    I worked at MYOB full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work time and good work and life balance (not sure if it's there any more.) Some smart and hard working first line staff (not sure how many would stay).

    Cons

    The company culture Tim Reed left to MYOB had been destroyed. It took MYOB about 10 years to transition the culture and about 9 months to drop it / change back. The new top management were experienced in technology outsourcing and e-commerce. You bet they know how to manage a professional software solution company. They have demonstrated their expertise by cutting off people, which happens a lot in outsource company as headcounts are just numbers there.

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

    Pros

    * The people on the ground are extremely intelligent and great to work with. * Most team environments enable a very flexible work culture. * Most leaders (in the Technology vertical) ensure that all of their team members take a break regularly and utilise their vacation time. * There are some strong communities of practice (in the Technology vertical) that encourage sharing knowledge and also tend to help each other grow - all driven through the members within the communities.

    Cons

    * A lot of the problems with delivery in MYOB arises from the inefficacies of its product team. The product team in most verticals have no clear product vision nor do the goals of the different verticals align. Delivery teams are expected to work together and produce stellar results without alignment, a bulk of which gets lost in the politics of it all. * Through the tech re-org that happened recently, how the new delivery managers were "chosen" to stay has been opaque i.e there was no clarity on how feedback was gathered and how individuals were assessed especially when the management layer that "chose/decided" had no clue or feedback about individuals. * Another inefficacy that was exposed through the tech re-org was how unprepared the HR team was with handling the severance activities - employees (who were let go) had to followup to finalise their last dates, multiple followups post their last date for payment and employment letters.

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

    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
