Pros

It has been steady employment with a secure wage and benefits. It is possible to get ahead it you keep your head down and moth closed.

Cons

Very little praise for good work, no allowance for individual creativity, no bonus or overtime, poor demotivated middle management and distant disengaged senior management.

Advice to Management

Take the time to get to know staff, be aware of the stresses of the job and make allowances. Remember you need to be fair to employees not just council tax payers.

    I have been working at The Highland Council full-time

    Pros

    Positive outcomes reached with partnership organisations are very rewarding, friendly colleagues, good working conditions, flexi-time, good salary and government pension scheme.

    Cons

    As it's local government, getting things approved and/or actioned takes a long time. Unrealistic targets are set by senior management. Bad communication between management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the constraints we are under as a local authority when delegating tasks.
