    Low pay and systems access nightmare

    Pros

    Working from home, that's it.

    Cons

    Simply obtaining systems access to perform your responsibilities is a constant battle. The onus seems to be on the employee not the employer to organise, it’s completely backwards. In my case, I was onboarded incorrectly to an offshore region despite being located within Australia, which further complicated access issues due to security constraints. This took months to resolve, with escalations to 1-up managers often being ignored, and it was only through my project team did I receive any assistance. The pay is poor, like 30-40% lower than what it should be. I am paid through an agency (Wipro) who in turn contracted another agency to handle the recruitment, which may explain the low pay. All in all, it’s only because of the pandemic that I have stuck it out so far.
