Great people working in difficult times

It's the local government! People are working to the best of their ability during lean times. Morale is low in some areas but overall the employees are creative, upbeat and keen to do a great job in the face of economic austerity. If you work for the council you have to be motivated by more than monetary reward. The hardest part is the cutbacks, meaning there are fewer resources (human and otherwise) whilst demands of the services are growing. The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the people and team ethos.

Too many chiefs, not enough indians

Always criticised, no positive feedback. Management are full of themselves, look after each other even when they get something wrong, too many policies and procedures.

Pros

Free parking

Cons

Good pension

Busy office but interesting work. Occasional difficult customers but easier to deal with as knowledge of the council's services improves. Hours of work acceptable as well.

Not well supported as a Newly Qualified

Hospital team not very supportive to new starters. Not a good team to work with unless already qualified. The supervision was not productive as it did not reflect on weaknesses and how to develop. No feed back as a net qualified on all observation of up to six months. The supervisor did not have enough experience on how and how to support AYSE candidates.
