I thoroughly enjoyed working for Auckland Council - the job itself was challenging (but what job isn't and who would not want to be challenged) because it was dealing with the greater Auckland. Yes! there were times when you wanted to cry, shout or curse because of the mean things people say to you over the phone but at the end of each call, my colleagues - more... and especially my manager/team leader at the time was always there, supporting and encouraging the team to persevere.

ProsProfessional and family life balance, pay package and benefits, Advancements into other areas of Auckland Council
ConsRestructures always occurring, no Christmas party, just lunch
