The company is awesome to work for. They really care about their employees. Lots of employee benefits, and competitions between branches. Lots of support available if needed. Only left the job as I moved to live in Australia.

A typical day at Kiwibank with Lending ops was hectic, but fun. We were a team and worked together to ensure the job was done efficiently and within time frames. I really did and still do love the Kiwibank culture. We have each others back, we empower each other and we work as a team.
I was able to grow and take charge of my personal development, setting goals and meeting these within agreed time frames.

Rolled out the move from paper base settlements to online based settlements.
Pros
We were a team, Banking benefits, Morning tea shouts, recognition
Cons
I had to travel 3 hours a day

The environment at work was relieved by playing the table tennis during break or times when we were stressed. this helps us to feel relax and than we can focus on our work.
Pros
Free bees
Cons
Focus on work as was related with money all day.

I worked for Kiwibank as a contractor for over a year. The organisation has poor workplace culture and work life balance.

The workload is very high and the culture has become increasingly combative and aggressive and stressful to work in over the years. Senior managers are always trying to undermine each others positions so they can reach their personal career objectives. Unfortunately I have witnessed a lot of my colleagues being bullied by their managers and employees are increasingly suffering from burn out, it was not a pleasant environment to work in.


Basically Kiwibank is no different from any other bank but tries to sell their brand and image as something unique and different, but unfortunately it's internal organisational culture and values could not be further apart from the image they portray.


I was not impressed with the executive team at all and would not recommend Kiwibank as an organisation to work for in the long term.
Cons
Poor culture and work life balance

Kiwibank has been a great place to work however, the remuneration for the amount of work some staff do is not up to market rate. this is especially clear where staff are given more work to their BAU role.

Kiwibank is a young organisation with a great culture that try to make a change in New Zealand approach to Banking. It's not scared of the new way to do things and try new technologies to achieve it, I'm grateful that I'm a part of the team that implements new technologies around the business in here.

The banking part is really good and enjoyable the helpdesk team are amazing but with the amount of work i do the pay is no where near enough. It is most definately the lowest out of all the branches for a CSR manager. Its absolutely shocking.
Cons
Heavy lifting ebery night closing

Kiwibank is a great place to enter into the financial sector. A typical day work as a CSR will be fast paced and requires excellent time management skills. You may struggle to grown within the company as internal opportunities are sadly based on "who you know" Jobs at Kiwibank are secure. Sadly this may be due to the high staff turnover. Kiwibank's salary is performance based but does not compete with competitors.
Pros
Job Security.
Cons
No free time to breath, performance based salary with low rewards for high achievers.
