    Senior Test Analyst in Brisbane QLD

    Very competitive
    It was very complex and very interesting applications, but the Business Analysts were very helpful. Documentation was adequate for the New CR's but the existing systems had no documentations, made it hard to understand the current systems.

    Toxic work environment. Zero job security. No support or training.
    Toxic work environment. If you don’t fit the mould they will kick you to the curb. No training provided, no performance improvement opportunities. HR is useless and zero job security. Every 1-2 years if you are on contract you have to reapply and hope you get an interview and hope you get chosen if you are already in the role. Very short term contracts offered, some only a few weeks. I was on contract for 5 years and never offered permanency.

    toxic culture, bullying by management and unsupportive HR. fraudulent activity.
    loved the work. intended to retire in job. left due to management behaviour - particularly regional manager and his team. HR witnessed but would not acknowledge.
    Senior Psychologist in Perth WA

    Top heavy organisation
    Extremely disappointed working under multiple levels of tired and resentful middle management holding onto permanent positions awaiting retirement. Corporate restructure saw respected, well educated and experienced staff lost to voluntary redundancies and positions safest within lower management held by those most willing to cut meagre budgets, force redundancies and merge teams. Following mothers death, received phone call from disengaged program manager to be told that two days are granted as paid bereavement leave but any more time taken will require an application to receive unpaid leave. Returned to dying bunch of petrol station flowers on desk.
