Centre Services Supervisor (Former Employee) – Singleton NSW and Manus Island – 28 May 2018
My typical day at work is to organise myself,setting my day out,reading emails and clients request for the day, see the manager find out what they need doing.Once the staff have arrived for work we do a pre-start with them, see how everyone is feeling for the day ,doing some mild stretches , than allocating request to the team leaders so they can get there team organised for the day.. Most enjoyable time of the day for me is to see a happy team at the start to the finish.
Category Officer (Former Employee) – North Sydney NSW – 22 May 2018
The procurement team is biased and is a whom you know kind of system when it comes to recruitment. Pays below Market rate and expects to be high performers. A lot of movement and a very inexperienced executive lead who seems to be a pet of the head of procurement. Procurement is not procurement at Broadspectrum. Brought in as an officer and expected to work as a category manager with pay of peanuts. The Spanish takeover seems good but they only know what they know
Some good team members but again mostly contractors
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Western Sydney, NSW – 17 March 2018
Worked for Transfield Services (now Broadspecrum) for 7 years, experienced both good and bad periods across a number of roles, however the whole time I was there I felt undervalued and underpaid.
In the final year of me working for them, I worked 110+ hours a week, every week and was loaded with at least three times that of any of my colleagues in the same position. I was paid under $80k including super and tax.
The termination of my employment with the company was soul destroying, and handled horribly.
The management promote work/life balance, career progression and good culture, yet knowingly act very differently... ensuring they have a good work/life balance, not their sub-ordinates, they create a horrible workplace by talking poorly about staff and management to others staff and management, and don’t promote from with in - making that decision well before interviews even begin.
The company once was an amazing place to work, at least I am told - It had great potential to be great, but there’s no way it can be with the people that are there now, the culture is now to inbred to be removed. It is incredibly sad.
Relocation opportunities nationally and internationally, Tend to keep staff on for long periods.
Poor work/life balance, Poor pay conditions, Bad culture, Company seems to change direction too often
Compliance Auditor (Current Employee) – NSW and ACT – 14 January 2018
Productive well organised, overall very efficient and well managed.
Could do with extra training for advancement.
A typical day at work will be supervising workers at various Tesltra sites all around NSW and ACT where we have construction and maintenance being performed. I supervise the contractors in their performance according to Work, Health and Safety and their overall performance of compliance in a communications environment. Safety and security is paramount in the day to day operations of the Telstra buildings. The various trades of electrical plumbing, air conditioning of these buildings is a 100 million dollar operation annually. Culture is all part of the way I go about dealing with 100s of workers from different trades and backgrounds safety and productivity going hand in hand to produce a great working environment.
