I liked nbn when it started with Mike Quigley as a CEO and enthusiastic, knowledgeable management. Then in 2014, change of government & new political interests dominated the business decisions incl the debacle of HFC. Nepotism was a common practice at nbn: Well paid jobs to friends, ex colleagues, relatives not the most qualified candidates. Mediocre mgt ruled.
There were one set of rules for those who were brought by management and those who got the job thru formal recruitment selection. Too much of Government involvement in business decisions. Too political .
