        I have been working at Optus full-time for more than 10 years

        Pros

        A strongly value oriented organisation that provides great rewards and fosters innovation and growth. It provides a rewards for performance environment with annual bonus and strong sales commissions.

        Cons

        I'm sure all companies have Cons but in many cases that is a state of mind of the individual. I would say your immediate leader is key to engagement.

        Advice to Management

        Continue to invest in the capability of your teams and leaders.
