    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Melbourne

    I worked at Simplot Australia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good family feel about the company . Treated well and not just a number like at large corporate companies. Flexible working arrangements. Most people start early and are gone by 4pm. Work from home one day a week.

    Cons

    Old school technologies in IT. Lack of after work social activities. Being siloed into being an SME at one particular thing and having to focus on that.

    Advice to Management

    The new MD is a breath of fresh air and is introducing some exciting things. Other managers need to follow suit instead of being stuck in their ways.

    Pros

    Great if you're looking for family-friendly retail/ sales/marketing roles with major brands.

    IT is not future-focused, instead, they over-build projects.

    Advice to Management

    Consider which departments are holding others back. Who wants to move faster and who is holding them back.

    Pros

    Sometimes you can get the left over products for the cheap price for some forms of staff benefits, the working environment is ok.

    Cons

    The team leader gets selected by the shift manger, hard to get promoted. It is more about how you get along well with your line manager rather than you ability

    Advice to Management

    Select a proper team leader and form a good team. Review the staffs performance more equall.
