      I have been working at Leicester City Council full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      LCC is an equal opportunities employer with an agile working policy. Depending on the service you provide there is a flexible working arrangement which includes working from home and flexi hours. For those with the right attitude and aspirations of moving up in the organisation there are many development opportunities.

      Cons

      Due to decreasing workforce there is an expectation that employees will take on extra duties, this can sometimes overwhelm individuals.

      I have been working at Leicester City Council full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Lots of great people work at LCC and there is always a lot to learn. A lot of the financial pressures on LCC actually work as an encouragement to develop my role and keep me motivated to improve. There is a lot of working flexibility and management in my area are very open and progressive to new ideas.

      Cons

      There are a lot of poorly managed teams with poorly motivated staff and an inherent feeling of competition for budget and points scoring between divisions that results in teams working for themselves rather than as a collective.

      Advice to Management

      Simple. Unity and a collective goal for the whole authority.

      I worked at Leicester City Council full-time

      Pros

      A very good salary. Some friendly staff.

      Cons

      LCC has no direction as to what they are doing or where they are going. Management is appalling, there is a lack of pastoral care, rude councillors and mayor, no team morale, lots of negativity, individuals that make for a much tougher/negative working environment for no reason, lots of backstabbing between different teams/people, some rude HR staff who have no idea what they are doing, lack of opportunities and no flexibility...
