      Pros

      - Great Culture - Lots of support from leaders and colleagues - Cutting edge tech and practises - lots of small perks which seem to be thoughtful - Encouraged to move internally within teams - Really good work/life balance, people are very understanding of each individual's circumstances

      Cons

      - Growth can be slow (promotions are very varied depending on the team you're in) - Hiring process is sometimes painful both when you're interviewing for the job and even when you're interviewing someone for you team - Turning from small teams/startup vibes to a corporate structure, lots of hierarchies being created at the moment

      Pros

      Positive and collaborative workplace with mature business leaders and great technical talent. Forward looking and non-complacent. Innovative but practical. Family-orientated with good work-life balance and an amazing culture. Everyone in the digital space in Australia should aspire to working here.

      Cons

      Everywhere else will be a disappointment after working here

      A very reactive workplace that relies heavily on its reputation for partying hard

      Pros

      The culture is superb, providing a really good work/life balance. There's a lot of young creatives with good ideas and the gender balance is very mixed, which is refreshing. Upper management has a really open relationship with staff and there's a lot of opportunities to hear their thoughts and vision.

      Cons

      A very reactive work place. They may be a market leader in Australia, but globally they are chasing the competition. Middle management have to much control and give little support to those doing the heavy lifting. There's far to much favourtism given to people who are 'liked' by the right people.

      Excellent place to work, if you know what you want

      Pros

      1. The work life balance is excellent. I haven't had trouble fitting in life events during work hours, sometimes even at the last moment. 2. Once you've proven yourself competent to your team for a few months, you can pretty much get direct/indirect funding for any business/tech idea that you have to benefit SEEK and see it implemented. 3. There are a lot of smart people at SEEK. If you want to practice influencing smart people to work on cool ideas, this is the place to do it if you land in the right team and prove yourself (by doing a great job). 4. If you want to learn something new, you usually can take the time for it, but you need to prove yourself first.

      Cons

      1. The St Kilda office location.
