A decent place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked in a local authority nursery for ACC. The pay was good, I felt there was opportunities to develop if that’s what you wanted, and generally had job satisfaction.

Pros

Good pay, good hours

Fun work place.

I work in the nursery schools and its been a great experience. Wonderful colleagues with willingness to help you adapt to the job. The team leader has been very helpful. I don't have any regrets working here.

Good place to work

Good job and life balance. Most people were good and management weren’t the worst of people. Some days it was fast paced other Days it was slow. I enjoyed it while it lasted.

Share your experience to help others

None, the team were cold and they are like robots No human touch 😕

They don't care about your employees feelings, culture, I don't recommend. Like any other government job, a lot of people there didn't know what they are doing just.... had luck or something else to get the job. Fully disappointed.

Good place to work with good work opportunities to learn and progress through the ranks and be treated with respect.

A typical day at work is dealing with relevant paperwork, organising and dealing with multiple trades people and materials, learning all aspects of Health and Safety, good working relations and communication with management making sure targets were being maintained , most enjoyable part of the job was seeing and returning properties in good condition back into the system.

Pros

Good opportunities to progress your career, Good pension scheme and Holidays

Cons

dealing with and meeting work targets.

Untrustworthy managers

Staff are fine and work together which creates a good environment. Managers are out for themselves and are only interested in making cuts. Never any money for photocopy paper or pens. The interal internet is like a brainwashing site. It tells you all the positive things for staff but when you are for development opportunities you dont get them. Very 2 faced organisation

Pros

Flexible working

Cons

Constant money saving

Awful

Aberdeen city council was a very unsettled place to work and I felt the management was corrupt and boundaries often blurred. I often get bullied by colleagues and management were awful in supporting me with this

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Too many to say

Was working through Agency

Nice enough place to work people are friendly and helpful there is a lot of different areas you work in some more challenging than others. Only downside can be is the time it sometimes takes waiting to tip.

Enjoyable company to work for

Enjoyable company to work for and spent a long time there and enjoyed the security and working outdoors. Would recommend them to anyone thinking about them.

City Warden

Overall disappointing job as it was mainly just parking whereas the job was sold as doing community projects. Management pressured staff to get tickets which led to some nefarious actions by some wardens

Great team environment

I loved my time there and there was plenty of scope to learn and grow as my role evolved. A very busy environment and never boring. It is challenging at the moment for the council and there has been a need to adapt quickly to a very different culture in a short space of time. The management are the key to all departments managing the transition and they take the responsibility of maintaining moral very seriously.

Communiation and culture poor

Lack of communication. Staff can be reluctant to show new staff the ropes. Definatly if your face fits you get on better. No idea about making staff feeling welcomed. Seems very disorganised and proper inductions not done.
