    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Telstra full-time

    Pros

    Work Life Balance good local team

    Cons

    Higher Management too focused on Financial Numbers and also too reliant on the concept of "Agile". Don't think every manager know what "Agile" is and teams structures are in a big mess. Massive IT outsource is still ongoing.

    Pros

    Local teams are good. Pay is nice, even if the contract isn't

    Cons

    Awful contracts Horrible corporate culture Tonedeaf decision making Excessive red tape Too many processes, not enough guidance, and even then more than half are nonsensical, unnecessary, and completely wrong. Hellbent on stretching out union negotiations (Current EA discussions have lasted for more than 2 years!)
