    Pros

    have no positive review here

    Cons

    To much of micro management, nothing to learn, it's a service based company were you works for 9 hour and if you are working from home they will call you every hour to check if you are working.

    Advice to Management

    Don't force everyone for taking certificate and attending long sessions.

    I have been working at Telstra full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Flexible work policies - Competitive pay package

    Cons

    - This is a software service organization (not a product company), though the recruiters advertise it as a product company. India teams work for business teams in Australia, who treat Telstra India teams same as other partner teams like those from Wipro, Infosys, etc. In fact, partner employees get to travel onsite to Australia, whereas Telstra India permanent employees don't! - No own office in Pune. Everyone... works from partner locations like Wipro, Infosys. Lots of network and IT issues very regularly due to being on partner premises and using laptops given by the partner company. - The company hires and then due to a sudden change in direction, has no work for the experienced new joiners. A lot of time and effort is spent in finding billing for everyone. - Chaotic structure with every manager having many reportees across locations. So, they cannot spend much time with anyone.

    Advice to Management

    - Find own office in Pune and Hyderabad ASAP! - Don't hire people unless you really need someone to be hired! - Hire more managers, so that they have less reportees and can spend time with everyone.

    Current Employee - Graduate in Bangalore

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

    Pros

    The entry level graduates will be smart guys who will make most sense to you.

    Cons

    1. The mid level managers / scrum masters/ leads will mostly be from IT companies like Infy, Wipro etc. who will screw your life. 2. The flexible work timing is fading away fast. 3. You will be judged based on the amount of time you spend in office rather than quality work that you do. 4. If you are joining as a graduate, you may be getting good salary as compared to the employees of the vendor companies of... Telstra. They will be jealous of you for this reason all the time. 5. The higher management just won't care about the entry level guys. The mid level managers will be the guys with ultimate source of truth to them. 6. You will be a "graduate" for 3 years if you join this company straight out of college.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment Good technologies Smaller teams Product development Not soo much work pressure

    Cons

    Don't have office in Pune/HYD you work from vendor location. Too much process. No clear guidelines on most of the things. Vendor's attitude isn't that good in HPSE model.

    Advice to Management

    Get a office in India first, otherwise people won't recognise Telstra as a brand.
