    I worked at SEEK as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are pretty lenient as an HR Intern; you learn a lot from the other workers; really great foundation for someone who seeks a HR career in the future.

    Cons

    Minimum base bay; sometimes you would find yourself doing nothing; a lot of times you will have to listen at my location the boss would yell at people.

    Pros

    The culture is superb, providing a really good work/life balance.

    There's a lot of young creatives with good ideas and the gender balance is very mixed, which is refreshing.

    Upper management has a really open relationship with staff and there's a lot of opportunities to hear their thoughts and vision.

    Cons

    A very reactive work place. They may be a market leader in Australia, but globally they are chasing the competition.

    Middle management have to much control and give little support to those doing the heavy lifting.

    There's far to much favourtism given to people who are 'liked' by the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Look to drive move inovation

    Pros

    1. The work life balance is excellent. I haven't had trouble fitting in life events during work hours, sometimes even at the last moment.
    2. Once you've proven yourself competent to your team for a few months, you can pretty much get direct/indirect funding for any business/tech idea that you have to benefit SEEK and see it implemented.
    3. There are a lot of smart people at SEEK. If you want to practice influencing smart people to work on cool ideas, this is the place to do it if you land in the right team and prove yourself (by doing a great job).
    4. If you want to learn something new, you usually can take the time for it, but you need to prove yourself first.

    Cons

    1. The St Kilda office location.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    SEEK really looks after its employees and the people and culture are really great.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets quite political at SEEK, there seems to be a lot of judgement that needs to be managed.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more natural, creative discovery of new product ideas.

    the pay is sub-par across the board. lack of cohesion across internal systems. cultural cohesion dampens open discussion on some challenges.
