Once a leader in the field now tired
Family Services (Former Employee) –  Main Office3 April 2016
A lot of people really committed and interested in what they do but some been there too long or going through the motions. Senior people can be supportive but too much negative gossip in admin support that nothing gets done about.

Many staff talk about being the best but I didn't see much evidence of outstanding work, same good work happening in a lot of other places. Needs some new life and to get out and see what goes on in best practice.
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
Job security poor, more and more people on limited contracts
