working for SMBC has many benefits such as: a healthy amount of annual leave, flexi, sick leave etc. it is also a great place to work for if you want to progress and there is always room to aim higher. However the sickness policy is way too strict and needs to be looked at.
Pros
flexibile
Cons
sickness policy

Posting of invoices, distribution of post, answering the telephone, emailing, browsing the internet. I learned how to approach my work and clients with confidence, enthusiasm, , how to priotise the importance of each piece of work The most enjoyable time is when we all had a break and got together for group sessions and actually meeting the public The staff overall were pleasant, and helpful, but there could be an element of bullying on occasions. But all in all I really enjoyed my job.
Pros
Good salary, holidays, staff helpfulness, flexibility and respect
Cons
Lots of pressure, some bullying, not easy for advancement

I very much enjoyed working for sandwell council's as it was close to home and very much enjoyed working with the people there. I had very good understanding of the area having worked as an inspector and this understanding helped me in my office role in later years. The hardest part of the job is not been able to do what you can due to cut backs and not been able to help volunrable persons. Helping tax payers with payment methods and getting tax payers to pay what they owe as well as locating non payers.,
Pros
Good salary
Cons
Working too close to home & being aproached outside work
