Pros

Good people, community / sustainability agenda, supportive of employees, good compensation and flexible work practices. The Company offers opportunities for career growth.

Cons

Tough time for insurance, poor financial results in 2008. Company is current in a significant period of change and is shifting to a decentralised model. Once this is completed, I expect we will move to a very positive outlook. QBE has been stalking the Group, so there is a possibility of a takeover in the next 12 to 18 months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on getting the key things right and restoring the Group to solid profitability.

    Pros

    relaxed environment, good work/life balance, you can go home on time most of the time, most people here are nice, although you know there are difficult people everywhere,supportive for further education.

    Cons

    some team might not be very effective, so you have to wait for a long time for them to response although you've chased them again and again. Some managers are paying more attention on their family rather than the work here.

    Pros

    - good chance to grow into leadership positions if you like politics
    - you have a lot of spare time that you can use for personal development

    Cons

    - legacy code written by less qualified programmers
    - insurance business in NZ grows by acquisition, there are 100s of insurance related software products that require support and integration
    - everything moves very slow, you may get used to that and it will numb your brain
    - SCRUM is used as an excuse to keep too many developers busy with something
