Most bureaucratic place I have ever worked!

I enjoyed my time at the council but was very frustrated by how slow everything was, how many people it took to make any decision and the huge cost to taxpayers for what was often poor outcomes. I do not recommend working here apart from their flexibility for work life balance.


Flexible work life balance, nice people


Nothing gets done

Fantastic team and management

Though it can depend on which library you are mainly situated in, I have found the team and management to be absolutely superb in the Libraries segment of CCC. There's a real sense of family between coworkers and management is genuinely caring about you as a person, with your work-life balance etc, not just your work output. Best work culture I have worked in.

Good people, councils have too many conflicting demands

Long hours and demanding but satisfying. Very hard to get the resources needed for operations as so many conflicting demands.
