    I worked at Stevenage Borough Council

    Pros

    Flexi time Good pay Great location

    Cons

    Don't listen to staff despite the numerous staff surveys No clear goals (Change constantly) Very Clicky Leaders don't lead they manage Man managed by councilor Due to government cuts you are always on the edge of redundancy

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to staff more. Some of their ideas were good. Stop letting the councilor drive what's best for your staff and council.

    I worked at Stevenage Borough Council for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, Restaurant and cafe, Free parking

    Cons

    Bullying and clicky environment. If you're good at your job it makes you a target for the lazy co-workers and all hell breaks loss. Weak Line Managers promoted above their skill level. Tough and nasty.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being too weak to confront bullies and lazy staff. You're losing good employees.

    I worked at Stevenage Borough Council full-time

    Pros

    Unfortunately all the Pro's were changed, with pensions being effected and less staff to do more work

    Cons

    Very stressful once redundancies started. Although the were written procedures for this, staff felt that they were being kept in the dark

      I worked at Stevenage Borough Council

      Pros

      Good location, and reasonable office accommodation. Lots of nice colleagues, and lots of people who are really trying to do a good job.

      Cons

      Like all local authorities, the council is making budget cuts as a response to the new government. There have been a lot of changes in the senior management which has had a detremental effect on how the council operates. You get the sense of a lot of tension between the officers and the elected members.

      Advice to Management

      More genuine consultation would bring a more positive response from your employees. Endless meetings behind closed doors is not having a good effect on staff morale.
