What Graduates Say About Them
  • Great organisational culture, working arrangements are extremely flexible and understanding. Lots of opportunities to do impactful work and take ownership in your graduate program, with very friendly colleagues who have your best interest in mind. Toxicity is not tolerated and everyone's comfort is prioritised which is great.
  • Flexibility, diversity and lots of opportunities to grow your career locally and globally.
  • Everyone shows support towards each other and tries to ensure that you are feeling comfortable in your job and position.
  • Management and team. My direct managers have created a supportive environment for me in my first rotation. The specialists in my team were also very helpful with my development and onboarding. I am grateful for the connections I have made in the program.
  • Very few people come and work in the office, most choose to work remotely. might change after we move into the new office next year.
  • Large organisation - things move slowly and can be difficult to navigate.
  • It's a very big company. It is bit complicated in the beginning to get start with all the information at a time.
  • Less people are coming to the office so there's lies opportunity to network in the office, but there's networking events and morning teas to make up for it.
