Pros

Met some hard working and good people.

Cons

Lack of management support, lack of growth opportunity and communication throughout the company. It seems management did not take time to care about the employees.

Advice to Management

Communicate and listen to your employee feedback. Show that you care about what they say and take the time to promote from within.

    I worked at Melbourne IT, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Incredibly smart development and service people.

    Cons

    Management was sometimes disconnected from workforce, and more often disconnected from customer needs and the products they wanted.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer service to get the most out of the amazing development team.

    I worked at Melbourne IT, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    You get to work with the latest Microsoft technology, and all facets thereof.
    You can work from home occasionally.
    They mandate that you obtain Microsoft certification in your speciality.
    They provide MSDN membership for technical staff.
    You are paid for scheduled on-call rotation, but given time-off-in-lieu instead of overtime pay.
    There is no waiting in line in the womens bathroom. Ever.

    Cons

    This is the worst place I have ever seen for women in technology.
    They have a very complex environment yet provide no training in how to use it (sink or swim mentality). You are not allowed to ask many questions.
    The culture is do "what is right for the company" not "what is right for the customer".
    You should never expect your manager to have your back, unless you are one of the boys.
    They mandate that you obtain Microsoft certification so they can achieve a corporate discount. Training is to be done on your own time.
    Your expected availability is 24x7x365 (mobile phone and laptop provided).
    Their inner team culture is one of competition rather than cooperation.
    If an improvement suggestion comes from the wrong person, it is ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Do not ignore the complaints that staff present. You are ripe for a lawsuit.
