    I have been working at Telstra full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Work-life balance - Interesting and meaningful work - Company truly cares about the community domestically and internationally - great perks - walks the talk when it comes to diversity and inclusion - amazing colleagues - at the leading edge in new ways of working - graduate program provides many learning and development opportunities

    Cons

    personally would prefer working with my team in the same space but I am quite traditional in this sense. Remote working is the future.

    I have been working at Telstra full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Graduate Program - Lots of opportunities to gain exposure across the organisation. The current restructure will create future growth opportunities for graduates.

    Cons

    The current restructure has brought some temporary downfalls to many of my colleagues including job satisfaction, employee engagement and retention rates. These changes will be over soon, and I imagine this will lead to great things for the organisation and it's remaining employees (especially graduates).

    Advice to Management

    None - it's clear that the current changes (while upsetting for some) were required for the company to grow and prosper.

    The management, systems / software used and contacting the right person to speak to can become confusing as there are so many employees and systems / software in Telstra.

    Squash the org structure!

    I have been working at Telstra

    Pros

    chill work life balance, good pay, can do some interesting work if you're in the right team. access to good systems, can get some good hardware if you are one of the lucky ones.

    Cons

    Many dinosaurs who are waiting for retirement, not a high performing culture, bureaucracy and red tape everywhere. Seriously way too much bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    you can't just say buzzwords and expect them to solve your problems. that's not how life works. unfortunately saw far too much of that around.
