I worked at Swindon Borough Council full-time (More than a year)
Met some nice people, work was OK, location Ok. Not much else to say really as there weren't many positives.
Not enough to do, no sense of urgency, some people have been there too long and are reluctant to change and recognise that there are customers that need to be served - no purpose or drive. Had hoped my expectations about working in local government would be wrong but they weren't.
Advice to Management
Change. Invest. Set clear expectations and hold people to account. Remove the blockages.
