Was good for the first ten years, then management changed into over egoed unprofessional sub human beings. Treatment of people who had more service than management were treated second rate and was more like a concentration camp than a place of work
Pros
Good pension, sick pay when get 5 plus years service in
Cons
So called management, no respect for people with long service

The staff had been really welcoming and helpful towards me. It was challenging as it was metropolitan council, therefore had to deal with complex data.

Wonderfully, supportive colleagues. Management hands often tied by too much red tape but in general they do what they can to make working life as good as possible

Made some lovely friends and learnt so much. The induction was really good identifying areas to develop. A lot of support provided when needed and supervisions with management was helpful.

The hours are good as i have enough time to get home and complete my home obligations. A lot of manual effort/physical exertion, which can be tough. The management is very good and supportive and the pay is also decent.

Good team of people in a happy primary school. However: top management not understanding of issue of constant shortage of staff team members and implications of this - stress within team. could not provide me with a reference which caused delay in moving on to another employer - therefore not professional and not helpful
Pros
Good team of people
Cons
did not provide a reference when asked!

Mutually unfortunate, my mental illness coincided with a high pressure period during my time there. Bosses were as understanding as they could be but they had no choice but to replace me.

A really good organisation to work for, always have your best interests in heart. Cutbacks have made jobs shrink however, looking for a job in 2019 might prove a difficult task.

not a good place to work, working as a trainee carer its posh name enablement coordinator full time hours and on the new contract you can be working between the hours from 7 in the morning till 10 a clock at night and you could finish even later than 10 at night sometimes. managers don't care and when you have just finished work night shift they expected you to wake at 5;30 next morning to do it all over again. They make you do the nvq level 2 in care in your own time. you don't have the time cause your working full time and they keep moving you from area to area and never let you settle in. A very bichy environment every one just talks about evey one behind their back. Back breaking work and not organized women who have been their years bully new comers work is to far away from home and can be very difficult work to do very underpaid for the personal care you have to do
Pros
none
Cons
everything
