Fife Council Reviews
Pros – Full time and permanent employment - flexible working is good as is homeworking (when the boss allows it). Good premises
Cons – Too many people have been given shorter working weeks impacting time off for others. Hard to get time off on a Friday. Home working encouraged but when asked for it is frowned upon. Promotion opportunities only available if you apply for new post - no natural progression. Pay stays the same once you reach the ceiling despite knowledge and experience. Sick system is unfair on those who don't play the system and means you come into work when ill. You are also penalised when going into hospital for an operation as you are not deemed sick at 9am. Have to take leave for this which is demoralising.
Advice to Senior Management – Give opportunities to those with long service. Recognition for 25 years service is ridiculous and hardly worth while. To become a manager you need to have experience supervising staff, but there are no opportunities to do this within current positions making it almost impossible to move up the ladder. Work-life balance varies between departments and depending on team leader. No recognition for good work but quick to point out any errors.
