    A Place for a long term career

    Manager (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsSuncorp is a company with a genuine passion for their people and customers with constant focus on continuous improvement. Suncorp is not afraid to make gutsy decisions and is changing the face of insurance in Australia.

    ConsSometimes business processes hinder rather than help progress but this is becoming less and less common.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing for our people and customers - keep challenging the status quo.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good stable company with a good work life balance.

    Analytics Specialist (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

    ProsThe area in which I work outstanding opportunities for advanced analytics and Data Science. The management are also very humane, something almost never observed in large companies. There are great opportunities for long term development.

    ConsSometimes a bit bureaucratic, probably due to the companies history as a former government business. The senior management are professional managers and don't really necessarily understand the business. They are also following out-of-date paradigms such as outsourcing many IT functions (savvy international companies are now in-sourcing key IT infrastructure, having discovered the hard way the outsourcing was a costly mistake). Also, they are obsessed with cloud offerings without any clear understanding of the risk both to information security as well as operational efficiency (network latency is a major non-controlled issue). IT processes are overly complex, it takes 6 people four weeks to set up an FTP capability. There is also an unhealthy obsession with Agile development methodology, it operates largely as a cult and is deleterious to good development practice (if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail).

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your customers.
