    I have been working at SEEK (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at SEEK as an intern (less than an 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

    Very successful business while maintaining casual and fun culture.
    No one talks about 'work-life balance', because it's rarely a problem.
    Management seems to really care about its employees and their well-being.
    Strong commitment to values as well as results.
    Consistent business growth creates career opportunities.

    Cons

    St Kilda Rd location can be inconvenient.
    Still not a very large company, so career paths are not always obvious or linear.
