Worked here on a temporary contract recently in an administrative capacity and found the glacial pace of work frustrating compared to commercial companies.
The department I worked in suffered from being headed by someone who had failed upwards to a position of power, with them having no training in leading or managing a team. I was expected to somehow guess what was required of me and I largely worked alone and unsupervised towards what I could only assume the goal was. They seemed happy with the results, at any rate.
The other people in the office were friendly and welcoming which made it more bearable, but the whole place suffers from a lack of energy. Hopefully the new principle gives them all a kick up the backside.
Good working hours, free parking
Poor leadership, rubbish money for temps compared to full time staff
