    Pros

    Love the WFH and flexible work arrangement, the Agile ways of working is progressing very well with various cross company chapters forming. The company also has a very consistent quarterly planning process which ensures individuals are always working on the highest priorities with clarity. Obviously Telstra has been the leader of telecom and techs, really love to see the new ventures and partnership with various tech companies which should enable us to refresh our value proposition as a leading tech company.

    Cons

    Still a lot of legacy process and systems which make it hard to make data driven decision.

    Pros

    Very large organisation with lots of employee support that you can count on

    Cons

    Unlike the past, it now lacks clear differentiation in the market to attract customers or justify higher/premium pricing. That's putting a lot of pressure on the organisation to respond through a huge amount of organisational change and downsizing, which can cause career anxiety.
