    I worked at Gen-i Australasia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teamwork based job. Heaps to learn about in terms of experience and exposure. Good perks and supportive environment. No roster just fixed hours.

    Cons

    Management very old style. Mid management usually puts us down as feels intimidated by our skills and future advancement might overtake them off their seats

    Advice to Management

    Pucker up. Think in terms of company instead of self benefit. Invest in your assets which is the people and we would reward back by doing more

    Pros

    Big Company, Opportunity to grow, working with large customers and lots of support from others.

    I enjoyed my time working for Gen-i it was a really good experience and I learned lots and made great connections.

    Pros

    Great company to work for with many great people who are willing to help. Perfect location in the City, minute from Museum station and Haymarket for lunches.

    Cons

    There is no perfect company in this world! Like many other company, Gen-i also has alot of people that are lazy and do not take responsibilities. Poor management leadership has led to a us taking on Accounts beyond Gen-i's capabilities

    Advice to Management

    Hire Senior management who are local and have knowledge of the Australian market and competitiveness.

    Pros

    People, breadth and depth of services, clients, career opportunities, best in market, benefits

    Slow moving, too many meetings, no accountability, poor performers got moved rather than removed at times, politics

    Advice to Management

    The culture and values had people want to work at Gen-i and clients choose you. It's now feeling like it was back in the Gattung days - that would be sad if it doesn't get addressed

    Pros

    Pretty good company to work for, good perks and overtime pay.

    Generally managers treat you well, but it obviously comes down to the individual.
    Very good at being flexible with work hours.

    Cons

    Constantly in a state of restructuring so job security is not very good. The new CEO has slashed a lot of benefits and generally the feeling around is that this isn't a great place to work anymore.
