What Graduates Say About Them
  • The culture and people is a big plus. Everyone is friendly and works together well. The support from management is also good. They are open to giving graduates a lot of responsibility from day one which leads to amazing development opportunities.
  • Community aspect, variety of workload
  • Working in smaller teams where you play a big part. The company has lots of projects going on and a variety of innovative ideas which graduates get the opportunity to be involved in. The team culture is really great, very inclusive.
  • Everyone is super friendly and always keen to help with any questions you have. The workplace is very chilled out and it makes it very easy to complete work.
  • Work load, lack of targeted personal development
  • The pay rises between each rotation could be improved.
  • It can be frustrating sometimes having the company spread across two countries. Being in New Zealand while head office is in Australia can mean there are some admin things that are made way harder than they have to be.

My one piece of advice is to take on any opportunities that come your way, even if they don’t sound attractive at the time - just do it! This has paid off really well for me while at IXOM.

I think the best part of the graduate program is that through your rotations you get to see different corners of the business you wouldn’t ordinarily see if you stayed in one role.
