    I worked at Telstra full-time


    Good work life balance, and lots of options to work remotely when needed. They set you up with basic equipment, but for a telecommunications company, they could improve. Opportunity for travel. Interesting initiatives.


    The BIGGEST con of working at Telstra, are DEFINITELY the COMPLETELY unprofessional, rude, arrogant, passive aggressive behavior that are exhibited by many of their employees. Apparently a lot of the "old-timers" and even Senior Management, GM's in particular, act in a way that is COMPLETELY unacceptable. Even my children are better behaved! And it's unfortunate that this behavior is actually rewarded by this organisation, because it is seen to be "getting results" and many of these GM's win recognition in the form of awards, but the only reason that they got these so-called initiatives in, was because they bullied, harassed and condescended on the people below them to force their own agenda. And many times this is at the expense of other people or teams within the company. It is completely unbelievable. It is unacceptable to have such a poisonous working environment where people and teams that exist within the same organisation, and who should be working together, are aggressively pitted against each other and actively seeking ways to dismantle the good work that is being done in other teams. It is absolutely OUTRAGEOUS. GM's - IN WRITING - say things like "you've obviously missed the point" "we're not getting anywhere" "you're wasting my time" when you've CLEARLY understood but they aren't hearing what they want to hear. THOSE ARE NOT THE WORDS OF A PROFESSIONAL . They are the words of a petulant child who can find no other way to resolve conflicts in a professional and productive manner. So disappointed with an organisation that could be doing great things. There are SOME great people there, and funding there to really make a difference. It's unfortunate that they keep around such poisonous, petty individuals who I would be ashamed of if they were my children.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT reward petulant, passive aggressive, rude, unprofessional and condescending behavior. You are creating a poisonous working environment, negative culture, the good people will leave for better opportunities and an opportunity to work with ACTUAL professional and talented likeminded people and you will just be forced to continue hiring contractors to fill the void of the good people you allowed your senior management to drive away because results are more important to them than the well being of the team and ultimately the organisation, as they drive these individuals away.
