  4. "Project Manager in Technology, Data & Labs (TDL) Review"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Senior Management
    Current Contractor - Project Manager 

    I have been working at Suncorp Group

    Pros

    1. Flexible working hours and ability to work from home up to 2 days per week. 2. Friendly work colleagues 3. Pays higher daily rate compared to some of the big banks. 4. Recommended if you are just interested in a well pay job with flexibility but nothing more.

    Cons

    1. Much smaller than the big four banks, so expect to perform more than just your PM role e.g PMO analyst, Implementation & Tech Lead and Scrum Master roles. 2. Not the right fit if you are looking for career growth & progression. Only Delivery Manager & Portfolio Managers roles exist as the next step upwards. 3. Little support & mentoring provided to new starters. More of a 'swim or sink' approach.... 4. Project Management disciplines and best practices lacking. 5. High staff turnover. 6. Be prepared to manage two projects at once as it's rare for a PM to be allocated full time to just one project. 7. Projects are smaller in budget size compared to big banks. A 500K project is considered a very large project. 8. Some level of micro management exist, depending on the type of project you are allocated too. 9. Not using Agile/ Scrum the right way. Best practices not being used.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the setup of project management, testing, environments and release management practices within TDL. Invest more time into standarising & governance. Invest in bring on Agile Coaches / Scrum Masters onto projects for a short period of time. Invest in putting together an induction pack for new starters as this would be more efficient and a cost savings.

    I worked at Suncorp Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible working environment and work from home

    Cons

    -lack of strategy -no direction -No 1:1s and occasional team/dept meetings -Top heavy management who cant manage down except bark orders with unreal expectations and timeframes. -all reactive work, no structure or forwarded planning -Performance manage good and dedicated engineers who are loyal to the company -no succession or career progression

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people to hit the male/female numbers, should be the right person for the right role regardless of gender. Mandate all people leaders have 1:1s with their staff with development plans in place.

    I worked at Suncorp Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible working and decent benefits

    Cons

    Management lack skills and can’t deliver. Very poor people leader skills. Obvious favouritism and lack of fair work due process around recruitment (jobs for mates). Staff are noticeably disengaged and the culture is terrible. Lots of long-timers walking out the door.

    Advice to Management

    To the SLT - time to start questioning your HOs and EMs as to why you are losing so many good caliber employees. Stop recruiting people who are all talk and no substance.
