I worked at Manchester City Council full-time for more than a year

Pros

Its a large organisation that is constantly evolving and at the heart of the growth and recognition of Manchester as an increasingly international destination. The work can be very varied and challenging depending on which department you work for. There is so much to tackle and deliver due to local needs and national legislation that there is always a something to get stuck into.

Cons

Lack of fluency and co operation at times between departments, makes meeting customer expectations at times difficult, sometimes excellence is not achieved due to a lack of risk taking / belief / culture / cohesion in delivering a vision.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try and remove some of the governance layers and controls to speed up decision making. Empower and listen to staff more, embrace change worry less about business as usual focus on what customers will need / want now.

    Pros

    relaxed management and down to earth co-workers

    Cons

    numerous cancellations when attending clients location for verbal interpretation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create a better system of internal control, this would act as cost-cutting measure and will increase effectiveness and efficiency of the business eg update the MS Access to more recent version
