    Pros

    Outstanding support from managers and execs, work-life balance, relaxed atmosphere, amazing culture with focus on quality of work and communication, and not on petty politics, you are encouraged to learn and develop, current CEO and other execs listen the free coffee will be a drawcard for some, personally I don't drink that much coffee, so I don't get my free beverage every day there is a slide

    Cons

    non-CBD location, though this may be a benefit for some; Southland SC is close by though.

    I worked at iSelect full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Training system is great to learn, free coffee, cool office, ethically make 150k p.a but have to work hard for it.

    Cons

    You have to work 6 days a week to make commission, nearly all team leaders can’t actually sell and don’t know what they are saying or training on. Expected to work overtime. Tenure isn’t recognised or appreciated.

    I worked at iSelect full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Casual uniform One free coffee a day Decent training

    Cons

    Training is great, but once you are on the floor you see it for it is. Newbies are given old limited leads as more experienced staff have higher conversions. Understandable but it is hard enough meeting targets with limited experience, harder with old, cold leads. Targets are consistently changing. If you meet them, commissions are decent but you'll be working 30 hours technically unpaid over time every week. Complete high school mentality, boss's promote their friends, who can't do their job. Favourites are a reality, team leaders would not blink an eye if their favourite rocked up 2 hours late, still high on drugs from the weekend but if you're 1 minute late you're made to have a "conversation". Drugs are everywhere, on premises and at all work events. Not forgiving for sick leave, take one sick day and you are singled out and guilt tripped. Honestly stay in whatever job you are in.. don't waste your time here.

    I have been working at iSelect

    Pros

    Great people, free coffee, and onsite parking. The onsite café does a sensational job.

    Cons

    The technology team lacks leadership, vision and strategy. People are treated like garbage, overworked, underpaid, and underappreciated. The company has huge plans for growth and a non- existant technology investment to enable it. Certain individuals in middle and senior managent (within the IT team) are not capable of performing their job.

    I worked at iSelect

    Pros

    Has free coffee in the morning but that's it.

    Cons

    You will be treated like a dish rag there. High pressure even when you are a top performer. No sympathy for personal circumstances. You will be treated like scum there. Management wants to work you like a slave just for that extra dollar
