Assistant Highways Officer (Former Employee) –  Thurlby10 September 2017
They talk but don't deliver. Main concern is to provide statistics saying how good they they think they are whilst not providing money to achieve the bare minimum service.

Solid council work
Digital Communications Officer (Former Employee) –  Lincoln10 July 2017
It's a solid enough place to work although local government cuts mean there is some issue now with future job security. Management procedures can be frustrating as a lower level staff member but you're not typically pushed to tough timelines. It's a comfortable working environment and, if you have nice colleagues, a relaxing place to work.
Pros
Flexible lunch period
Cons
Some old management processes are frustrating, individuals can be stuck in their ways but have authority to retain their decision.

Class Teacher (Current Employee) –  Skegness, Lincolnshire13 May 2017
Teaching is not a career to go into if you're looking for an easy 9 -5 commitment with no take home baggage. It's the sort of job that will consume as much of your energy and time as it can, you'll find yourself laminating sentence openers at two in the morning, or waking up at four when you realize you forgot to buy the extra flour for the salt dough animals your making that day. Holidays will involve changing displays and updating your class webpage, and you'll dread your morning wrangle with the photocopier.

Having said that, there are rewards for this effort - and it's the children. There's something incredibly special about opening a child's mind to the world around them and helping them explore it.

If that's enough for you, then go for it.
Pros
Rewarding relationships with fantastic little people
Cons
long hours and dipping into own pocket for resources
