      Pros

      Meet some really nice people to work with, campus is nice but quite far from the city.

      Cons

      Depending on your department you will work very long hours. Not much scope to take risks especially when controlled by parent company. Many things said are just for face, and not always commital.

      Optus is heavily invested in being the most loved brand. This is driven by ensuring all employees feel valued and enjoy working for Optus. A wise man once said, if your employees are happy, they will ensure your customer is happy.

      Cons

      It is hard to find a downside to working for Optus. It is very comforting to come to work with colleagues that I have worked with for many years. Its like a second family. This speaks to employees being happy at work
