Great teamwork, support and competencies amidst all the organizational restructure
GIS/CAD Technical Specialist (Current Employee) –  Perth, WA26 November 2014
Biggest challenge to my task is performing data and process analysis within a structure that is still evolving as an organization, thus delivering outputs while quickly integrating new processes and standards being put in place as you go. Learning requires that you stay connected and alert with the changes, and integrate these in your approach on data analysis immediately. Typical day at work is a hot coffee by my desk, working with the GIS software and data while intermittently on the phone and emails communicating data findings for validation with stakeholders, or providing assistances on software and data. We have a very supportive and friendly environment at work, and communication and support on the national team is too easy via desk tools and video conference rooms. Management have full support although challenge is there in terms of how to really maximize the use of GIS technology and how to understand what the GIS guys do and why we need more resources in this area. Hardest part of the job seem to be underestimation of the GIS tasks at hand from the management, so that if you are not into automations, stress of repetitive manual data analysis will get to you. Most enjoyable part of the job is that telecommunications is a new interesting area for me, and we are mainly using CAD as our main GIS software, so comes all the learnings on integration with more advanced GIS softwares and writing the automations that comes with it.
Pros
Travels and flights, gets to be part of exciting startup of enterprise GIS
Cons
Basic level on GIS technology appreciation in the management level

Start up org with great learning opportunities and benefits
Manager, New Developments (Current Employee) –  pennant hills13 October 2013
Typically at NBN Co your day will start with at least 3 meetings a day, nationally, working across several business areas to align stakeholders to your project. You will have a huge amount of work to do and a lot of searching for the right people to assist you, your day will end in the dark hours and you'll likely have made a impact on the grand plan and felt good about it.

Having had the opportunity to work across different divisions delivering corporate projects i have personally learnt a great deal not only industry specific knowledge but i have learnt a lot about other peoples roles and tools they use to do their jobs. The pace is fast in NBN Co there are plenty of areas to grow and to learn from.

Co-workers are task focused and generally frustrated, there is no culture here yet.

Hardest part of the job is being dependable on other teams to get your tasks/projects moving forward, particularly in this organisation where we relay on many external contracting organisations to help us deliver, it can become quite political.

The most enjoyable part of the job is finalizing tasks and seeing the impact our work is having towards the goal of connecting the country to world class infrastructure.
Pros
lots to learn and many internal opportunities, fast paced.
Cons
lacks senior support and culture
