    I worked at Realestate.com.au full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent culture, okay benefits (great parental leave). Flex really a token benefit. As a rank and file employee I think it would be an amazing place to work.

    Cons

    If you’re in a leadership role then brace yourself. Unless you’re can work 70 hours a week then it’s not the place for you.

    ELT lacks authenticity, relatively good at face value however, most hyper ambitious and therefore ultimately disfunctional as a group.

    Pros

    Young vibrant culture internationally. Colleagues work closely together. Some markets are genuinely trying to win in market. Move to get nicer offices.

    Cons

    M&As caused organizational structure disruption. Structurally it’s obviously not working. Lack of regional experience, many of ego trips and disruptions local go to market agility. Lack of local market experience yet trying to pretend they know what’s going on.

    Advice to Management

    Please give less authority to your product team. It’s meant to be collaborative, you need that to develop the best product. Hire people with ACTUAL regional experience. They are making so much rookie mistakes while on their ego trips!

    I worked at Realestate.com.au full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn on the job, adapt and evolve
    Lots of great facilities
    Well paid
    Good tech

    After just 3yrs I came away from this role with skills I'd have taken a decade to acquire anywhere else. It's an intense work environment (in a positive way).

    Cons

    Culture changed with new CEO - it's now more corporate than it was when I started. Lots of 2nd level management hires since then are more style than substance
    Rapid growth means less people to know well, made it harder to get things done.
    A level of hypocrisy when it comes to behaviour expected by staff versus senior managers
    Increasingly, the ranks of the senior management are emotionally reactive and vindictive (decisions made on instinct, rather than facts or data)
