    I have been working at Tabcorp part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of flexible working arrangements. Able to work from home and set hours as I like. Good pay. Nice offices in Sydney.

    Cons

    Job freeze has meant increase in workload without any recognition or compensation. High turnover has increased this load.
    Staff care has dropped off markedly in the last few years, no longer a mutually beneficial relationship anymore, just do as you're told.
    Chaotic going through the merger with Tatts. Very little structure or clarity about roles and processes but still the expectation that the work will get done.
    Little support for staff going into new roles - no training available. No pay rise offered when taking on increased responsibility, even after extended time in the job.
    Not great scope for advancement working in Sydney, with the bigger offices being in Melbourne and Brisbane.
    Teams split across cities with very little budget to travel to increase team cohesion.

    Advice to Management

    No one wants to be set up to fail. Look after your staff and they'll look after you.

    Pros

    Lovely people to work with, nice offices

    Cons

    mediocre digital leadership, and too many managers. no talent acquisition, no talent retention, lots of outsourcing. place to hone your skills as a junior, steer away if senior.

    hire smart people and ask them what to do rather than telling them what to do.

    I worked at Tabcorp full-time

    Pros

    -> Free coffee
    -> Good experience to develop more skills

    Cons

    -> The position/position description discussed at interview was different to the actual role
    -> Little to no training, after being employed and re-purposed into a different role without discussion
    -> No training in project role required as a baseline to be effective
    -> Expectation appeared to be do 2 or 3 roles in one role and be paid below market av. salary
    -> Culture of little to no flexibility, docking leave and there appeared to be different rules for some staff and managers
    -> Poor thought and people leadership
    -> Management behaviour and culture needs to be evaluated

    Advice to Management

    Culture needs to be evaluated. Observed high staff turnover. Identify the skillsets/experience of managers and analyse reoccurring themes of high staff turnover. Evaluate if you have great people and thought leadership in this area of the business. Evaluate if you are treating your employees fairly and are fostering a relationship of mutual respect.
