    Former Employee - Operations  in  Sydney (Australia)
    Former Employee - Operations in Sydney (Australia)

    Pros

    Always the people make the place worth while. They did have a flexible working model and were trying to improve the culture

    Cons

    Homophobic and misogynistic. At the time managers had a blind eye approach if they were not directly involved. There was a lot of upheaval with an organisation that was undergoing transformation. However their appeared to be a self serving approach from senior management at the time. Very little support for innovation or progressive business approaches

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the path of transformation but exercise integrity with your words and actions. It will create a cohesive and productive working environment if you stop the sabotage to protect your possitions.

    Former Employee - Interaction Designer in Sydney (Australia)

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of great people who we're really talented and committed. I learned from my peers while I was there.

    Cons

    Projects went from super important and urgent to not as important as the next shiny thing.
    I didn't learn from senior management or get much support during the tough times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your staff to be their best.

    Pros

    Few to none.... tHIS COMPANY WITH dIRECtv IS NOT A GOOD eXPERIENCE....

    Cons

    As reference to their DirecTV account, the initial training is adequate. But then they dump immediately into what they call "nesting", which is live calls with what is very minimal, and inadequate support. If you fail to meet their AHT (Average Handle Times). you are let go. I do not recommend this company under any circumstances...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove your "nesting", and build a side-by_side program with an experienced agent. This will increase your new agent retention by an amazing amount...

    Pros

    nothing really I hate every thing there

    Cons

    It is very political environment, they are not professional and can't handle any criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be fair and honest. Also get rid of your current middle management team, there are not good and all the employees know about that. I've not heard anything but bad stuff from people who are working there.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Sydney (Australia)

    Pros

    Very friendly workplace, led by good management. Very good and experienced editors. IT area just went through a major upgrade. Program was well run, delivered an ERP on-time and on-budget by CTO.

    Cons

    Old fashioned leadership. Need to upgrade their views especially when challenged by digital technologies. Although IT has been upgraded, old ways of doing things need to be abandoned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that digital technologies are here to stay and will expand into print.

    Pros

    Journos and media a fun culture. Loved my time there until the industry collapsed.

    Cons

    Lack of commercial nous. Journos still don't get digital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that get digital. Still have old fogey stogy politics and people in place.
