    Pros

    Good people, community / sustainability agenda, supportive of employees, good compensation and flexible work practices. The Company offers opportunities for career growth.

    Cons

    Tough time for insurance, poor financial results in 2008. Company is current in a significant period of change and is shifting to a decentralised model. Once this is completed, I expect we will move to a very positive outlook. QBE has been stalking the Group, so there is a possibility of a takeover in the next 12 to 18 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on getting the key things right and restoring the Group to solid profitability.

    Pros

    - good chance to grow into leadership positions if you like politics
    - you have a lot of spare time that you can use for personal development

    Cons

    - legacy code written by less qualified programmers
    - insurance business in NZ grows by acquisition, there are 100s of insurance related software products that require support and integration
    - everything moves very slow, you may get used to that and it will numb your brain
    - SCRUM is used as an excuse to keep too many developers busy with something

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
