    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.

    Put more care into your number 1 asset - your people

    I have been working at Suncorp Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really flexible work arrangements with decent benefits for staff (discounted insurance, banking, loans and a variety of retail discounts). Work at a team level is really good.

    Cons

    Salary is a little less than what you would get elseware. There is a seemingly constant churn of contractors and restructures happen far too often. CIO seems very against Agile, which creates tensions. Funding structures and management politics makes things difficult when trying to react/enact change.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the funding model for technology teams. Remove the red tape so we can actually react quickly to the market changes. Improve communication up and down the management chain.

    Pros

    Great workplace, flexible working and good people

    Cons

    Office politics, friendships trump output in some cases

    Advice to Management

    Listen up to feedback of employees more and hold management to more account to deliver action than just talk/present.

    I worked at Suncorp Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Suncorp group is an excellent company to work for if you are looking for a traditional company with a very conservative work culture. Suncorp creates a community culture which fosters harmony in the workplace, with an employee base who are generally 35+ suncorp is great for employees who are looking for a long term career prospect with great job security and a sense of family within the workplace.

    Cons

    Suncorps culture may not be for everyone, with little to no commission structure, and an arbitrary bi-annual bonus structure based on the budget management has set aside, younger millennial or workers looking for high performance high paying roles may find themselves quickly suffocated. Suncorp tends to utilize secondments over promotions to ensure workers are given different roles and responsibilities to understand the...

    Advice to Management

    As a traditional company with a conservative culture, I believe suncorp runs very well, they have setup a workplace that is low pressure and fosters harmony between the workers. Office politics generally occurs on a micro scale but there is definitely no case of systemic abuse of power or office politics merging into management decisions. Keep up the good work.
