    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Warwickshire County Council full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Varied workload- there are no other pros to add to this. The general social care service offer training, parking, flexible shifts. But this department does not make these benefits available to staff.

    Cons

    Car parks not managed adequately Unhelpful staff, a very closed circle of social workers and managers. They are not open to new ideas of working and the behaviour of some of the staff is quite oppressive. There is no standard to work towards so new members and agency staff are always wrong.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Warwickshire County Council full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people create a working environment that is extremely supportive. You can carve a career that incorporates a huge variety of different areas (Fire and Rescue, Highways, Legal, Social Care etc) whilst working for the same employer (so building up holiday, pension). Plus there is encouragement of internal staff to move into areas they're passionate about but don't have the experience/technical skills, as there is funding for training to gain the skills. In my experience, work-life balance has been wonderful, development opportunities have been great and the people I work with contribute to this being the best place I've worked.

    Cons

    Layered and unclear decision making processes cause delay's
