Managers inexperienced

Coming from an experienced events and production background I found the interview process and onboarding very underwhelming. The manager of the partnerships department was completely inept and thus a culture of overcompensation, confusion and lack of clarity on policy ensued. What they need is a clearing out of the dead wood and the appointment of talented leadership in Partnerships.

Pros

19 day fortnight. Flexible working hours

Cons

Inexperienced department mangers. Inept leadership

Nice place to work

Great culture, caring and supportive management. Not always up to speed with best practice but very keen to do better and evolve. Collaborative and respectful.

Strong delivery of services, productive, collaborative, honesty, continuous improvement

Never a dull moment at the City of Sydney. Strong set of working values, collaborative mindset, delivering innovation, change management, sustained work-life environment. Challenges that bring out the best outcomes and improvements across the CBD. Welcoming culture. Plenty of space to laugh and build relationships. Opportunities to further individual knowledge and build leadership skills.

Productive and Fun

I really loved working with my colleagues. And I really enjoyed meeting New People and Helping Tourists and Visitor's in Sydney. I also loved working in different locations. Townhall, Kings Cross, Circular Quay and Chinatown.

vivid and alive work environment

Hardest part is when chasing the debtors where you know exactly they are lying to your face but you still need to politely and professionally deal with it.

City of Sydney

Because so many old school people still work there's a problem moving up , plus there's a ranking you have to go through which is algood , but with some many still there in the 60s you have a long way until you want to be, in council plus a some of them are on light duties.

Lovely place to work

It is super inclusive. The workload was manageable. As an intern I learned a great deal - that experience has taken me a far way. I would definitely return.

Productive work place

Working with the City of Sydney provided me with the opportunity to experience Administrative duties and supervisory skills being able to delegate workers on the job. I am a confident conversationalist in person and on the phone which includes giving basic information or detailed information.

Pros

Start early and finish before 2:30PM

Cons

None

Good people to work with

It is an organisation where you get to learn while making friends, being casual and professional at the same time. You also get a chance to have team outings which is great.

Decent role

Slow paced which will be frustrating for those from Private sector. Great work life balance due to flexibility and 19 day month. Majority of employees are genuine and want to provide a great service to the community.

Loved my Time with City of Sydney and all areas of work experiences I have had with the many people involved.

A fabulous experience that I enjoyed every day at work. There was a variety of work offered by recognition in efforts with all involved as a Community setting. The diversity of Cultural understanding and the amazing people who make a real difference in experiences that show the world how diverse and multicultural collaboration can be displayed in celebrated events. All is Welcomed! Tips....Keep up the wonderful work ♡
