Good for a time

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Melbourne (Australia)

I worked at Foster's Group

ProsGreat product benefits
If you get the right project, great opportunities

ConsOverly political for it's size
Same levels of justification required for small and large spends
"Immature" environment around governance, IT, risk, etc

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't believe everything your reports tell you. There is more managing upwards than downwards happening in various parts of the business.

Foster's has great people, but needs to lead

IT Management (Current Employee)
Melbourne (Australia)

I have been working at Foster's Group

ProsFree beer (slab) every fortnight

ConsIt's an archaic, siloed structure with little alignment around core values or focus for individual businesses making execution difficult of anything sizeable a big challenge.

Advice to Senior ManagementSort out your culture and corporate alignment. It's not just the IT systems that make doing business with Foster's difficult, it's a lack of focus on the customer and what's best for our shareholders.
