    I worked at Sensis full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Apart from the people I was in the trenches with nothing.

    Cons

    Managers do not listen or take feedback on board. Qualifications do not mean anything, it's more who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "cool kids" clique of managers and team leaders who seem to hate doing their jobs.

      I worked at Sensis full-time

      Pros

      Great group of people to work with, who genuinely care about colleagues. This gets you through the hard times. Some good opportunities to learn new skills within the company, but this was more so when I started with the company. Well known Australian brands (Yellow Pages and White Pages).

      Cons

      Hard to get passionate about the brands and making a difference when things are always getting cut. Whether it’s people or resources. Constant redundancies, leaving a negative and toxic work culture. Small group of employees who are simply waiting around for a redundancy. Overworked and understaffed.
