    Pros

    pay cheque and flexi -time, managers are not rude to you, difficult to get rid of you if you're in the PCS union (cost £8.41 per month). The pay is not bad by Wolverhampton standards.

    Cons

    boring, repetitative work on ancient pre-Windows software. The simplist tasks are intricate and time consuming, requireing the use of three databases . A stagnate aging workforce,some there since the 60s. A woman got a medal for being in the same job, in the same place, for...25 years!! They are incredibly petty to a molecular degree and complain about things no one in the private sector would have time for. The main topic of conversation is the eating habits of their children. A colleagues's child and husband both like wild rice with fishfingers and tomarto ketchup.

    It's depressing working for a welfare system that has failed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please stop saying:"Everything will be all right when Universal Credit comes in"...in 2013. More vertical and horizontal promotion opportunities. What is the purpose of our welfare system?

    Pros

    excellent benefits and can get away with doing very little for alot of salary

    Cons

    If you are a hard worker wanting rewards and promotion it is a poor employer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to look at outside private sector management and get tough with staff who do not pull their weight (50%)
