      Good people, terrible culture

      29 May 2021 - Agile Delivery Manager in Sydney
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You get fast piled up with work and responsibilities, resulting in a great scope for learning. You don't get bored since change is constant and fast-paced. You get global exposure, interesting work, and high-quality co-workers.

      Cons

      Really competitive, a challenging, money-driven environment that creates a culture that is unfortunately not inclusive, supportive, or collaborative. Sometimes really toxic to work in. People constantly burn out or break down. Definitely not a place if you want a work-life balance, you do long work hours. Lots of politics and some of the office facilities are terrible.
