      Pros

      For such a large organisation the ability to reach out to your VP is fantastic. The visibility we have from the CEO down is great. Work life balance is not just talked about it is widely being done by thousands of our staff members. Close to public transport with our own bus to the city and the main shopping centre which there is also a shuttle bus for during lunch hours. On the job training and coaching is readily available to all and our community presence especially in times of need is outstanding.

      Cons

      There can be lack of accountability due to the large scale of the company. Often look for quick fixes which often require re-work on projects. Outdated systems and not enough training when releasing new systems or for new employees.

      Pros

      Diversity inclusive, work life balance, awesome perks

      Cons

      Optus followed the outsourcing trend and outsourced a lot of functions which had caused clashes between departments. It is quite often that 'left hand doesn't know what's right hand is doing'. it is also because of that, alot of un-necessary processes were created. E.g., When I contacted the IT support for a very simple request, it could take days for them resolve it as different IT support teams responsible for resolving different IT problems.

      Pros

      - Excellent customer focus - Excellent community engagement and reputation - Flexible work environment with focus on work/life balance - Strong team culture - Good perks on Optus products and other affiliated companies. Access to Mates Rates app that provide discounts for non-Optus products specifically for Optus staff

      Cons

      - Ongoing internal system issues - Internal IT department is slow in responding, often close cases that are unresolved and IT portal is hard to use when raising internal faults - Information about new or existing roles is only readily available when a role is being recruited for which makes it difficult when working on a career path
