    Former Employee - Customer Service Manager in Sydney (Australia)

    I worked at Suncorp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for young upcoming super stars prepared to put in long hours
    Pays well (or in line with market)
    The new structure will be great in a year or two, but not quite ready yet

    Cons

    Currently in a bit of disarray as everyone is still coming to grips with their new roles - give it a year or so when a bit more organised.
    Many duplicate roles leading to confusion of accountabilities and ownership.
    Long standing loyal employees with a lot of knowledge & history released.

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with your teams. Listen to their feedback.
