Very relaxed working environment, colleagues are quite social but still get their work done. Due to a dramatic and wide ranging transformation programme - staff are empowered to find creative ways to collaborate in new ways that were considered 'out there' but are now the norm.

City Hall is well located for commuters as the nearest station is London Bridge. Flexible working is encouraged if it works for your department. Colleagues were very friendly.

Varied and interesting - lots to do but need to be funded properly if it is to deliver what the strategy is. Sometime a closed shop. That said, very nice colleagues good environment to work in

The atmosphere and environment was calm and relaxed but formal at the same time. The work was amazing and I really enjoyed myself. I learned a lot about the Committee Assembly and also learned to produce and deliver the captioning for the Mayors Question Time. I also did some info graphics for the LEAP team and designed a poster for them. The design work was just really off my own back that i offered to do for them just because i loved working with them.
Pros
Fantastic subsidised canteen and great location
Cons
none

You are greeted by friendly security and front line staff as you enter the building. They have a café on the lower ground floor that provides hot and cold food and a separate coffee bar.
You might get to meet/see other dignitaries/celebrities or even get to see the Mayor.
Pros
Wonderful scenery

It's a very exciting place to work, with lots of opportunities to learn about what's going on in London, meet new groups and organisations and learn about new policy initiatives happening in London.

Micro managed by people who clearly have no idea of what happens in the real world.
A complete and utter lack of respect for subcontractors and an inability to make logical decision when required.
Pros
None
Cons
All of the above and more.

GLA is one of the best places to gain quality experience if anyone had the opportunity to work in. I learnt so much from there and until this date I still apply the experience learnt to wherever I go. GLA staff are extremely lovely and the food at the canteen is amazing. GLA constantly run programmes and events so it always busy. The most enjoyable part of working for GLA is answering and dealing with members of the public. Always found it very rewarding to satisfy the needs of callers. I learnt how to deal with people from diverse backgrounds. I always found it exciting to provide information about the GLA and send out packs to people who called to request them.
Pros
Free pass to all GLA events
Cons
None
