I was employed as FinancevOfficer as an intern for four months and I learned that First StatenSuper uses more advance technology. This was my first job in Australia and I was very excited and learned so much in a short period of time.
I really enjoyed working at First State Super as from day one I felt as a part of the team even though I was there as just casual staff. I ended up getting my position extended here as the receptionist who i was there to cover returned but they found me another role as a facilities officer.

FSS does not sponsor non-Australian residents for permanent positions
A company that spends a lot of time and effort trying to do as little as possible and resisting change at every turn. Like a lot of industry funds they have virtually no concept of competitive markets because they get a guaranteed 9.5 % growth plus investment returns that make them think that they are growing when their net member growth is stagnant. This will come home to roost eventually - but it will be too late. Simply have no long term vision or the desire to aspire to achieve it.
Well paid, given you dont have to work that hard
Drifting along with no real impetus for change or competitive practices
