Always felt welcome and supported. Progress on addressing concerns can sometimes take longer than one would normally expect due to a large number of stakeholders wanting to be involved in outcomes.

The place has great people, but they lack the roadmap an as they are a large company you tend to lose the people aspect and respect that smaller organisation tend to have. As for a change role it makes it very difficult to manage.

Telstra was a great place to work and they offer many opportunities if you wish to move around the organisation. The teams of people are brilliant and they end up being part of a wider family. The job I did could be stressful at times, but Management always had my back.

None of the day is same and I learned a lot from my one-up manager and my team-mates. Diverse workplace culture where everyone helps others when in need. The hardest part of job being not able to contribute enough. The most enjoyable part being able to balance work and life during hard times.

Never would I ever again work for a company who allows managers to bully and belittle staff everyday.
It's all about who likes who not who's good at their job.

Hr department is a joke and doesn't take any bullying or harrasment claims seriously

I feel a little underappricated in the work place and I am constantly being thrown in the deep end learning brand new skills and systems.
There is also not a huge amount of room for professional growth.

However I do work with some great people who support me and my team leader constantly is looking out for me.

It is also very difficult to take annual leave which is frustrating as the job can be draining.

Telstra is a great place to work. The people are fantastic, but the multiple restructures do wear you down.
The outsourcing of a number of support roles to overseas makes things difficult, however the team sticks together and supports each other.
