What is the company culture like at Wiltshire Council?

Pros

Difficult to think of any outside the obvious

Cons

The outward portrayal of a unified organisation is far from the internal truth. Yes COVID has introduced many challenges, however if you are expecting to join a team that wants you to contribute and challenge in a positive way to better the residents of Wiltshire, avoid Wiltshire Council. The culture here is one of "do as I say or else!" and although the new CEO says "we welcome challenge", (there is a thin vaneer of engagement, enough to satisfy senior managers and coucil representative) however the reality is, if you do, there is a high likelihood your life will be made uncomfortable, those that do question are no doubt seen to be the 'difficult ones'. The 'Fear Factor' is relished within their HR department and no doubt discussed and promoted behind the closed doors of senior management meetings. Be warned, all is not what it might seem.

Advice to Management

Engage with knowledge workers and don't just listen to the views of one or two close colleagues... they may well be looking after their own interests rather than telling the whole truth.
