    Pros

    People, people, people. While most companies have a lot of BS about how they care for their people (before making folks redundant) SEEK is the real deal in this space.

    Cons

    Because people stay a long time, can be hard to go agains the ingrained opinions and habits. SEEK would benefit from a bit higher turnover in some departments.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at SEEK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company really invests in the people and in the long term. They did not retrench or cut salaries during COVID-19 lockdowns. It's not a place with short term PnL management but a place where we can really strategize about long term growth opportunities. Even when the business revenue was impacted the company continued to invest in building a strong brand and in retaining all its full-time employees. We even got WFH allowances despite the revenue taking a hit. SEEK Asia owns great brands like JobStreet and JobsDB. I was surprised to discover how dominant these brands are across Asia, and it's a very interesting challenge to innovate with such great brands to future-proof the business . I can see how the company has invested thousands in marketing capabilities. There is a lot of potential to really build marketing excellence and drive powerful brand strategy. The organization is transforming and there are a lot of great discussions on how we can continue to improve. It's the kind of place where a person can really contribute and make a difference. Great purpose as a company, with really good values. Great people and teammates. Had some very negative ones in the past, but most from that generation have left already. I've heard stories in the past, but after a year practically everyone I have met has been fantastic. I especially enjoy collaborating with people in different countries, and learning from the diversity in the team and from the wide range of roles and specializations.

    Cons

    Opportunity for different functions to collaborate more deeply.
