There is more work to do than time to do it in, but the workload is somewhat up to the individual. Learning how to push back and do less was the hardest part of the job.
The second hardest is normal for the Public Service: the political landscape shifts regularly and quickly under your feet. If you don't like surfing through your project management duties it creates tension.

The people were fantastic.

Job Culture
No such thing as a typical day at work. Work varies from medium to highly intensive in terms of time and deadline management. Regionally based with management based in Head office in Wellington. Most enjoyable aspect is the relationship management and implementing strategies that create mutual benefit for both the organisation and the parties concerned. Hardest part of the job is the out of town travel and isolation being regionally based which at times could be a risk to not only yourself, your team and the organisation. High level of self determination in terms of decision making. Need to be emotionally intelligent, hold exceptional relationship management skills, people reading and be able to prioritise. Most enjoyable part of the job - learning aspect as not confined like others to one business unit within the organisation so interactions with all primary sectors.
Pros
Greast team, great learning and development opportunities
Cons
long intensive hours depending on priorities. Not always good work life balance
