The other thing that continues to surprise me is that despite the conservative business environment, Australians are, in fact, early adopters. There are some cultural challenges that we face around being collaborative versus competitive, getting over our fear of failing and our ability to think big. I am really hopeful, however, that we can resolve some of these challenges and increase our ability to innovate and claim our spot in the global landscape.
Australia's time is now. Massonstock — Elisa-Marie Dumas, head of partner development and corporate innovation at Investible 7. Everyone drives to work and the cost of living is enormous For a country with such a great climate and an outdoors lifestyle, it's a car culture. With the exception of Melbourne or Canberra, Australians like to drive even when there is a public transport alternative - and cities are designed to suit cars, not bikes, particularly Sydney.
Australia is shockingly expensive. You won't be living by the beach because you won't be able to afford it. I've known lots of expats who've transferred with their company and realised they totally underestimated the cost of living, especially if they planned to stay long term and buy a home.
The hours are longer but more flexible The first thing I noticed when I got my contract was the 8. Having been in media sales for seven years in London where it's only ever 9 or 9.
I had to call my sister in recruitment in Sydney to confirm! And then there is no "set lunch break". In the UK we had a blanket, industry-wide lunch break of pm. That goes hand in hand with how laid back it is! You're much more likely to text your boss when you're 10 minutes late from lunch elsewhere in the world than you would in good old 'Straya! Here it's a given that a you work hard so a few minutes here and there don't matter and b you're an adult!
I also feel like people socialise less after work here than in London. People have their own lives in both places, but more rubbish transport here limits their ability to "hang back" like you can in London where tubes and buses come every two minutes and take you everywhere. Whereas here it's a lot of "if I don't go now, my next ferry is an hour".
In some ways it puts you off, as it's just hassle. And talking about commuting, it is pretty different here. I have never before seen people form an orderly queue for a bus. In London it's a free-for-all — and loads of buses are so busy they don't even stop.
Employees are a little too comfortable It's a little awkward, but over the years I've had many conversations with fellow expats about how Australians are prone to laziness, at least compared with other countries like Britain, Ireland, and the US. Advertisement I think it's a combination of more than two decades of steady job creation and an industrial relations environment that makes it extremely difficult to sack people.
When jobs are as secure as they are in Australia, there is less of an incentive to be a star performer, to come in every day and smash it out of the park. People in countries where there have been downturns or where there is strong competition for every job will often work every day as if their life depends on it — because it does. Australians do great work, but it often feels like they do "just enough", rather than volunteering for challenging projects, starting early and finishing late, and consistently going the extra mile.
It's not that it's terrible for business, but you sometimes wonder if Australians truly realise how ferociously competitive it really is in the wider world. On Friday, we drink! I'm Malaysian and used to work in Malaysia.
Horrible Bosses 2 yet another comedy sequel that just ain’t equal
I would say the key difference is that drinks on Friday or in the office is common in Australia, but in Malaysia you would need to do it outside work out of respect. Work-life balance here is better obviously, and it is normal to pull longer hours in Malaysia. Also, other than workload, most Malaysians that I know choose to leave work later to avoid traffic and congestions with the public transport. I have to say work is as equally social here as in London and NYC, but there's much more of a "work culture" in Australia.
For example, post-work drinks, team outings, lunch BBQs etc — which is a mega plus! I'd also have to say that although the work ethic is equal, there's a much more relaxed and friendly vibe here in Australia. A client meeting may be over lunchtime drinks versus sitting in a board room.
I have to say overall there's much more of a "get shit done in work hours" type attitude here than elsewhere. Most people here work more effectively in the day to ensure they can leave on time.
I'd say Australia as a whole has a better work-life balance. There's a lot of slang The country is so big that it covers five distinct time zones, so if you want to run a national business you need to cover a huge range of business hours that would be the equivalent of supporting a customer base in Western Europe or North America but with a much smaller population and potential market.
