Pros

Flexibility was a major pro on start of position, this has changed, and priorities of organization have shifted to Asia.

Cons

Not a great place to work any longer as no flexibility or budgets exist. Current management is only interested in slashing costs at the detriment of strategic projects.

    I have been working at New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great design lead culture, willing to change and adapt. Customer focused

    Cons

    org needs to be flatter, not a lot of thought filters down to staff that ultimately provide the User Expereince to the customers, need to work on that

    Advice to Management

    Pay more: Need to match salaries to match increased standard of living, otherwise I have to leave

    Pros

    Very well funded, 5 weeks off a year, management not results driven so relatively stress free.

    Cons

    Lots of complaints from clients, most customer managers and upper management haven't worked in the private sector for over 8 years so the fact that they're giving out 'advice' to business owners often doesn't help. Lots of talking, not much doing. I recently did some consulting work for NZTE and wasn't surprised at how ineffective and slow moving they still are, turned down an extension- it was painful even getting paid.

    Advice to Management

    I'd second the other reviews of xenophobia within the agency, NZTE is notoriously slow when it comes to being welcoming and open to non-kiwis/non-whites.
