Pros & Cons

  • Social and a genuinely friendly environment.
  • Flexible working arrangements. Lots of career development opportunities.
  • Not working for profit.
  • The people, the culture, and how everyone is very encouraging of Te Ao Māori
  • Friendly environment, culturally influenced
  • There are parts of the organisation that don't 'get' (or want to 'get') what we're doing despite support from senior and executive leadership.
  • Workload can be cyclical, with busy and non-busy periods.
  • Processes are still quite manual - we need to utilise the latest technology more.

Career Prospects
You are able to review your progress with your manager and see how far you have gotten and what opportunities lie ahead for you. I am a new-bee so I do not have much experience in promotion other than being an intern and then becoming a graduate.

Culture
The culture is genuinely friendly. The hierarchy isn't that deep which keeps bureaucracy to a minimum. It's very easy to approach senior members of staff.

Management
Managers are very accessible and very good mentors. My manager particularly always has weekly catch-ups to track my progress and helps me work to improve my skill set. Also, very lovely, meaning she is very approachable and easy to talk too. She is also very encouraging of not just my work but of The Au M?ori and makes biscuits and coffees.

Office Work Environment
Fairly relaxed. Tidy jeans are okay Monday through Thursday, and Fridays are casual. You are expected to dress up a bit (shirt with suit pants and jacket) if you're meeting external customers.

Recruitment
I originally started working at Stats NZ as an intern and I found the interviewing process very quick, effective and to the point. I have had experiences in the past where I'm left waiting for months to hear something back, or the people interviewing me weren't very professional. I had another interview when I applied for my permanent position and again that was handled well and went very quickly and efficiently.

Training
Very good. I do not have a background in statistics and was quite nervous on how I would find the work but as soon as I started, I was able to work through SAS programming workshops and other seminars that have helped me progress both my technical and personal skills.
