There are formal mentoring programs for new graduates which allow access to some fantastic senior executive members of staff.
Through the graduate program I was very supported with senior mentors, other graduates as buddies and supervisors. There was a structured performance review for each placement. Post graduate program I am currently on a short term contract where there is limited formal performance review however my manager does praise and provide feedback as necessary.
There is strong engagement with executive and role-modelling of change behaviors occurs at the senior levels. Top-down communication pathways are sometimes inadequate. There is a strong culture that encourages informal mentoring opportunities.
Managers are very accessible and often are willing to provide guidance and advice. Internal communication is often very casual, performance feedback is constructive and positive, and recognition of work is constant
