercise more!

    I worked at WiseTech Global full-time

    Pros

    Free food, beer, occasional trips to customers. Loose atmosphere. Good if you are a developer or sales, bad if you are not. Programmers welcome as long as you have the same ideas as the CEO.

    Cons

    Poor management. No path for personal growth. Not being a developer limits how far you can go in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to customers and qualified employees, hire experienced people who did real work in the freight forwarding industry, not office managers, people who answered phones, or people from other industries that have no relation to freight forwarding or customers. Your way is not the always the right way. Accept faults and weakness to make things better instead of ignoring them and sweeping them under the rug.
