    Pros

    Getting the opportunity to work with a passionate group of people toward an important purpose in a super supportive environment

    Tendency to overthink decisions and seek consensus, which means the business can move slowly. There is also a tendency to favour a specific way of thinking and communicating in all situations (that used by strategy consulting)

    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    - Be hard pressed to find a company that treats their employees better (12 weeks maternity leave, 5 weeks annual leave, unlimited sick leave, income protection insurance) - Lots of fun events, friday afternoon drinks, espresso machine. - Good salary

    Cons

    - Technology is not a core focus of the business as the companies success has been driven by sales and marketing. - Engineering culture is pretty poor in most teams. - Limited opportunities to move into senior technical leadership positions, those positions are mostly recruited externally. - Strict governance on programming languages, frameworks, AWS services etc. - Office location on St Kilda road and new office in Cremorne is not much better.

    I worked at SEEK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I got to work with some really lovely, smart, hardworking people on great projects.

    Cons

    High expectation to be available after hours and weekends to meet tight deadlines. Transitioning into other areas is quite difficult and highlights a bit of a 'clicky' culture, the internal candidate experience leaves something to be desired.
