    I have been working at NBN Co full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Work life balance and diverse workforce. Great CEO who walk the talk however more work need to be done in ground level. Great location and facilities

    Cons

    Politics, poor middle management, too many unproductive TSA. TSA are allowed to contract for more than 2 years on high rates which make FTE wonders the benefits of being FTE

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your FTE and stop paying attention to political corrupt TSA. Its sad seeing so many potential hard working FTE leaving nbn. This wont be sustainable in long term. Review TSA hiring policies some of them shouldnt even be hired but get in to the systems because they know someone in the company.

    I have been working at NBN Co full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    some great people, and some interesting technologies if you're in the CDO

    Cons

    pockets of toxic political culture means you have be managing perceptions across your stakeholders as well as delivering. Frequent restructures that don't make particular sense. Areas of the company will be shrinking as the network build approaches completion.

    Advice to Management

    Settle down - a restructure is not the answer to every problem. Value people and their knowledge, there is such a revolving door that the newcomers can't even ask the old timers what's going on, the old timers have moved on or been let go in a restructure.

      The people. Lots of talented and friendly colleagues

      Cons

      HR/P&C dont practice what they preach. Senior manager manages at hands length and blame employees for subsequent lack of engagement.

      Advice to Management

      Review your P&C processes and plan.

      Pros

      Pays well. Great employee benefits

      Cons

      Leaning more and more towards building processes for every single function that you perform. Extreme focus on L2, L3, L4 processes, RACI, Swimlanes, SIPOC, rather than doing the actual work.
