    I worked at Dialog Information Technology

    Pros

    Started in a good, fun team that did a lot of project work, but that changed... The consultants are generally very good - when given a role that suits them best My kids loved the Christmas parties

    Cons

    I eventually got stuck in bodyshop central I was ignored by management when at client sites Being on the freelist is not fun You will be placed at the first role that will pay money, regardless of your preferred role/career direction I had very little opportunity for training or career change in later years Annual reviews are a joke - sometimes agreed pay increases aren't approved for 6 months, or it's rejected by...

    Current Employee - Consultant in Canberra

    I have been working at Dialog Information Technology

    Pros

    Salary is on time. You get the reminders to submit time sheets.

    Cons

    Management does not care towards consultants. Not even a "hi" or "hello" from the Senior Manager who visits the client.

    Advice to Management

    Care more and give fair compensation.

    I worked at Dialog Information Technology

    Pros

    Decent salary On time payment Nice company if you are billable

    Cons

    1. Hell to be on free list. 2. No pay rise 3. Lots of favouritism and discrimination especially by Admin staff. 4. Backstabbing by certain Account executives. 5. Lack of transparency in sales process and no collective strategy to win new work. 6. Rude behaviour by Admin staff and talent acquisition team.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating people on free list like slaves. Get rid of some account executives who are just wasting time in fiddling around with tender responses and no idea on how to win new work.

    I have been working at Dialog Information Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Melbourne - Dedicated to client outcomes and delivery, family friendly, solid relationship with long standing customers, growing social club. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Work types sometimes limited by opportunities on customers sites. You need to work hard to be selected for career progression, still improving the culture. Mid range pay. Brisbane HQ can be slow. Some people in teams are slow or not performing well.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop staff and positive team culture. Promote the team from within. Set clear KPIs and goals for increases in salary.

    I worked at Dialog Information Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    on-time payments, good client base and projects

    Cons

    Bad management team. Not ready for future. Still following old practices with no training on offer. Dialog is not a real IT company, Just another body shopping business that can only make money by underpaying staff and delivering low quality work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your good consultants happy as that's all you have. You know that there is no IT knowledge in the company without your senior software leads (real ones not the ones you sell to clients as seniors)
