      Poor decision personally to join such an unstable organisation

      Nov 15, 2018 - Principal Consultant/Account Director 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Free training & certification but not in areas of tech that will ben fit your career or personal growth Growing global company and good presence in the Testing market (only in some regions of Australia & NZ)

      Cons

      - Senior management and directors in each region have no clue how to progress into being the global organisation they could be - ISTQB is the wholey grail, Planit are so far behind even their smaller competitors in each country and state - no progression both personally or professionally - the great people they have who work 40/50/60 hours per week are never recognised - annual bonus isnt even worth the tax, even as a principal or above you get less than $5,000 bonus per annum! - HR department don't really know or understand a grwat deal with regards to legislation etc, they are never on time for any meetings, and ignore emails and phone communication, often add words and comms for the sake of being heard and add very little value to any processes. - Business doesn't support the emerging technologies in the technical world and this will have them left behind - Heads of most disciplines also add very little value (Agile/DevOps/Innovation/CTO)

      Not somewhere I could recommend in good conscience

      Apr 11, 2016 - Software Tester, Consultant in Wellington, Wellington
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You may get to work with a wide range of people, with all sorts of difference experiences to learn from If you haven't worked for a consultancy before then this is somewhere you could get consultancy experience If you're the 'right fit' for the company, you may well have a wide-range of career and earning options made available to you once you've proven your metal Free training options, just so long as it's one of the courses Planit offer, and you're not on a client site

      Cons

      You better like the 'ISTQB' way of things, because that's how the company models itself from the top down The way you are treated will vary greatly from moment to moment, depending on how much money you are making or might make at any given moment... you might be golden one week, and forgotten the next Don't expect the company to invest much time or money in you or your colleagues

      Pros

      If you want to shift your career into testing, Planit is the company for you. Free trainings, certifications and graduate programme.
