Supportive and professional working environment, within a dynamic and forward-thinking organisation.
There was a reasonably lengthy process to secure this role, and you need to be prepared to travel in the beginning as the position is one over multiple locales; however, the daily tasks are varied and I love being on my feet a large part of the time. It is a pleasure handling the beautiful items in the physical collection, presenting regular sessions and events, and assisting the public with their work, searches and inquiries.

Great place to work if you have family.
Would go in log in a few minutes before our start time
Check to see if we have any training for the day

Everyday is different, dealing with different issues and customer's

Friendly environment so it wasn't hard to adapt.

Handling high call volumes

Service knowledge was pretty good and if we weren't sure we had a pod leader who would direct me in the right section.

I enjoyed the different people we were dealing with. Solving issues and giving the customer's a satisfactory experience at the end of every call.

Get their moneys worth from salaried staff
Very busy responding to breakdown and planned maintenance.
Councillors requests for priority changes often dictated changing plans on the fly.

Trades staff not valued by some elected members and their staff.

Rats on a sinking ship
Weird dichotomy between ex police and free masons. Corruption from head to two in this organisation, blokes who were tasked with responding in severe weather events were so unionised they would make sure they were getting paid 15% loading before exiting their truck to help rate payers in a weather event. Absolute cowards.
Pros
If you are management you get bonuses for the work your underlings do
Cons
If you are an underling expect, to wear the blame for underperforming over paid middle, management who can hardly manage themselves

Very clicky
They care about a job over people and offer work/life balance but never follow through. Don't listen if you're struggling and No emotional support. Worked there 16 years and my job changed to something that made me very stressed then instead of helping me find a job suitable.. which they do with others, i had to have time off stressed and developed mental health issues as a result of my work environment

Bullying Culture
Worse bullying culture encountered in 30 years experience, management Byzantine tyrants, tall poppy syndrome is rife, replete with unqualified entitled staff manoeuvring for your job, no ability to manage contracted staff who literally sleep on the job. Run..run now. Do not apply to work here. They will harm you beyond words

Friendly and multicultural environment to work
Brisbane city council is a friendly and multicultural environment for graduates who are looking for getting working experience. They allow me to rotate in different positions, therefore, I could learn more about the main duties in each section of the financial department.

Flexible and diverse workplace.
It is difficult to match the flexible hours and work-life balance. BCC has very complex systems and databases but provide training. There s on-going on-line professional development.

Ambiento lavorativo molto stimolante e genuino sull'accento di sviluppo personale e professionale
La workplace cultura e basata sul livello molto alto che comprende la coscienza del rispetto per l'individualita con le sue diferenze e sopratutto sul equilibrio tra il lavoro e la vita personale del impiegato. Con le regole che parlano del rispetto per tutti nonostante la razza e nazionalita si e creato un mondo lavorativo dove si trova accolto e supportato nel livello personale anziche professionale .

I worked for Brisbane City Council for a project and I loved being part of it. Great colleagues who respect you for what you are and help you if you are a newbie. No pressure and value work life balance.
