I have been working at Telstra full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Clear market leader
Good pay, perks and general conditions
The company is heading in the right direction and if you can get into one of the growth and focus areas of Telstra you will succeed will into the future

Cons

Big company with lots of people which also means lots of really ordinary people who don't care and are there only to collect pay and go home
Big company lots of divisions and very little collaboration between divisions

Advice to Management

More transparency, the company is going through huge change with lots of people being let go, while this isn't always a good thing employees need to understand whats happening and be able to positions themselves for the future.

    I worked at Telstra as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - dedicated people that really believe in their customers and the company
    - overall a really friend and professional environment
    - lots of short term contracts on offer all the time for top candidates

    Cons

    - undergoing much change which means lots of job losses
    - change is painful and people will naturally resit
    - many people contracting short term with no view to permanent
    - some major ego maniacs, obviously threatened by change and desperate to secure their roles

    Advice to Management

    - keep going with the transformation programme, the outcomes will be better for your customers
