    I worked at Suncorp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The group puts bright people into leadership roles and there's opportunity to move within the business to gain experience and progress your career. Generally there is a pragmatic approach to getting on with the job and adapting to change.

    Cons

    With extreme cost focus post-GFC & post-mergers there was way too much internal competition for roles and politics tended to prevail in appointments.

    Great job opportunities and career progression.

    Pros

    Discounts on financial products.
    Flexible working arrangements. Work from home available.

    Cons

    Middle management
    Too much internal fighting and stress.
    Red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Either fully embrace a new way of working or stop altogether. Too many decisions made to suit last decade's way of working.

    Pros

    Great diversity of people, encourages women in the workplace. Interesting project work, forward thinking software development opportunities.

    Cons

    Can get lost in corporate beurocracy. Some middle management don't show a lot of interest in career goals of technical people. Not a lot of opportunities for technical career development.

    Advice to Management

    Hierarchical management structure gets in the way of innovation. Geographically disconnected teams don't work well. Provide technical career progression paths.

    Pros

    It is the best place to work. The values of suncorp and the work environment is one of the best in Australia.

    Cons

    Some of their locations are in regional areas which might make it diffucult for some people

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend them to give more attention on employees growth. The more the employee feels he has a chance of succedding the more he would work better.
