Pros & Cons

  • The work environment is highly flexible, I am offered a lot of opportunities and am also able to take advantage and enable myself by picking up extra tasks as though I was a permanent team member. The majority of people are very open to communicating and assisting me, and I feel like there are a lot of people who are on my side and just as involved in seeing myself succeed. The company is very open about breaking down existing silos and is interested in striving towards continuous improvement from the ground upwards. Heavily relationship based, which forces you to communicate more frequently and openly when your projects affect others.
  • Self Managed Flexi-Time
  • The positive and friendly culture is the best thing about my organisation. The people have been welcoming and happy to lend a helping hand. For us graduates, there are also a lot of training opportunities available to us and my experience has been that people within the organisation are eager to allow you get involved in as much as possible.
  • My co-workers are very nice and are always willing to help me out
  • The flexi hours are fantastic. There is no stress about going to work 'late'. You can also choose to have a long day earlier in the week to have a shorter day later in the week.
  • I believe the best thing about working at Landgate is the culture. I have felt welcomed every time and people are easily approachable. In my experience so far, I haven't had issues with anyone and it's a smaller organisation which means it's quite easy to figure out what's where and who does what.
  • I enjoy the breadth and diversity of work at Landgate. It is great to have the opportunity to collaborate with different areas and functions of the business. I am constantly learning something new about what Landgate does and enjoy meeting new people, all of whom are friendly, supportive and passionate about delivering meaningful results for the business and state.
  • I believe Landgate is relatively diverse with a large number of women in leadership roles and in terms of employing people from diverse backgrounds.
  • It's a slower pace than companies I have worked for before, and while 80% of people tend to get back to me, there is the occasional 20% who don't respond to emails. In a graduate position, there is some uncertainty towards my employment once the program ends, and the program is shorter than most, running only for a year while many others go for 2+ years.
  • The work I do is often adding value but it's difficult to pin-point exactly where it aligns with the organisations long term vision and objective.
  • It's in Midland
  • If I had to be very picky, the quality of training could be better. My colleagues are extremely busy with their work which means I may have to wait a while before receiving some help in my training.
  • I believe there isn't a focus on customers/users of our products and services. I find it very difficult to relate what I do to how it better serves the organisation's customers.
  • One downfall of working at Landgate is the career uncertainty upon completion of the 12-month graduate program. Whilst it is interesting having the opportunity to complete rotations in different areas of the business, there is not a confirmed role for graduates upon the completion of the program. This causes some uncertainty in regards to career mapping. I love the day-to-day work at Landgate, my concerns often relate to future employment prospects within the business, which align with my qualifications and career aspirations.

Career Prospects
Promotions are based on one's merit to deliver quality work in a specified time frame. Employees must show they are capable in their current role before they are promoted to a 'senior' level of that same role. There are also advertisements from time to time which indicate that Landgate is looking for someone to fill in that spot for X amount of time. Sometimes that role will be of a higher level than the one you are currently in. If you check all the boxes, you can apply for that role. At the end of the day, time in combination with experience will usually yield a promotion.

Landgate has a variety of initiatives that aims to give back to the community, such as the Aspire program which is currently working on the renaming of our meeting rooms in traditional noongar language. As part of the Strategic Communications team, we are assisting with the display of the commissioned artwork around the building, of which I am personally working on. Some additional initiatives Landgate engages in are: LandGive (organised approached to charity donations) International Women's Day sponsorships School mentoring HackEd - in school Hacks run by SPUR

Culture
8.1
Culture
There is a very positive and friendly culture in my organisation. From my experience, a very collaborative approach is taken within the organisation from people both within their business area and from different business areas. In terms of socialising amongst colleagues, there is an established social club that you can join. As a Graduate, I frequently socialise during lunchtime with the other Graduates, or meet up for a coffee before we start work. There is also a great initiative called "Coffee Connect" where once a month those who wish to participate are matched with an individual from within the business and are encouraged to meet up with them for a short time, it's a great way to meet people from across the business and learn about their role within the organisation.

Satisfaction

Satisfaction
The day-to-day responsibilities of a Graduate at Landgate are fantastic. I have had the opportunity to take full responsibility for projects, which has required me to liaise with internal and external stakeholders, organise meetings and schedule relevant deadlines. I have learnt a lot from these opportunities and know these skills will be transferable and valuable throughout my career.

Management

Management
I am satisfied with my seniors. The directors and managers seem to know what they're doing. They are sometimes accessible, depending on their schedule and they make good mentors and set an example for others. For me though, I interact and communicate a lot with my team lead. He gives me the most and helpful feedback and any recognition in the work I do for the team.

Office Work Environment
Landgate has a large 3 story office building to our disposal that we have been located in for 26 years in Midland, the company has just about completed a large project in amalgamating all staff to a more compressed area of the building to save energy. The workspaces are modern and of open-office design, the dress code fairly flexible but still smart casual. The building is located in Midland but slightly outside of the main drag, with ample parking available to all staff.

The application process was thorough and I enjoyed that the graduate coordinator would often provide updates in relation to my application progress. As I was an interstate applicant, I conducted my interview via Skype.

Work Hours
On average, I work 37.5 hours a week. I feel this is very normal and its the amount your average employee would have. This is where Landgate is amazing with their flexi hours system. You kick start your weekend early, that's awesome!!

With 90% of all emails we get, we always get notified to think twice before printing the email. There are also recycling bins for us to use. I clearly see efforts from Landgate in reducing their environmental footprint.
