Toxic workplace, bullying and awful management
A job that would be good if it weren't for the petty management. Bullying and harassment, lazy coworkers and pathetic management. The DCC is known for all of this but the higher ups don't care, they are content with the cesspool of a work environment they have created and encourage. Wouldn't recommend for sanity only recommend for the living wage if you can cope with the feeling of a day filled with nothing but the feeling of bashing your head against a wall dealing with these people.

toxic, stressful, exhausting
The DCC is a place where some managers are able to yell and swear at staff, and bully people. Some of the managers are never there. When you try and raise a concern you just get told your concern isn't relevant. I am trying to find a new job now because it's so horrible coming to work each day.

If you want to be bullied, DCC is the place to go
If you want to be the bully, DCC is also the place to go as noone will stop you. They do have a whistle blower policy, but who is brave enough to use it.

Soul destroying - dysfunctional and bully culture
The negatives outweigh the positives I'm afraid. The leadership is dysfunctional. Some of the senior managers threaten and intimidate to get their way. Unprofessional leaders. The money is good but career progression isn't really available - flat structures and people don't leave (team and profession dependent). If you want to be surrounded by bullies and lazy colleagues and pick up their slack with no reward or recognition then the dunedin city council is the place to go.

Bullying, toxic culture and dysfunctional leadership
There is so much bullying and a lot of it starts with the managers and senior leaders. There is a lack of transparency and recruitment to positions is on a 'who you know' basis. Depending on who you are, there might not even be a recruitment process!! I have witnessed bullying from very senior people but people are too scared to say anything and if they do they 'disappear'. Lazy people get celebrated and incompetence doesnt seem to matter either.
