Pros & Cons

  • People and work culture: DuluxGroup is home to some of the best people to work with. The work culture is really friendly and supportive. Given this was my first job straight out of uni, I felt welcomed when I joined the company, made friends and fit right in soon after.
  • Job security: DuluxGroup really looks after its employees. This was especially evident during the COVID-19 pandemic when the company really supported its employees through uncertainty.
  • Ability to move across the business: As many well-known brands and business functions fall under the DuluxGroup umbrella, the business is very open to employees moving across the different brands and functions to further their professional development.
  • Flexibility: Maintaining work-life balance at DuluxGroup is not a problem at all. The company offers flexible hours and managers are supportive if people's priorities shift requiring flexible working arrangements.
  • Learning: The graduate program its one the best learning opportunities that I have experienced. More importantly I had an opportunity to meet people from other SBUs and learn more about DuluxGroup.
  • As a grad, some work and tasks can seem insubstantial.
  • There are many departments, which sometimes leads to a delay in decision-making.
  • Still developing its own ability/standards around some technical areas.

Since I have been with the company, we have been involved with the department of conservation, pet refuge, surf lifesaving and we've painted a local school playground which I was a part of. I will likely run a community project for the grad program this year as well.

I have interacted with all different levels of the company - the graduates had a meeting with the CEO, I've worked closely with the head of safety, the head of learning, and supply chain leaders. I've worked with great managers and they all offer huge amounts of support.

Salary
I am satisfied with my pay. As a graduate, I have realistic expectations. My criticism would be pay cycles, I think a monthly pay cycle is suited to high earners and challenging for lower earners within a company. It's something that has resulted in challenging months that are hard to recover from when unexpected costs come up.

More importantly, I had an opportunity to meet people from other SBUs and learn more about DuluxGroup.
