Pros & Cons

  • The people and great company culture, workplace flexibility, development opportunities.
  • Opportunity for sponsored professional development, opportunity to carve your path in the business and opportunity to do meaningful and challenging work.
  • Good culture reflected in the willingness to train up new starters. Everyone is always happy for questions to be asked and all contributions are valued.
  • A graduate program with rotations - exposure to a range of areas within my discipline. Workplace flexibility.
  • Great culture, great support and mentorship from management, a wide range of opportunities for graduates
  • Unpredictable industry can cause a bit of uncertainty e.g. company restructures
  • Management expectations can sometimes be misaligned with what is achievable.
  • Slow to move on big projects
  • Still a lot of manual work and testing, which leaves minimal time for analysis work
  • The only challenge so far is the fact that the industry, and TAL itself has undergone significant change. This has created some complexity in my day to day responsibilities. However, I have taken this as a challenge to try and simplify work processes.

Career Prospects
After the two year Graduate program there is opportunity to move into a permanent role one or two levels up, depending on your performance and capabilities. It is almost fully guaranteed you will end up in a role after the program as the company invests in a 5 year budget plan for graduates. The only slight concern is not being put into an area of first preference (depending on the business needs). You will need to provide a backup 2nd option at the end of your grad program. But so far all previous grads have been able to move into a role they like and of their choice.

Generally 9am-5pm, occasional over time where necessary. Company is great with flexibility and if you have personal appointments to attend to etc. they are very understanding. We also have remote working options and sometimes I work from home instead of physically coming into the office.
