    I worked at MEAT & LIVESTOCK AUSTRALIA as a contractor

    Pros

    I can honestly say this was one of the most enjoyable roles I’ve had in a very long time. Strong community of passionate employees, flexible working, interesting projects, and a general feel that you are part of something much larger.
     Location is very good, short walk to public transport and decent cycling facilities.

    Cons

    I’ve noted that on Glassdoor there were a few negative comments around HR. I suspect that is down to one individual. Every organisation has its bad apples.

    Advice to Management

    1. MLA exists for the levy holder. You must treat them with more respect.
    2. Stop picking fights it does not serve to be deliberately antagonizing fellow collaborators, ministers, and the private sector


  2. "Avoid if you are in IT"

    Pros

    You might get to work on something interesting in the agriculture space which is very different from other industries.

    Cons

    IT is completely taken for granted, under resourced, the continual expectation of a steady stream of miracles to keep their infrastructure running, no real project management skills in middle management. The only part of the company which is over resourced is HR.

    Advice to Management

    Get some help, pay for proper project management skills even if it's a central pool to keep the middle managers in check.

  3. "Good company"
