    I worked at Salmat full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, great team that I directly worked with. Company culture is good but there are definitely some changes happening there

    Cons

    Other teams are siloed off which doesn't create an overall team environment with a shared goal but rather competing interests.

    I worked at Salmat full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Semi relaxed clothing requirements, nice office in the city, hire a range of types of people- quirky sense of humour and alternative style isn't punished.

    Cons

    Often report to a team leader that has no understanding of your role, and are treated like a recalcitrant child for the slightest infraction (too long between calls when making detailed notes, too long in the bathroom while sick, inflexibility when outside life needs to be accommodated. One afternoon off removes all per hour bonuses for that fortnight, as does being sick or late.) Understaffing as a temporary issue becomes permanent, and promises of support are not followed through on. A year and a half doing afternoon shift alone, which school have been 2 people and possibly a changeover shift person overlapping. KPIs and metrics matter more than the mental health of employees, processes randomly change, no proper implementation of processes and supporting systems- often systems are shoved through last minute, without enough testing. Once every fortnight at least some of the major systems required would crash, or the firewall reset and made all online apps (so all programs used) unable to be accessed.

    Pros

    There is nothing good about working at this company. Just don't go there!

    Cons

    Salmat is a very unstable Company. The turnover is very high. They hire people in permanent positions and in a few months even after they have past their probation period they make their positions redundant!
