MELBOURNE IT DBS Reviews
Pros – Weekly fruit, great co-workers, great coffee!
Cons – Spartan support personnel, Management shuffle, and must love cubical life.
Advice to Senior Management – Consistence, respect and compensation (Aussie Stock Options not included)!
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Some great people there but there's little sense of where the company is headed. There are so many other places where you can find inspiring and ethical leadership.
Cons – Jobs for the boys, dictatorial, stifling, micromanagement. A small bunch of people dominate the agenda by force of character rather than due to talent or intelligence.

“There are fundamental management and business deficiencies that make this a mediocre company - at best.”
Pros – Health care benefits are very good, and the company provides adequate personal/vacation time.
Cons – The CEO of the AUD $250 million corporation makes all business decisions over $15,000 (VP and directors have a $5k/$2k authorization limit respectively). Revenue targets are all set on a top-down view, not bottom-up market focus. Lack of delegation of authority stifles the business, and is a strong indication of lack of trust in people selected to grow the business. Job candidates only talk to very select personnel during interviews, so get a very rosy outlook which is much different than reality. This results in significant dissatisfaction and extremely high management turn over. The company lacks product management and product marketing discipline. Staffing is bare bones, and no-bench strength. Management is weak and takes offense when challenged on decisions. All middle management positions, new and vacated are filled externally - no promotions from within.
Advice to Senior Management – Major fundamental business changes are required at all levels in order to have any potential of meeting revenue targets, and maintaining the talent necessary for any long-term success.
