    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.

    I worked at NBN Co full-time

    Pros

    Great people (peers not bosses), great environment, and flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Way too many people in management positions who offer absolutely zero value to this roll out, yet the people who actually do the work get the unfortunate feeling of job uncertainty. Because of poor leadership, crap foresight or insight on actually what's going on the front line, spending money on useless staff, it's an extremely unstable environment where, at any moment, you can be out of a job at any moment.

    Advice to Management

    Minimise your management teams. Too many chiefs. Not enough actual workers who do work.

    Pros

    Work life balance Competitive pay Has some extremely talented employees

    Cons

    Too many people in senior positions without any real idea what they're doing Jobs for mates has introduced lots of the wrong people Management out of touch with people on the ground Legitimate HR issues (bullying etc) are brushed under the carpet

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with the people on the ground, and actually listen. (not a token 15 minute skip meeting that achieves nothing)

    - Plenty of opportunities - Above market pay

    Cons

    - Constant restructuring - Complex organisational hierarchy harming accountability - Constant redundancies

    Strategic plans should not change every 6 months. Have redundancies in one go to allow staff some relief.

    challenging work, great peers, real change.

    let one restructure embed before beginning the next one. Actually care about the NBN values rather than trying to hit bonuses.
