    Very cohesive team, partners who care about employees and make it fun when possible.

    Tough interview process with several steps, so be prepared! This is what keeps our team so strong. We care. .

    Pros

    Big organisation, opportunities unlimited , great benefits and good work-life balance and good training programmes and a very beautiful office.

    Cons

    exclusive culture and not inclusive. Organisation going through the growing pains of transformation. many functions within departments are not integrated and thus creates a lot of unnecessary workload.

    Advice to Management

    The need for culture to be more inclusive and enable new ideas to grow . Create an environment where emerging leaders like me can grow along with the organisation growth. Urgent need to change the lens where some intelligent risks can be taken by investing on the right talent. Great principles at senior management level but not so sure if the operations managers follow the Christmas tree.

    Pros

    Pay very well - particularly at the senior levels. Some smart people. Part of a duopoly with SunCorp which makes it safer for employees whilst not really being in the interest of the end consumer.

    Cons

    Highly risk averse culture where most people are afraid to speak up for fear of reprisal. Slow decision making due to a constant thirst for "more data". Analysis/Paralysis Many senior leaders driven by ego,insecurity, self interest or executive rem which profoundly affects organisation culture. Now beginning to take a holistic, enterprise view after years of silo'd thinking, internal competition and no leverage of an ample resource base

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more inclusive culture

    Pros

    Great offices in Auckland, great values, strong community ethic, desire to do the right thing for customers helps to make work more purposeful. Good benefits 50% insurance discount, good learning and development opportunities, generous bonuses when the company does well.

    Cons

    Large company bureaucracy, competition between different brands means shared services experience a lot of conflicting demand. Dramatic weather events, earthquakes, fires etc. mean work can become stressful in claims areas.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on priorities that are for the greater good of the whole company, rather than protecting your own patch.

    Pros

    Great development ops Great benefits eg discount insurance, leave policy Very fair & equitable in promoting & allowing sideways movement.

    Cons

    Very male top heavy who have worked their way up & have inferiority complex about those that have been there only a short time. Can be very siloed in its thinking across the organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Need to spend more time at the lower levels talking to staff as upward comms are very poor. Be more open in feedback & timely on important matters eg engagement
