    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Suncorp Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great people up to C level
    - techies can be passionate and forward thinking
    - people are passionate about creating great customer experiences but hamstrung by funding

    Cons

    - C level sprout things and then don't fund them.
    - We let key people go knowing full well that IP is walking out the door and we then need that IP as funding kicks in for the next FY.
    - Lowest engagement scores on record for C level. People at other levels are considerate and have been through this so often that they are numb to it.
    - short sighted finding strategy

    Advice to Management

    - fund your teams and projects at an adequate level. This doesn't mean more money but does mean providing money to the right projects that benefit our customers
    - Don't speak about the customer and digital initiatives without then backing that up with cash. We are losing faith in your rhetoric
