Pros & Cons
Optus has an amazing culture, everyone is very friendly! My team is so supportive and willing to teach, which made me feel confident and comfortable to ask questions and learn. The best things about the Optus Graduate programme is that I was given opportunities to work on actual projects, I can develop my career through experiencing different roles in the rotations, and get to meet so many new friends!

What Insiders Say
The channels are clearly defined and colleagues want to see you succeed which is a great motivator to perform at your best.
Optus has flexible working hours with a flat hierarchy, everyone works as a team. It is fun working in the office! There are many cafes on campus, it's easy and relaxing to have catch-ups with graduates and colleagues from time to time!
Optus places great importance on diversity and inclusivity. They provide support in every area in terms of issues such as maternity leave and child care. The diversity at Optus is amazing as they respect and support all different groups with pride.
My role is very dynamic and involves an ebb and flow of projects. Some days may be very busy, other days may not be. Day-to-day responsibilities include having meetings with different people from the business to co-create and align strategies together for particular projects, building programs and processes and creating reports ('slide decks') for the team.
Very happy with both direct and higher up management. They are available whenever I need them and they make time to help me with whatever I ask for. Recognition is a nice factor, even in times I don't believe I have done anything particularly amazing I receive positive feedback.
Many training programs are available on the HR platform, e.g. compliance training, soft-skills training. Optus also assigns a grad buddy to each graduate, who would share their past experience and help us when we face any challenge at work.
Company is very flexible and allows you to work your own hours, granted you complete your tasks. I love that you can take time to go to appointments and make up for the work hours at a later or earlier time.
