    Standard large company

    3 May 2015 - Accountant 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Perfect for telecommunication experience. Great industry. One of the biggest company in Australia. Increasingly visible at the international level. Some great lines of business exist. Amazing technologies (great for engineers).

    Cons

    The company is too complex for its own good. Lost its agility and responsiveness. Projects funding is difficult and very long. Some people are still bureaucrats and don't want the company to progress (e.g. process simplification). Some toxic leaders in and there in the company (~20% of management). Lack of internal career development and opportunities. Lack of pertinent training. Too much reconstruction, staff redundancy and outsourcing.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work from home opportunities, free phone contact

    Cons

    Restructure every 5min, no one really knows what they are doing. Telstra is trying to be a "technology" firm, but what does that even mean? Working there is the same as the share price - going downhill
