Featured Review

Former Employee - Graduate Program Manager

I worked at Qantas full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Culture is constantly improving. They are focusing more and more on flexibility, equality, diversity and inclusivity.

Cons

Some managers who’ve been there for a long time have antiquated leadership styles. Can come across as a bit of a ‘boys club’.

Advice to Management

Foster early talent into leadership pathways.
