Pros

Staff are friendly and supportive. Frontline people want to do a good job for the community they serve and work really hard for the benefit of all the people who use services. It's satisfying to work for an organisation which is there to help people and improve the community, environment etc..

Cons

Going through a very traumatic period of job cuts, reductions in terms and conditions and increased work pressure. Pay freeze for all staff has now gone on for almost three years. Lack of job security. Senior management focus is about squeezing every last drop of effort out of staff so that they can keep providing services on less money. So at the moment there is intense pressure and a reduction in job satisfaction. Hopefully that will change.

Advice to Management

Be more supportive to staff in difficult times. Give more of a sense that staff are valued and that there is an end in sight to the budget cuts. Be careful not overload staff in critical service areas dealing with vulnerable people.

    Pros

    very good work life balance particularly if you have kids, good transport links in and out of london and close to heathrow

    Cons

    not a great deal of career growth and it seems to work only for people who can bully their way upward without necessarily the requisite qualifications

    Advice to Management

    good place to work but not necessarily great management, lots of communication gaps within the Council, could do better on that area with a much more dynamic and fair leaders
