productive and fun workplace with some negatives

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
the actual work itself is great and the majority of the people there are amazing however, some of the management were over bearing and didn't really do much other than get stressed at the staff for no good reason. there was also a lot of talking behind peoples backs and general rudeness.

Great place to work

If there was one word I'd use for the Councils, it would be friendly. Mostly everyone goes out of their way to help other people and those who work here are really invested in serving the people in the area of Adur and Worthing. I've had chances to progress and develop in the council and, if you're someone who gets out, meets people and looks for opportunities, chances are you could too.There is a lot of work and sometimes it feels like we're a little overstretched, but this is because of our ambition as an organisation and the impact we want to have on our area. There's not really a typical day at work for me - although there will be for many of the roles. I have projects I work on and self-direct myself to get them done, working with colleagues. The management give permission to get things done and provide support where needed.

Pros

flexi time, good holidays, home working opportunities, friendly co-workers

Cons

High workload

culture of ignorance

the call centre, or should we call it Customer service team, was managed by an egotistical manager, who was only looking to progress himself. the team were for the most good at their jobs despite having no support from those managing them.

Pros

convenient to get to

Cons

poor management

Under valued work force

the worker are under valued and over cast by the many levels of un needed management, the council struct needs to be over hauled and progressed into the matching the rest of the world as far as the workers appreciation culture.

Pros

flexi working

Cons

over managed

Great insight into Planning

The work introduced me to the challenges of planning policy, such as the need for consultations, and of the potential for SPDs. My GIS work was MapInfo based and formed an evidence based for an upcoming GI strategy

People are great, major restructuring

Re structuring through out the organisation and loosing very skilled members of staff and those left behind are expected to cover not only their job but their ex-colleagues creating a stressful working environment for all concerned.

Pros

Flexitime, car park, salary

Cons

Red tape, politically driven, hot desking

Very good employer

Very good employer and I enjoyed working there. Flexible working hours and Management who recognised hard working employee's. One thing I would only mentioned that I did not liked...racist comment by an employee who worked there for so long that no one would challenge his behaviour which resulted in an unfair outcome.

Pros

Flexibility, training and development

Cons

Sometimes bias outcomes due to connections
