Has its pros and cons
Joiner (Former Employee) –  Lancastet18 November 2017
Work colleagues are great to work with, pension and holidays are great.

Management are useless always pass the buck, never take responsibility, you do 80% of there work. Pay is shocking for a tradesman takes you 6 yrs + to reach top of pay grade. A driver with no qualifications or skills is on the same pay scale as a qualified joiner, who took 3 yrs training to learn his trade.
Pros
Pension, holidays, work colleagues
Cons
Pay is shocking for a tradesman

Performance Team Support Officer (Former Employee) –  Lancaster15 April 2014
The most important part of local government is working for your community, and it's something which is intrinsic to everything that happens at Lancaster City Council.
Customer Service and professional, effective and efficient services are what the council aims to provide, and this is what the organisation strives for.
Performance management, Project and Programme management and business planning I have learnt are key elements in effective local government.
Strong communication pathways travelling up, down and across the organisation are key to maintaining a cohesive, motivated and productive workforce.
I have enjoyed working within teams and on my own, working as a PA to a senior manager and office manager with a number of teams, and being given the change to develop skills in communication, community engagement, project management and support.
Pros
Flexi-time, good pension
Cons
Uncertain future
