    I have been working at NBN Co full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    some great people, and some interesting technologies if you're in the CDO

    Cons

    pockets of toxic political culture means you have be managing perceptions across your stakeholders as well as delivering. Frequent restructures that don't make particular sense. Areas of the company will be shrinking as the network build approaches completion.

    Advice to Management

    Settle down - a restructure is not the answer to every problem. Value people and their knowledge, there is such a revolving door that the newcomers can't even ask the old timers what's going on, the old timers have moved on or been let go in a restructure.

      HR/P&C dont practice what they preach. Senior manager manages at hands length and blame employees for subsequent lack of engagement.

      Advice to Management

      Review your P&C processes and plan.

      Pros

      Pays well. Great employee benefits

      Cons

      Leaning more and more towards building processes for every single function that you perform. Extreme focus on L2, L3, L4 processes, RACI, Swimlanes, SIPOC, rather than doing the actual work.
