      Great Environment and Opportunities To Excel

      Mar 7, 2018 - Graduate in Sydney

      Pros

      - Great and diverse work environment, with amazing people at all levels. - The technology campus itself is amazing to work at everyday. - Great career progression opportunities and training resources available (especially for graduates). - Employee benefits are many, and improve the overall experience. - Transparency between management and employees is generally pretty good.

      Cons

      - Quite a bit of red tape to go through for project implementation. - Yearly(ish) redundancies can be demoralising, but it is what you can expect within a technology company as automation grows.
