Public Trust has been undergoing continuous trasformation for the last 5+ years. Year after year the Board, chaired by the same person, approves loony change programms, which were supposed to turn the business around. The current CEO has surrounded himself with yes-man small group of Execs and created a septic blame culture getting rid off those who disagree. Despite tens of millions of dollars spent on change, neither Board or the Treasury (yes, public money we are talking about) seem to be concerned with the lack of progress - staff engagement at below 50% and the retail sales declining since 2000s.
By far the worst work culture I have experienced. Not only the CEO but every remaining Exec has a terrible market reputation, incompetent as a manager and a bad person.
Under no circumstances consider joining Public Trust (Auckland HO in particular). Working for Public Trust was one of the worst experiences of my life.
Dysfunctional and manipulative leadership
