      Pros

      Flexible working "Results driven not bums in seats" - however you will be given the work of 4 people Good social scene - Some lovely people working here, love a drink, so can make great friends however SB have stopped hosting parties and drinking in the office on Fridays has been gotten rid of. Company is performing well, bonus' have been attractive

      Cons

      Very relationship focused, lots of politics, its who you know not what you know that will depend on salary increases and promotions. Salaries are not competitive, they talk "Package (including super and bonus)" to try and make it sound more attractive. Same people get rewarded and recognised all the time. Some teams in the business are very separated even though they are in the same department and look down or certain teams and people are treated very differently depending on who their manager is or what their function does. High Turnover Don't action "My say" results unless they can talk about how great they are. Chiefs are disconnected from the majority of the employees, what they do earn and what they want from their careers or what's happening in their departments. 3 days a week in the office

      Pros

      Amazing culture, lots of fun and perks. Super friendly and relaxed, great work life balance and flexible work arrangements. Always innovating!

      Cons

      The organisation is very hierarchical, with many layers of management. This can make it hard to get anything new approved and sometimes you feel insignificant.

      Pros

      Good for people who - speak only in jargons - want to retire here - not have a purpose , as you will just be a cog in the wheel - good bonuses - goodies all year around - love drinking and partying - love hierarchy and titles - love meetings and townhalls

      Cons

      - Too many layers of leadership - 10 people working on what one person can do typically in other similar organisations - Two faced people leaders (good talkers) - Decision making happens at the top - Vision does not match the values - Beautiful powerpoint presentations that do not materialise into a strategy - Talent and efforts are rewarded if you are a yes man.
