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

    Pros

    Great people, culture and benefits. From the obvious (discounts on optus products) to a online platform with retailer discounts to learning opportunities for personal and professional growth. Working on a campus has a fantastic vibe; you can work inside but also outside and enjoy the park-feel at lunchtime with trees, water and picnic tables.

    Cons

    Its very hard to chose between all the coffee outlets! There is a strong culture of meetings which can be time consuming.

    I have been working at Optus full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people, if you know the right people you'll get ahead quickly, work life balance can be OK - varies between teams, direct management are great - they're in the same boat as you, long tenure, discounts on telecommunications services,

    Cons

    Dinosaur aged systems, who you know not what you know, can be extremely slow due to controlling leadership, lots of peacocking, collaboration by mantra only, long tenure, top level heavy, not actually a equal opportunity business
