Former Employee - General Manager in Melbourne (Australia)
Former Employee - General Manager in Melbourne (Australia)
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Some very good people. No real shortage of money for projects. Opportunity for professional development. The very good redundancy provisions for all staff.

Cons

Very uncertain environment. Ongoing reductions in headcount. Too many time servers desperate to hang on. The vast edifice of approvals and processes to check the checker

Advice to Management

Clean out the top levels of management in the technology and IT groups. The senior leadership team is seen as being very remote from the ordinary workers.

    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Availability of tools, great people and ability to move across the organization. The upcoming changes in the management and culture combined with the new direction of the company seem very promising

    Cons

    There are a number of silos across the company and it is a challenge to remove these barriers to facilitate high perfromance.

    Advice to Management

    David leadership and his team are doing some really good work. But more needs to be done to change management culture in Operations. Often it appears that Enterprise & Govt is driving the company.
