What Graduates Say About Them
  • Work life balance - everyone is respectful of differing working hours and will make sure team members aren't logging off too late.
  • + Flexibility of Work From Anywhere. I'm able to come to the office 2 - 3 days a week and WFH for the rest! + Grad's are given a lot of opportunities to grow and expand their knowledge in their fields as well as collaborate with multiple departments and Business Units
  • People focus is the best value I learned at DuluxGroun
  • Room for flexibility, autonomy, and growth.
  • The people + culture, engaging work, development opportunities and constant investment in your development too
  • Very people focused and supports progression within the company
  • Technology and systems are outdated, and the process to upgrading these are slow
  • Some of management can be set in their ways (not all) making it hard to push through new ideas.
  • The outdated systems and convoluted filing systems How old and far the office is
  • Complicated business structure
  • It is a large company, which has benefits in terms of lots of different job opportunities in the same company, but a minus would be if you do not drive your own development and career goals you can get lost.
