    Quite a few opportunities once off of service desk. Great work life balance Plenty of chances to upskill

    Cons

    All levels of management need to communicate better with each other. Different directions depending in which manager you talk with. Pay doesn't always reflect the title or role youre8in

    Excellent company culture with great team spirit. Management make a real effort to tell staff what is happening. Communicating both wins and losses. Made lots of good friends and associates here. This company cares about their staff you are not just a number here.

    It can be hard to stand out in the crowd and make good career progression in a timely manner this is all dependent on what contracts are in play at the time of your annual review.

    I have been working at Kinetic IT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of great people still work there. Yet I dont know for how longer. Many jaded old-timers who toxify the wider clique. Great parties.

    Cons

    They dont really foster the same culture they used to. If you fit in to their very clicky ring of of peers, you will be ok. But they are all old timers, new-comers will find it hard (unless you start on service desk). Not a lot of positivity. They keep winning tenders at rock bottom prices, with ambitious deadlines that are wearing out their peak performers. Nothing exciting is really happening there anymore. Their chosen technology partners are all mediocre solutions, and frustrating to deal with.

    Pros

    Flexibility within the role and diverse culture which included Large Christmas Parties and Family Gatherings.

    Cons

    - Employee untouchable Culture or group of long tenure employees who are continually a protected specie. - No reward for over and above efforts - Salaries are 30% if not more below the market IT salary package - High expectation to charge the account Contract every billable hour, even though time is not spent on Those projects . - High accountabilities for little recognition or reward - fraudulently charging Accounts/Projects ridiculous amounts of billable hours without conscientious from the Account and or actually conducting direct activities on that particular project ! But is a expectation for all Project based employees. - empathise OHS with mental health but not actioned professionally or recognised. - Negligible work life Balance , where the work pressures and commitments out way the Life balances even though it is evidently not occurring! ( smoke and mirrors analogy ) - CEO and particularly CFO have no understanding of how the companies and staff at are operating but only have emphasis on a high level of individual project account billing only.
