Culture at FNZ

8.3
8.3 rating for Culture, based on 15 reviews
Please describe your company's culture both in the office and after hours. Let us know about the structure and hierarchy, cooperation and teamwork, and socialising amongst colleagues.
Strong culture of working very hard and often late. Managers are easy to talk to. People are friendly and approachable. Frequent social activities.

Cooperation and teamwork
Graduate, Wellington
Regarding hierarchy, your manager checks in on you and even upper-level management is close by so whilst there is a structure to who reports to who, it rarely feels like you are locked out or limited by your position in the company to discuss issues and problems. Regarding teamwork and socialising, your colleagues become good friends and the people around you will aid you with your work, all you need to do is ask. There are heaps of sports teams to join as well, plus other means to socialise. Company social events organised by your team or the company are always heaps of fun!

The culture within FNZ is very accepting and inclusive. Naturally, there are levels of seniority but I have never felt there is a hierarchy which makes socialise with other very easy in and outside of the office.

Lots of sports teams, clubs for activities outside of work, volunteer days are encouraged, colleagues communicate and work well together

Colleagues are very sociable and approachable. Sometimes we need a bit more inter-team cooperation on certain problems.

The Company appears to be striving to make a lot of improvements in this area. It is very much about teamwork, and quite a flat hierarchy where everyone is responsible for the team's delivery. There is an active social club that encourages people from all walks of life to join so that activities organised are inclusive of everyone's interests. People appear to be very friendly and collaborative in both work and social sense

Very flat hierarchy, lots of social events. Cooperation is expected and necessary but also made easy by the people, and protocols for interaction which are encouraged.

I don't engage too much in after hours activities, apart from lunch time sports which have been really good to socialize and enjoy exercise. The hierarchical structure is but the NZ managers do not think they are superior, rather work collaboratively with the people they manage. Teamwork is very good, people are usually very happy to help, unless they're really under pressure and have some urgent deadlines to meet in which case they might direct you to someone else. Socializing is good. I think it just depends on the degree to which you want to socialize. You'll always see people having a good yarn.

I have not been at FNZ long enough to have seen much of the culture but so far it has been great. There is plenty of space out by the kitchen to socialise, with a a big cafeteria-like area. You are able to play foosball during the day which makes for a great way to talk to new people.

Very inclusive, people are always willing to help and answer questions and there is an open-floor setup so anyone can speak up or offer ideas
Intern, Wellington
There is a lot of room for improvement. People can get stuck in cliques and that really drives the appeal down
Intern, Wellington
I don't think we have a hierarchy and everyone has been quite friendly and nice. The teamwork and cooperation at work is great and we get along well.

Hierarchy is very flat and culture is amazing. There are a great group of people working at FNZ that make life great. We have many social events through sports teams, dinner and breakfast groups and also weekly cocktail nights.
