    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Melbourne

    I worked at Simplot Australia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good family feel about the company . Treated well and not just a number like at large corporate companies. Flexible working arrangements. Most people start early and are gone by 4pm. Work from home one day a week.

    Cons

    Old school technologies in IT. Lack of after work social activities. Being siloed into being an SME at one particular thing and having to focus on that.

    Advice to Management

    The new MD is a breath of fresh air and is introducing some exciting things. Other managers need to follow suit instead of being stuck in their ways.

    Pros

    Great if you're looking for family-friendly retail/ sales/marketing roles with major brands.

    Cons

    IT is not future-focused, instead, they over-build projects.

    Advice to Management

    Consider which departments are holding others back. Who wants to move faster and who is holding them back.

    Good culture and great flexibility in terms of work hours - able to start early and finish early and vice versa. Working from home occasionally is also possible.

      Pros

      Sometimes you can get the left over products for the cheap price for some forms of staff benefits, the working environment is ok.

      Cons

      The team leader gets selected by the shift manger, hard to get promoted. It is more about how you get along well with your line manager rather than you ability

      Advice to Management

      Select a proper team leader and form a good team. Review the staffs performance more equall.

      I worked at Simplot Australia

      Pros

      No one cares (but is that really a positive?)

      Cons

      From an IT perspective Simplot is living in the past. From green screens and the general capability of staff this would be the lowest performing IT team I have worked with. There are pockets of bright sparks but they are squashed by an archaic corporate culture or tech limitations that is very traditional. If you are serious about your IT career then this is not the place for you. Recent changes in company structure...

      Advice to Management

      The culture in IT and company needs to be looked at. Look at what other companies in your vertical are doing. The style of IT on display isn't attractive and is not reflective of current trends which leads to niche systems and older generation of staff holistically. Embrace modern patterns and principals and make IT relevant.
