Very good in a word, friendly colleagues, easy going managers and helpful staffs. Even though they manage through 3rd party contractors still pay a good amount to live a normal life in such a beautiful city.

The work culture at Visionstream the parent company of Broadspectrum was really a reflection of the ethnic owners who regard people as a commodity not an asset. If you look at the reviews of Visionstream and i m sure Broadspectrum now they are under the Ventia umbrella you will find the word toxic is the most common of words.As they are a giant Spanish company devouring local firms we will find this something that will infect the local market with their brutal HR department's wearing down and spitting out employees like vomit.As part of management i had first hand experience how HR managed people out of positions by making their jobs untannable and it was this along with disgraceful management of contractors that made me resign.This company that charges the Australian government billions to roll out NBN and then goes about withholding proper payments to increase overall profit by millions is really a blight on us as Australians.
Pros
Backhanders and free lunches
Cons
Toxic workplace

Cons
Some kind of tax scam that said i was paid 6gs more than I was for use of the vehicle, Let go without promisrd promotion

Every single pay check has been wrong and it is like pulling teeth to get it corrected and be paid the right amount. I am regularly asked to work longer shifts with no notice, at locations that I have never been to before and there is no one there to show me what to do. I've had to lock up buildings and then return the keys the next day in my personal time.

Engineers and designers are expected to hit the ground running from day one. It gets easier by the day, thanks to supportive team mates. Documentation was easy to generate, as long as you know how to use Excel. Working hours are flexible. No guarantees to make an employee permanent.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
Unlikely to make an employee permanent; no visible career path

Cons
Area to cover

-Over hire casual staff with limited shifts or no shifts. - Cleaning supervisor lack of management skill and no clarity of what are the expectations, what are the tasks of jobs need to be done. Worker is blamed to not perform. - Payroll errors result in short pay hours or penalties. Also, not receive pay on time. In sum, it is not a fair company to work for as you get ripped off pay

There is a lot to learn at Broadspectrum, especially with them providing the services to Defence. I found the manager very fair and accommodating. There was a lot of professional development offered and there is opportunities to advance into different areas. We have a good team at Broadspectrum.

Broadspectrum were awarded a contract to run the bus service where I worked. There was a lack of advancement opportunities, a clear distinction between operational staff and back office staff. There was a lack of acceptance of the difficulties faced by operations. The operations contract of Broadspectrum was taken over by a another company in 20018

Was a very busy organisation that required attention to detail and required someone that is able to reply to RFP's and research various industries and services.

Operations Manager will not let Team Leaders provide character references, which is unethical. These also favouritism and unbias treatment. These no room for growth no pay reviews nothing.