You need to get use to the Aussie office slang. On Day 1, I personally encountered the following interesting twists on both the English language and indeed the normal office lexicon. Advertisement — A C-level executive at a national IT services firm Short-term thinking is a problem Without getting on a political soapbox I continue to be surprised at the short-termism of the Australian outlook. We've fallen in to the trap of focusing on the hour news cycle and the monthly results instead of having a long-term plan that involves real investment in our population and our capabilities.
We should be competing on the global stage on a much more regular basis. We're lucky enough to have a culture that encourages early adoption, so why don't we see more risk being taken? Despite the "give it a go" image, I'm always surprised that we tend to reward safe-playing mediocrity when we should be hugely more optimistic and competitive as a nation.
That change requires action, it takes a risk-aptitude and a willingness to fail, something that we have to encourage and foster. Australians value family time I moved to Australia from the US in As an expat, I see that the culture here is for Australians to work very hard and take their jobs and careers very seriously.
The biggest and most pleasant surprise is that Australians are equally serious about making sure there is a balance between work and other areas of their life like family and health. This balance seems to be intrinsically societal; that Australia has decided to place significant importance on being outside and spending time with family, as much so as working incredibly hard.
I think this is epitomised by so many companies closing for a week or more over the holidays to ensure their staff has down time to spend with family and enjoy the summer. What a great way to approach work and life! It might be a 'work hard, play hard' culture but people really do work hard I grew up in the UK and started working as a management consultant in Sydney 12 years ago. When I first started working in Australia I was immediately struck by the "work hard, play hard" culture that was often talked about.
My observation back then was in Australia, when compared with the UK and US, this was more skewed towards play rather than work as Australia's working days were typically shorter and holiday entitlements longer. Not necessarily a bad thing, just visibly different.

Fast forward 12 years and there is a noticeable difference in actual and expected working hours in our country. This is not necessarily desirable in the sense of work-life balance, but I would say the biggest change for me is in terms of productivity during working hours.
I certainly see a significant difference in how "hard" people are willing to work to achieve productivity gains. This is coming partly from working smarter, but also from taking more time than 12 years ago out of family and social time. It is an area that we need to watch as burn-out and work fatigue will become real concerns for companies and employees.
There's not a specific pub that everyone goes to after work I'm from the UK and worked in London for eight years before moving to Sydney.
I think one of the biggest differences is the out of work culture between London and Sydney. In London there is the pub culture and all the media companies and lots of my friends from other industries too have their preferred "local" where half the company congregate on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night.
You could pretty much turn up on your own to your local knowing that there would be a ton of people you knew there. Even in the winter all these pubs are full of people out on the pavement having after-work drinks.
Over here I don't think that it's less social, but I think people are more health consciousmake more plans in the evening and also have a higher proportion of people who drive to work, hence the reluctance to go for spontaneous drinks after work. Employees speak their minds in front of their superiors [Originally from Israel and] having worked in London and Hong Kong, what surprised me most about the Australian working culture is that its people are very genuine and straightforward.
There is very little consideration for hierarchy or seniority within the social structure. People are often encouraged to speak their minds in front of their superiors.
It's refreshing to see that everyone's voice is heard and there are very few social formalities within the Australian working culture. Australians would rather solve problems themselves than ask for help Coming from working in both London and Kuala Lumpur I've found Australia much more forward-thinking, with a work hard, play hard culture.
Other things I noticed are: There aren't as many big corporates, so lots of other business people I meet are in small businesses or start-ups. In general, people tend to try to solve a problem themselves before asking. This contrasts with South-east Asia, where a lot of people do very specific jobs to the bare minimum and don't aspire to progress much further in their careers.
In Asia it is the done thing to hang out with colleagues at the weekend, but here people seem to have many different friendship groups outside of work — which is refreshing. The time zone isn't an issue One of the reasons I wanted to move here [from the UK] was the embrace the work-life balance culture… The other thing is the time zone. Sure, working across a global business can have its challenges for leadership meetings — but on the whole I've worked for US California-based companies for a while and it works well for me.
I get up early and it's just late morning for them, so I take calls during my commute. By my afternoon they've all gone home and we can get our Monday started whilst America is still enjoying their weekend.
