Well-established training programmes and staff development strategies. A pleasant, co-operative work environment where everybody in the team is treated as being of equal value. Your post is fairly secure and staff turnover is about what you would expect. Working hours and leave allocation are both very good.
Pay is not as competitive as it could be and promotion prospects are not as bright as comparable posts in the private sector. Some long-serving staff contribute little these days.
They let you work flexi-time.
“Excellent public sector employer”
Bright open office space, excellent working environment, pleasent surroundings. Fleixble timings, good annual leave. Flat structure almost unheard of at public sector organisations. Good job security.
Pay is pretty low. Vacancies constantly filled by external hires, so limited opportunity for growth inside the company. A lot of employees are simply paper pushers.
