      The company places a lot of importance on employee's welfare and this is especially evident during the pandemic. They also take employee feedback seriously. Nice and healthy working culture promotes learning and development.

      Pros

      Great staff benefits, location and pay

      Cons

      Promotion is through favouritism and who ever hangs around long enough. Limited career progression. Some people in same jobs for 10 years +. HR division isn’t very nice. They are meant to be looking out for people but are doing everything but. Stay away unless you like boys clubs or patting on back mentality. Strange cult like vibe of that your thing then go for it

      Pros

      Office & employee perks are great - breakfast, Friday drinks, flex holidays, flexible work from home arrangements. Relaxed environment. Realistic workloads. Great L&D opportunities.

      Cons

      Lack of career progression. Poor culture in some teams (other teams are great hence the title). Fixed mindset, not open to trying new things or learning from others experience. Entitled with no accountability. Management don't know how to manage bullying, passive aggressive, cliquey high school behaviour. Try to talk to as many people as possible before accepting a role.

      Awesome place to work, surpassed my expectations

      Sep 9, 2018 - Senior Developer in Melbourne

      Pros

      Has an excellent positive culture that emphasises discussion and problem solving. Smart group of thinkers that are using some great technology to make the experience of attracting talent (or finding your next job) easier. The biggest pro for me was that I felt quite at home and felt I could be myself without any judgement. What more could you ask for really?

      Cons

      Career progression is an issue that management is aware of and are working on. A typical problem of a large entity with most people pretty happy and not moving on and so therefore how do you promote others. For me this was critical and I decided to explore external opportunities. The other major one would be too focused on competition and not as focused on innovation.
