Welcome to Part 1 of our blog series, #LeadWithOptus. Over the next nine weeks, we will be reading and sharing feedback from the book Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek. Optus employees have been asked to read and reflect on the ideas in Leaders Eat Last to help them challenge their thinking and develop their leadership skills. Here at Optus, we believe that while everyone may not be in a leadership role in the traditional sense, everyone can lead and help advance the company.
Yes, definitely. Optus is a great place to work. You get a chance to talk to people regarding their issues face to face which is far better than just a phone call. Optus has a great work environment, warm welcome, smiling faces all day, and flexible working hours.
Optus has given me the opportunity to learn phone system testing and installation that I would never have the chance to do. Since learning these new skills, I have started traveling to customers’ sites and installing the equipment.
Optus has ultimately given me clarity of my future career path. Whether or not this industry is something you’re interested in, Optus will further develop your skills and give you tools you can take with you into any job.
Optus sets you up for success. I have only had part-time jobs and internships before Optus, so I don’t have much to compare it to; however, Optus has been the best about providing me with a plethora of resources for me to do my job as well as a path to grow within the company and my own career.
