          I worked at SEEK full-time for less than a year

          Pros

          Office & employee perks are great - breakfast, Friday drinks, flex holidays, flexible work from home arrangements. Relaxed environment. Realistic workloads. Great L&D opportunities.

          Cons

          Lack of career progression. Poor culture in some teams (other teams are great hence the title). Fixed mindset, not open to trying new things or learning from others experience. Entitled with no accountability. Management don't know how to manage bullying, passive aggressive, cliquey high school behaviour. Try to talk to as many people as possible before accepting a role.

          Advice to Management

          Invest in a consistent onboarding program for all teams. Hold people accountable for their actions. Provide managers with conflict management training.
