    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Qantas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good culture, smart people, amazing flight benefits, people are collaborative front end development is what this business is all about.

    Cons

    Strategy to white label means huge dependancy on other partners to deliver changes which typically competes against other competitor partners. Not much control on the back end component with other partners as it involves long lead times, especially for banking partners.

    Advice to Management

    Introduce product(s) or features which are truly innovative and what customers are asking for. Some of the financial service products are seen as 'follower' type products rather than those considered as 'pioneers' and would benefit greatly if more bold and brave decisions are made. Management should consider bringing products which are not necessarily in the mature market but ones which are also in the... growth/developing stage of the product life cycle.
