Manager (Former Employee) – Auckland, Auckland – 23 January 2017
A great company to work for because of its culture about the community and its people.
Things changed when the company was taken over by a bigger Australian bank. The people and community culture shifted.
I had worked with colleagues for over 20 years and it was and still is a fun place to work for.
A typical day would be everyone is self motivated to come in and start their day. Daily debriefs were common, and weekly target meeting updates occurred. This was consistent throughout the organisation. Everyone had a role and the company was very well structured.
The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the changes whether with process improvement or technology. You learned to embrace and go with it as it was guaranteed to make life a little easier.
Caring management from CEO to team leaders
Perception some teams were not accountable to the bottom line as seen with their team spends
Nice modern office in CBD, enjoy the work but downside is the Team culture
Wealth Manager (Former Employee) – Auckland – 15 September 2019
Enjoyed working with other wider Teams, always busy and productive with a lot of activities and opportunities on the go. However the Wealth division is very political and toxic. Best not to question processes or when something is not right as it will come back to haunt you. Feedback has little meaning once the top makes the decision. Top-down communication lacking. Toxic people who has been around for a long time, spread rumour and gossips like wild fire. Team manager is not a people person and is concerned about figures only. Has no interest in you as a person especially evident on the day you resign. Don't be surprised a verbal threat is what you hear as you are walked out the door when you join a competitor.
