I work in a small, but efficient and close team that gets along both in the office and after hours. I report to a single manager, but work with other managers within the team. Socialising amongst colleagues is encouraged, and is easy, particularly amongst the graduates.
Australia Post is very flexible with hours, and believes very strongly in having a healthy work-life balance. Managers are very approachable, and staff are generally very supportive.
Sense of community, senior leaders are often accessible
Very open and engaging. Managers are a part of the team and are easy to chat to. The teams want to know about your life outside of the office. Socializing at the moment is harder because of COVID but beforehand we would have coffee catch ups of after work drinks. There is a good balance between making sure we have a chance to chat and laugh but also get the work done in our meetings.
With COVID this has changed slightly, but prior the culture was excellent. Fun outside work activities, team lunches and morning chats. Work hours were flexible, as long as you were productive and getting what you needed to done, no one questioned how you went about your day. COVID has made this a lot harder but I still feel supported even having started in a new team (who I've never met in person).
