    Pros

    Very broad product range and lots of opportunities to be exposed to different technical disciplines. If you want to move disciplines it is easy to transition into a new field.
    Generally good sales management, with the usual individual exceptions.
    Pay is pretty good for the moderate effort and commitment required.

    Cons

    A lot of people who have been there too long and are institutionalised.
    No real return for hard work - the Telstra way is to coast along at a 'pretty good' level, because there is no real incentive to move from 'pretty good' to 'very good'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good 'up or out' policy would help clear the place out, but it wouldn't be implemented properly.

    Generally ok, you could see areas of success and positivity but also lots of ordinary people and performance.

    Pros

    Clear market leader
    Good pay, perks and general conditions
    The company is heading in the right direction and if you can get into one of the growth and focus areas of Telstra you will succeed will into the future

    Cons

    Big company with lots of people which also means lots of really ordinary people who don't care and are there only to collect pay and go home
    Big company lots of divisions and very little collaboration between divisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency, the company is going through huge change with lots of people being let go, while this isn't always a good thing employees need to understand whats happening and be able to positions themselves for the future.
