Pros
  • Work/life balance, flexible arrangements, high level of exposure (in 10 reviews)

  • I thought that the work environment was great and as a whole, management worked hard to promote a fair workplace and to achieve good work/life balance (in 5 reviews)

Cons
  • I rate it low this time because we sustained significant low pay rise regardless of consistent good company and personal performance (in 2 reviews)

  • Introduction of Agile into business areas were lacking and in turn meant the IT department were doing a lot of training and coaching for it (in 3 reviews)

    Pros

    The group puts bright people into leadership roles and there's opportunity to move within the business to gain experience and progress your career. Generally there is a pragmatic approach to getting on with the job and adapting to change.

    Cons

    With extreme cost focus post-GFC & post-mergers there was way too much internal competition for roles and politics tended to prevail in appointments.

    Pros

    Amazing company with fantastic benefits! A place where going to work feels like being part of a family. I love working for Suncorp. They have helped me to learn and increase my skills throughout my career and I look forward to many more years with them.

    Cons

    This might seem hard to believe, there are no cons to working at Suncorp. I cannot speak more highly of the company. They are very focused on their people and ensuring they get a work/life balance and are happy in their roles. If you think you might want to only stay for a

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing - a fantastic company with great people and high values.

    Pros

    Suncorp is very flexible with its work arrangements which allows me to work from home. As I live just over an hour from the office this has been life changing. With a strong leadership team that focusses on supporting and promoting career opportunities there is lots of room for growth within the brand if that's what you want to do. The atmosphere in the offices is great, everyone is helpful and friendly, and they're always kept very clean and tidy with no obvious health and safety risks. For those all about the money, they offer extra for working weekends and evenings, and often email the consultants offering extra shifts at overtime rates when it's busy.

    Cons

    The only issue I've had is inflexibility of hours, however, this is just because of the award that I'm on. I know that I could switch but that would likely involve moving closer to work which I'm not prepared to do.

    Pros

    The ability to have a great work/life balance is awesome! The opportunities with Suncorp are endless with the ability to gain some great career skills for life as well as work.

    Cons

    Pay structure compared to other banks is not as good - understandable being a smaller bank.

    Advice to Management

    Relaxing the targets a little would be a good start - just wishing :) Have the BM's trained to be all rounders would be fantastic especially in Lending!

    Pros

    Suncorp have looked after me over my nearly 19 years. I have had diversity to move roles, change shifts to suit work & home balance and now I have the ideal work from home saving travelling daily 2 hours to and from work. I love Suncorp. Plus the staff benefits with home loans, insurances and all sorts is wonderful.

    Cons

    Branch consultant work is too demanding . and the support was not there for my husband who had to go or would have to be dismissed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be wonderful positive and empathetic. Keep up the reward and recognition. Senior management keep in touch with the front line people, we love that.

    Pros

    Talented group of technical specialists. Exposure to cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    Company in the middle of major outsourcing with ruthless execution. Overworked employees are being supplemented with outsourced resources. Seems to be an unofficial policy of make life difficult for existing operational staff so they leave of their own accord - removing any redunandy payouts.

    Advice to Management

    Less ruthless corporate culture.

    Cons

    only con would be sitting so much, but goes hand in hand with the role

    Advice to Management

    Suncorp, and its growth has been incredible since i started employment in August 2014. The company has expanded and accommodated the needs of the insured especially with so many natural hazards. I am proud to say i work for Suncorp, and embrace the change that happens everyday, to help put the customer at the forefront and be a leader in the insurance industry, keep up the fantastic work

    Pros

    Conglomerate. Customer focussed. Lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Aggressive. Ruthless. Political. Not a meritocracy. If you are liked you go far. If not, you are squeezed out. It's not always about the optics and the messaging.

    Advice to Management

    Be more even handed. There's lots of talent - not just the extraverts. Suncorp is not a place for introverts. It's toxic for them.
