    I worked at Swindon Borough Council full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The location, sorry can't think of anything else but most of the people I worked with were nice and friendly.

    Cons

    If you want to see a stereotypical council look no further than SBC. Working conditions are archaic, a lack of investment in this and staff in general, cultural issues and inconsistencies in the communication of the vision made my time at the council frustrating and unfulfilling. Couldn't wait to leave. They could learn a thing or two from their neighbours.

    Advice to Management

    Change your top team, have a clear vision, invest in your staff and listen to their ideas.
