Seems a bizarre culture to foster, and I can’t help think it was only due to certain exec not wanting to move to Brisbane- I can only think of positives to consolidate as much of the head office and corporate functions as possible into the one building. Can only build collaboration and efficiency- not to mention reduce property costs in the current environment.
Granted it's not in a separate city but it's worth noting that QF also maintains a separate office (complete with sweeping harbour views) for their executive level staff in the Sydney CBD.
Also worth noting that it is walking distance for Alan Joyce from his home...
Where is this office located? QF used to have 'executive offices' in the CBD, at the Deutsche Bank building on Philip & Hunter, but after Mascot was redeveloped into the Qantas 'Campus' those offices were closed and the execs all relocated to Mascot. Are you saying that QF has since opened another suite of 'executive offices' in the CBD?
