    Pros

    Great comraderie borne from teams being under immense pressure and little support

    Cons

    No real ongoing support to fulfil expectations

    Advice to Management

    They have been made redundant as expected so advice is to learn from mistakes and dont repeat in new ventures

  2. Working ethics and environment

    Pros

    Great company to work for with many great people who are willing to help. Perfect location in the City, minute from Museum station and Haymarket for lunches.

    Cons

    There is no perfect company in this world! Like many other company, Gen-i also has alot of people that are lazy and do not take responsibilities. Poor management leadership has led to a us taking on Accounts beyond Gen-i's capabilities

    Advice to Management

    Hire Senior management who are local and have knowledge of the Australian market and competitiveness.

  3. Good solid integrator

    Pros

    People, breadth and depth of services, clients, career opportunities, best in market, benefits

    Cons

    Slow moving, too many meetings, no accountability, poor performers got moved rather than removed at times, politics

    Advice to Management

    The culture and values had people want to work at Gen-i and clients choose you. It's now feeling like it was back in the Gattung days - that would be sad if it doesn't get addressed

  6. Constant restructuring

    Pros

    Pretty good company to work for, good perks and overtime pay.

    Generally managers treat you well, but it obviously comes down to the individual.
    Very good at being flexible with work hours.

    Cons

    Constantly in a state of restructuring so job security is not very good. The new CEO has slashed a lot of benefits and generally the feeling around is that this isn't a great place to work anymore.

  7. Long term, been here over 10 years

    Pros

    interesting role with good people around to work with and learn from

    Cons

    over busy, 'transformation' has lightened the personal numbers but customers expect more these days from the remaining team

    Advice to Management

    work out where the next 10 years revenue is coming from, then dedicate staff and time on working out how that's going to be delivered to - and don't just think staff will stay to do more for the same remuneration - there are more options available now than ever before and as niche specialities increase we will not always have the best people internally

  8. Frustrating, Political, Convoluted and a load of internal marketing that just isn't able to be executed.

    Pros

    The biggest game in town

    Cons

    Very little consideration for people that matter

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about the people who make the business what it is, use people who have the experience and have succeeded in other places doing the same thing instead of re-inventing the wheel.

  10. Miserable, all talk no action, do not recognise employee contribution

    Pros

    There are some great emmployees at Gen-i, who make it at least worthwhile to turn up every day. The expectations in terms of performace are quite light so there work is generally easy.

    Cons

    Management do not understand this market, service offerings are disjointyed and it is dificult to find who we are, what we sall and what benefits we can bring to our customers. The talk is big but theaction and application are abysmal. ALl talk and no action.

    Advice to Management

    Get your hands dirty.. Understand that you are dealing with some experienced people who actually talk to each other. and the decisions you make, or do not make. It is nonsensical to to deliver one message to an employer, and a completely differnt message to another, we talk, we know when you are not telling the truth.

  11. No long term prospects

    Pros

    Brand name is great on resume
    Flexible working hours
    Good co workers
    Fairly interesting projects
    Decent to average salary paid

    Cons

    Sales team is ineffective and clueless
    No long term prospects, just stay for a year or two and then jump!

    Advice to Management

    Just come out of Telecom, and Gen-i will be a great place to work again, what with all the troubles of the XT network!
