A badly run local authority with weak and confused management. A significant history of employment law breaches in relation to redundancy and cutting pay rates for jobs below the average in other local authorities.
Staff are expected to work themselves to the bone with little in the way of thanks or encouragement.
Increasingly staff are asked to take on additional roles and responsibilities for which they have little training.
Senior management increasingly isolated from staff and there is considerable political interference in the day to day management of the authority beyond policy making and scrutiny.
