      I have been working at Simplot Australia

      Pros

      Simplot is a highly collaborative and dynamic company. There is a long term focus to achieving strategy and people are empowered and trusted. Many opportunities to demonstrate your talent and develop your career.

      Cons

      At times Simplot can be risk adverse and there is a continuing need to focus on critical conversations.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to communicate and work collaboratively.

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Melbourne

      I worked at Simplot Australia full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Good family feel about the company . Treated well and not just a number like at large corporate companies. Flexible working arrangements. Most people start early and are gone by 4pm. Work from home one day a week.

      Cons

      Old school technologies in IT. Lack of after work social activities. Being siloed into being an SME at one particular thing and having to focus on that.

      Advice to Management

      The new MD is a breath of fresh air and is introducing some exciting things. Other managers need to follow suit instead of being stuck in their ways.

      Pros

      Great if you're looking for family-friendly retail/ sales/marketing roles with major brands.

      Cons

      IT is not future-focused, instead, they over-build projects.

      Advice to Management

      Consider which departments are holding others back. Who wants to move faster and who is holding them back.

        Pros

        Sometimes you can get the left over products for the cheap price for some forms of staff benefits, the working environment is ok.

        Cons

        The team leader gets selected by the shift manger, hard to get promoted. It is more about how you get along well with your line manager rather than you ability

        Advice to Management

        Select a proper team leader and form a good team. Review the staffs performance more equall.
