Lagging behind culturally - but it's progress
It's years behind where it should be and it's a difficult place to drag into the future especially when job security is so high. Getting rid of the dead wood is near impossible and makes for a morale sapping environment.

Fun, friendly environment to work in. Not too stressful either.
Friendly staff, management and good working conditions. Aspects of training available and lots of enhancement within the council and other opportunities. In general a good place to work.
Social Care Worker in Edinburgh

Fast paced and stressful but rewarding
I have worked with the council for 10 years. The past 4 years being in health and social care. You are treated fairly but sometimes you are over run with service users and don’t get enough time to spend with them. However it is very rewarding and the management are fair. Not a great work/life balance and you work long hours and split shifts.
