    Pros

    Great Place to Work.
    Great work - personal life balance.
    Flexibility of work in place.
    Understand you and your family needs.
    Promote great work life balance by senior executive team.
    Good salary, bonus, perks. Mint office environment, kitchen facilities are great. Desks are awesome and comforatble.

    Many events througout the year that engage you with other teams. Flexi leave is my favourite. Also, business is giving back to community by organising cumminiity day where you can participate.

    Cons

    None. But I could see decision power shifted towards north.
    Like to see TPD or health insurance, myki discount etc in perks.

    Advice to Management

    Like to see some employee benefits that can assist day to day like MyKi discount, health insurance etc.

    Pros

    very nice Melbourne office. close to public transport

    Cons

    People and culture is working very hard to promote / improve culture. They did well but depends on which team you are in, things can be different.
    My experience in this particular team is:
    1. team manager is VERY poor, i.e. playing favoritism, no context provided for all jobs given, no involvement, no professional development, no career progression, no empowering, no proper recognition for the work you do, take all credits etc.

    2. some team member who can be with the business for a long time has a " this is how we do things here" mentality, lack of technical skills, no team spirit and pull ranks. Dont get me wrong, there are very nice and talented people in the business, they are just not in my team.

    3. Tabcorp itself is highly regulated business. The Brand has a great heritage so is the of operation. I can be wrong but the area Im in, it's political, slow, no challenge to status-quo.

    I worked with an amazing immediate team up to and including my GM.
    Good relationships with other business units.
    Interesting and challenging work.

    Cons

    There is little faith across the team in the HR Group Executive, who gives an impression of not being interested in the team's concerns.
