    I have been working at NBN Co full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good people working in the teams

    Cons

    Senior management not experienced in leading and inspiring teams. #bringbackbill

    Advice to Management

    Stephen Rue so dry and boring, lacks charisma and doesn't engage staff. All communications and presentations are robotic and feel forced and fake. Feels like a very very temporary CEO in a holding position waiting for the company to sell. Definitely makes sense to have an ex CFO act in the top position while the company goes through preparation to sell but thats all it is "Acting".
