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.

Deputy Works Supervisor - Lower Waikato - RCS (Former Employee) - Hamilton, Waikato
never again would i return to the WRC, i wasted 10 years of my life.
The mentality of some of the groups there is a mix of 'shortland street' and play center. Double standards and nepotism run wild, if only the rate payers could see what goes on behind closed doors they would be shut down.......

There are some factions there that do fantastic work but a majority are cruising on overpaid salaries.
Pros
the people you work with out side of office ie; farmers/rate payers
Cons
stress, bullys and butt lickers
