Manager, Fixed (Former Employee) – North Ryde NSW – 11 November 2017
Optus had a culture where individuals were focused on their own advancement not the good of the team. The organisation was full for individuals loafing behind inadequate process and excuses of 'it's not my job'.
Fun, productive, and passionate about the workplace
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Modbury SA – 29 September 2017
I would assume that the work place has to be as interactive as possible and the staff at Optus is capable of showing respect towards the customer. I would think that the environment will be enjoyable to work with.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Macquarie Park NSW – 29 August 2017
A company which made vast sums of money in its early years (the heyday of telecoms), which masked huge inefficiencies and poor management Time and again, wasted vast sums of money on hare-brained ideas (what ever happened to the $6M eatability?) and the exodus of many of the most talented senior management show a company in decline Coupled with an 'old boys' network you have a recipe for an organisation staggering from farce to disaster For many years, the only idea management have been able to hit on is redundancies (which they even had the gall to refer to at one point as 'right-sizing'!!)

Director Group Credit Risk (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 19 July 2017
Lots of meetings to engage key stakeholders. Limited autonomy to make key decisions. Senior exec limited access and visibility. Avoidance culture. ICT inhibiting required progress for growth and efficiency. The people were great to work with.
Used to be great place to work, not so much any more
Senior Network Engineer (Current Employee) – Macquarie Park NSW – 8 March 2017
Optus used to be great place to work, very friendly teams and atmosphere, but past 4 years have been going down hill with every year more people losing jobs due to outsourcing and Optus management team getting more and more out of touch with the workers. The belt has been squeezed tighter and tighter, soon we will have no more space to breathe. Pretty much every part of the company has been outsources now and things are no longer looking good at all.
