    Pros

    I love the working culture. It's a very laid back company which gives flexibility to its employees. Very diverse.

    Cons

    Salary is not at par with the market but it gets compensated with work flexibility and culture.

    Advice to Management

    We need to break the silos of some of the teams. Look at the compensation as well.

    I worked at Computershare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible working environment, family feeling, workmates are awesome and willing to share knowledge. Business transparency with staff. Good for developers to grow as there are lots of good software development practice.

    Cons

    Below standarded equipments, monitors, laptop, chairs etc. Those things disappointing the employees more than the salary.

    Advice to Management

    Should be more generous to the staff rather than treat people as cost. It's a bit unfortunately to see that people learn a lot in Computershare that cannot stay longer to continue make contribution, a bit waste for the business.

    I have been working at Computershare full-time

    Pros

    Some great minds there who can teach you a lot if you can get time to ask them. Great perks such as gym and employee share plans. A company with money means a company with tools which is always great.

    Cons

    If you are a new junior and wanting to work on new technologies, this is not the place to come. Company is bit behind the times but slowly getting there.

    Advice to Management

    I was lucky to have the best manager and hope all my managers are like him. Management in general was great because everything was transparent and clear.

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

    Pros

    A bit of work flexibility only at the discretion of your boss

    Cons

    1. Old systems , Technology and ways of working.
    2. Lots of politics
    3. No growth options
    4. High Stress levels due to a lot of micromanagement, creating issues for no reason.
    5. Management is too old, incompetent and ineffective.
    6. Lower Pay than the market

    Advice to Management

    Please pay heed to HR feedback from people who are leaving the organization . Port Melbourne especially needs new management in a lot of teams.

    I worked at Computershare full-time

    Pros

    Easy, slow, no ambition required. If you're in certain areas of tech you can muck around for years without having to achieve anything. Share plan, gym. Good people.

    Cons

    Nobody cares, outdated procedures, processes and technology. Half-baked will do. Driven by IT that does not understand or care about the business. Happy to spend millions of $ on rubbish but not on employees. Bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    Expect more. Do more, don't settle for 3 year projects when 3 months is more realistic (if you don't work for Computershare). Your technology is driving your business and those teams are sprouting 3 year old dogma/kool aid rather than addressing your problems.

    I have been working at Computershare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There really aren't any pro's. Maybe that there is a cafe on site but then again, its cash only and refuses to work an eftpos machine.

    Cons

    A monopoly thats gotten far too complacent and lazy at progressing and staying competitive. Senior leadership that is not diverse enough.
    Does not invest in technology in a timely manner. Does not focus enough on increasing morale within its employees. Every year it's the same excuse with budget cuts and less resourcing. They also tend to promote people that are unfit for management roles that require people skills.

    Advice to Management

    Quit while you're ahead of the game or be prepared to make drastic changes because your competitors are following close behind you and its a matter of time before your stake in the market is superseded.
