It was ok

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was ok, really good for experience and developing my skills. But found it very difficult to work from home. And there is an expectation to work from home, to some degree in the long term - which I don't want to do.

Pros

Good for developing skills

Cons

Working from home.....great if you want that but not for me

Bad workplace

Very bad workplace, they treat you like garbage and not like a human. Avoid company at all costs. I wish I did. They dont have any rewards and you will not get promoted

Pros

Nothing

Everything

Zero progression

It's a bit of a lottery really - you may be lucky enough to find yourself in a team that are seemingly immune to the budget restrictions, i.e. they are given the same opportunities that are denied to others because of "budget restrictions". Expect to be in the same role for many many years.. and when a miracle does happen and a higher position opens up, they will probably choose to recruit externally rather than promote from within. Joining the cliques of senior managers also seems to get you far in this organisation as I've seen substantial evidence of managers hiring people based on their relationship, not their abilities. Other than working with supportive staff, there really isn't many redeeming features.

Pros

Supportive staff

Cons

ZERO progression opportunities, no training/development

Fast-Paced Environment

Working for BCP Council at the Prom Cafe was a very busy environment. Especially in summer during the heat waves and the annual air show. There were thousands of customers every day.

Excellent culture and close knit teams

I only left my role as it was a temporary maternity leave cover position. I was made to feel very welcome and was given vast support and training to assist me in my role.

Good Environment, Good Pay

There was no typical day at work, if the day was busy I would spend it on the slipway, if it was slightly bad weather or just a slow day in general the boss always had something for me to do, whether it was general maintenance on the sandbank or checking things around the quay. I learned to be more confident in the way I present myself, and how to deal with customers issues face to face. In a way I had 2 bosses and they treated me with respect and made sure I always had what I needed, they also weren't afraid to give me feedback on my work and where I could improve which I thought was very useful. The hardest part of my job was definitely confronting people, and dealing with some of the problems the public brought my way. The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the work ethic and friendly manner the other staff present, everyone gave me a warm welcome and told me things from their experience that would help me do that much better in my area of work

Really friendly place

Good people run by an excellent and intuitive Head of Comms, and a terrific atmosphere. Surprised me in my first local government role - and especially interesting in a new council (made from three).
