Well looked after by management
Training is always available.
Flexibility in the workplace is great.

As a project manager, there is a lot of governance and micro managing meaning paperwork is endless.

Staff are wonderful to work with. Some Directorates are more innovative
Outsourcing the big thing & not necessarily desired result. More costly than anticipated. Despite public perception valued, experienced, knowledgeable coal face staff being shed replaced by costly 'short term' contractors. Colleagues where professional, helpful & hard working. Pay & associated benefits excellent. Offices ideally located. Free parking. Be aware Council (staff) & Crs *very* separate entities. Counter productive politics instead of good business sense sadly.
Pros
Great role, colleagues, pay & lifestyle.
Cons
Lack of certainty, little training, petty politics.

A lifestyle choice for those who wish to live on the Gold Coast
Expect to see significant changes in the way that council operates and delivers its services over the next few years. Whether or not the people of the Gold Coast will perceive these changes as being positive remains to be seen.
