Councils are generally big unwieldy getting tied up in meetings and failing to achieve objectives.
Strategic Plans lead to more strategic plans without implementation of Strategic Plans... this leads to a low moral.

ELT and Councillors do not have the experience or understanding to achieve objectives due to their personal agenda/perspective.


Sad that they do not recognize that their staff are also tax payers.

Communications adviser (Current Employee) - Hamilton, Waikato
Bureaucracy at its absolute worst. No induction. Conveluted processes. Us and them mentality across silos. Lack of accountability and passing the buck and blaming. Inconsistencies and favourtism from management within the team. Work overload. Lack of autonomy.

Very political business environment, it is hard for them to plan and execute projects. My project was delayed 2 years while community consultation was extended.
