Poor senior management who dont listen and a bullying culture
Manager (Former Employee) – Gloucester, Gloucestershire – 16 March 2018
Some good work done but everyone burns out in local authority, people don't ever admit to getting things wrong and the blind enthusiasm required is draining. Cannot take constructive criticism in any form and have bad relationships with other public bodies. You can do it for only so long unless you can ignore the injustices and politics.
Ambassador (Current Employee) – Gloucester, Gloucestershire – 2 January 2018
Very friendly environment to work in. Get involved as a team and really easy to settle in. Was a very productive work place to work in and got bonuses and tips especially around busy periods for example; Christmas.
Family Support Worker (Current Employee) – Gloucestershire – 28 November 2017
Great colleagues who are supportive and motivating. Atmosphere is positive in office most of the time. Lots of opportunities in regards to training. Flexible with toil/lieu. Little pay for ORS. Little room for career progression.
My day was clearly defined with the morning helping teach maths and English.The afternoons either teaching PE or working on the creative curriculum which could of been design and technology, painting, building, papermache or a large art project.I delivered these across all year groups within school.This was the best part of the job. The hardest part of the job was having enough time to make sure it was done to the best standard.

Quiet office but very busy with more work being required from fewer people
Highways Development Technician (Current Employee) – Glolucester – 28 March 2017
GCC is a good place to work but since I joined in 2012 there has been a cutting back of staff numbers without any corresponding reduction in the level of the work load. Of course o one complains as no one wants to be seen tor 'rock the boat' and our elected representatives think everything is cosy from their eerie.
Ex employee (Current Employee) – Shire Hall – 28 January 2017
Culture of putting people down, over work and under value. Awful management. Your face had to fit. Some colleagues are very supportive but managers are not. A real clique. High pressure to meet deadlines.
Custodian (Former Employee) – Gloucester shire hall – 13 January 2017
During my time working there I found it was very unorganised. I didn't know what I was working week to week and I was required to do multiple big tasks all at once. the job was only part time but very strenuous.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Gloucester library – 20 November 2016
Working in the Gloucester Library, ran by the county council, has been a very good experience. However, if you go in as a volunteer, there is no guarantee you will be fully employed there. Regardless, it has been an enjoyable and productive and the staff are amazing people.
