Does Medibank offer employee discounts?

Pros

You get a major discount on your PHI. But apart from that, honestly nothing.

Cons

It's a terrible company, the turnover of employees is unreal. I started with more than 10 and ended with less than 3 within 6 months. If you're applying, just know what you're getting into, if they promise you things, get it in writing or else you won't see it because they got "overruled" every time

Advice to Management

Put people before profits.

You get a major discount on your PHI.

How are senior leaders perceived at Medibank?

Pros

great building Flexible working Nice people Next to Southern Cross - easy to access

Cons

Salaries well below market Senior leadership team made up of white privileged bullies Those that work hard are rarely rewarded You need to be conniving to get ahead They say 'bring your whole self to work' but if you do you are bullied into conforming in order to be given any kind of opportunity

Advice to Management

Take a look at the bland thick layer of senior leadership in the P&C team - if you want to cut costs (which you clearly do) start there - it is the most top heavy and hierarchical structure I have ever seen, not to mention ineffective. Practice what you preach - if you want to be inclusive it needs to come from the top. Stop promoting people who don't align to your 'values'.
