    I worked at MYOB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    coworkers and team leaders. The team leaders go out of their way to do what they can but they're so far down in the chain of command, it's too little too late.

    Cons

    You will be worked like a dog and forced to make a large volume of sales (directly or through AccountRight & Essentials services) or risk failing probation; thus termination. It's a sales job that also demands for you to be a tech expert in the software as well as billing but no where near what the sales people get paid. We're told we must generate a huge revenue to the company to be worth employment yet the pay is meager and so is the commission. It's a fraction of what the sales people make but 4-5 times the work,stress and difficulty. Honestly, it made me quit and take up a business course so I never need to take the route of being a CS representative to get my foot in the door of a company. It's not a respected position (internally). On top of that, the career opportunities solely lie on how good of a salesman you are, even if the position you are applying for isn't sales related since it's the biggest performance metric of the role.

    Pros

    Flexibility and can be rewarding with the stars align

    Cons

    A lot of dodgy sales tactics, especially by the “top performers”. Manages and team leaders are well aware but refuse to admit as it will effect their earning capacity. They work you to your teeth like a dog. Also outdated legacy software.

    Pros

    Amazing people who are passionate about their work.

    Cons

    MYOB used to be an amazing place to work with an amazing culture and a focus and care for its people. Since the takeover by KKR MYOB is a ghost of its former self and is merely being gutted for parts at this point. The new leaderships only concern is the financials and cutting costs no matter the impact. No care is given for the people, the culture or creating an innovative and collaborative environment.

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

    Pros

    Working with a team of like minded individuals. Good location and supports WFH

    Cons

    It has lost its way and the approach of how MYOB laid off 130 staff just showcases how little the organisation values its staff.

    Pros

    * good culture * flexible work options * mostly pro-employee * tries their best to keep employees engaged

    Cons

    * has a tendency to put unrealistic KPIs on employees * advertised roles as non-sales and then force you to make sales when you start working. * some of the management have completely no idea what they are doing * you might feel underpaid compared to all the tasks they actually expect from and give you compared to the tasks they advertised
