    I worked at Oakton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Excellent CBD location a stone throw from Flinders St. Station. - A good range of well-known clients. - Plenty of opportunity to work on things well out of your remit for accelerated experience. - Suits a 9 to 5 worker, no where near as strict as other consultancies and DA's. - You will go unnoticed on client sites. If you keep your head down and say nothing, you'll probably enjoy the job.

    Cons

    - Projects are rarely quoted well failing to understand the requirements with sufficient time to complete. - Junior level staff found filling more senior roles at the expense of quality and supportable work. - Your salary will be well below market rate, especially for those joining the company in the last 5 years. - Zero culture, unless you're a principal consultant where you can have your Friday beer. - Asking for...

    Advice to Management

    Review your remuneration across the floor. This combined with poor project planning are the two biggest reasons good quality staff have walked out the door. Look after your staff otherwise you will continue to churn out dud after dud.

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

    Pros

    The people and projects that I worked on

    Cons

    This company is in Trouble. Management are not the best, they don't look after their only asset - PEOPLE. They need to work out what they want to be and ensure that Management has the talent to implement.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your people and stop promoting those who win popularity contests. A lot of great people have left because of poor management and lack of direction. Reward the staff who find the work not the sales people who do not find the work.
