UniServices - Ruined by aloof, arrogant corporate stooges
Note: Auckland UniServices Limited is a quasi-private entity, essentially the commercialisation and marketing component, of the University of Auckland.
Pros: It's a paycheck. Work with some interesting academics and researchers. Beautiful views of Auckland from the office. Close to bus stops to take buses that can take you almost anywhere around the city. The president and COO are actually positive and upbeat, and have a great vision for where they want to take the organization.
Cons: Aloof, unfriendly coworkers (not all, but generally); antithetical to an otherwise very friendly Kiwi population. An attitude of, "We don't care that you're new at this job, figure it out quickly and we're not helping you." Managers who accuse staff of laziness, even when said staff have demonstrated otherwise. Self-congratulatory office politics and culture. "Cold" staff in the president's office and People & Culture who don't respond to emails, and respond to in-person inquiries otherwise in a terse fashion. The pay isn't enough for Auckland's cost of living. Bureaucratically complex, even my government standards.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting on that bus at the end of the work day and going home.
