Toxic culture

Loved my job. Some good managers others allowed to micro manage, control and bully. Had a lovely team . There is a culture of no trust and favoritism

Large comapny

Working in school was rewarding because of the children. Leadership was good but the pay was not enough for the effort that is put in by staff. Lots of opportunity in the county council in general but not within individual schools.

Very active

I learned a lot I had on the job training learnt new skills, it was a primary school kitchen, very busy , had great training , the job was very rewarding, the staff was friendly , the hardest part of the job I think was trying to convince parents about healthy eating in the area the school was in.

Pros

Making sure everyone was happy. And I did my job well.

Cons

Making sure everything was done correctly.

Good people to work with.

Overall WCC generally provide a good service and make it easy to work with them. In Social Care staff turnover has been an issue but is definitely improving.

Bullying is rife throut wcc. Want fastest cheapest options which creates mistakes and poor quality.

Worked here 23 years and it got worse as time went on. No work life balance and stressful in most if not all services. Council no longer offers job security.

Good Employment- but...

It is a shame that the Team was made redundant and we all lost our jobs, due to going out to the Private Sector. The team spirit was great and one of cooperation, but sadly this was not valued “at the top”.

Extremely interesting and good colleagues

Each day varied, as I worked across the county and sometimes at weekends. Lovely to see couples getting married. Really enjoyed face to face contact with customers.

Good location / cuts cuts cuts

All the benefits of the organisation and the location are an will continue to be affected by ongoing public spending cuts, so job security should not be expected.

My job is made by the team I work with.

Great place to work, lovely team, good hours, fairly flexible. Only downside is the work is very easy and not very challenging, not a clear progression path.
