Reviews by TasNetworks graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.3GradAustralia surveyed 6 graduates working at TasNetworks. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 6 responses.
- Supportive of personal and professional development; Good support group and genuinely nice colleagues; Good range of business departments for choice of career;
- Mentoring, people.
- The people that you work with and the opportunities that are at your disposal
- The learning opportunities.
- Autonomy and freedom
- The only negative would be the fact that the company is going through change currently after a recent merger. A lot of computer systems are changing as well as some of the processes, leaving a few people 'unhappy' which is slowing down workflow.
- Restrictive in opportunities, very slow for work to progress.
- Poor work ethic amongst a few employees.
- The red tape and inability to effect change
What insiders say about…
As a substations engineer, I review internal and external drawings, I assist in the development and delivery of the rolling works program and I offer technical assistance to key internal stakeholders regarding incident investigations and simply the condition of the company's assets.
The leadership group tries to be visible and does a good job at afterhours events. The overall culture of the company is good - the company is full of capable people who are always willing to help and assist you in your development during work hours, and there are often social events after work in which employees get a chance to relax and get to know more people from around the business that they may not get to work with on a day to day basis. There are of course a few people that are fighting the change associated with the merger, but they are becoming few and far between and the majority have seen that this change is a positive thing for all.
I had a very friendly interview with two senior engineers.
Mainly behavioral questions with a couple of technical questions.
I would strongly recommend any candidate to strive to improve both their interpersonal and technical skills.
We have flexible start and finish times, as long as you do your 7.5hrs per day. Flex time is also optional if you go over time.
Excellent training and professional development opportunities.
Managers are overall pretty good. However there is definitely an issue with performance management.
The company is very supportive of training and personal development. They are also good in the fact that they organise the "soft skills' training, and they leave the organisation of the technical skills training to us. We are to find the courses, justify the reasons we should attend, and then the company will support us. This is great as it puts some responsibility on graduate engineers shoulders and allows them basically free range to discover which courses will most help them through their career. This allows for individuality in personal development and recognises that all graduates do not have the exact same interests or career goals.
When opportunities arise, the hiring process is very fair and the opportunity to move up is recognised and often rewarded. The opportunities may be few and far between however due to being a relatively small company and job openings require movement of people. As yet, I have not had a problem.
The company is very supportive of diversity, the only thing that prevents more diversity in the workplace is the want for employees which want to stay in the Tasmanian business and not move on after they have done their graduate years. Investing in a persons career, obviously ideally the company wants return on that investment. Targeting people who wish to stay in this business long term would be the goal. Other than this, diversity is encouraged. There are currently talks around the company promoting STEM in schools for young females to introduce them to engineering, there are multiple examples of the company supporting maternity leave and part time work, the company hires many people with different ethnicity and the company is supporting my decision to return to study part time by allowing me some "study leave" days for professional development.
There is a big focus within TasNetworks to encourage unbiased development within Tasmania and to minimise our environmental impact.
Quite comfortable and I am very happy with the amount of space I have to work and where the office is located.
Being a Tasmanian company, the green state is very important and we are constantly researching innovative and renewable technology to introduce into the network. Additionally, most communications are done via email and not print-outs to limit the paper waste. There are also entire business groups who research ways to lessen our disruption to wildlife. There are a bunch of other initiatives, however I am not the correct person to discuss them and I am not fully around them all.Join us to bookmark!
