    I have been working at NBN Co full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent salaries, constant shifts in structure open up opportunities for growth and upskilling, genuine focus on employee engagement, has had one of the best responses to Covid-19 I have seen

    Cons

    As a company that has and will continue to downsize now that the network is built, your job is almost always at risk and you need to be incredibly confident in what you bring to the company to not be consistently dreading losing your job.

    Pros

    Positive environment and inclusive culture. Focus on diversity and flexibility for employees. Great staff retention levels.

    Cons

    Flexible workplace policy wasn’t consistently applied before COVID and only advantaged select employees depending on individual manager policy and culture. Frustrating at times due to silos and buck passing.
