How would you describe your firm’s culture both in the office and after hours?
"I would say that a very clear and transparent organisational structure exists, with responsibilities allocated where appropriate. Collaboration is very inclusive among different grades and roles, and staff are also very welcoming from a social aspect."Civil Service Graduate Development Programme,
"It's extremely collegial so you make friends instantly. Everyone wants to help everyone; there's a great tradition of that here. It's like nothing I've ever experienced; it's not in any workplace you can feel comfortable enough to pick up the phone and ask any senior manager for advice."Civil Service Graduate Development Programme,
"I have encountered a positive work culture here and there is a core group of employees who pull in the same direction to deliver big projects successfully. I have found the workers here to be largely supportive. Many employees also socialise outside work and generally there is a positive atmosphere in the workplace."Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"There is a culture of cooperation, and although there is a hierarchy, it is defined by the grade structure and is well laid out. Colleagues do tend to socialise and there is a social club in my particular department (and probably other departments) which organises events."Civil Service Graduate Development Programme,
"In my opinion, the organisation is very collegiate, hugely collaborative and very helpful. The overarching feeling is that we are on the same team, pulling in the same direction."Civil Service Graduate Development Programme,
"The happy and productive workforce at the organisation leads to there being a great sense of working as part of a team in a very friendly atmosphere."Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"I currently work very closely with my line manager, which is very educational and enjoyable. I personally have not witnessed any view of hierarchy relating to grades in this council, everyone works together. The level of teamwork and cooperation is very high, help is always available. I have never socialised with my colleagues outside of work, however, we do go for lunch to the canteen each day."Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"I was welcomed since my first day, as a young person entering into the Civil Service, I can state first hand at the willingness of experience staff to pass on their knowledge."Civil Service Graduate Development Programme,
"There is a very good working culture within the organisation. The structure is very well outlined within each directorate so each person knows which grade they are at."Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"I am in a team of seven people and we have a great work dynamic, from team meetings to social activities. I have been made feel very welcome from the outset."Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"People have been very welcoming and it is a hierarchical structure, but as I am in the IT Department we have contact with all departments. There is a very good atmosphere in our department with a culture of helping each other and sharing information and skills, and this is encouraged by management within the department. After-hours some of us meet up for sports - badminton, basketball and soccer, as well as for social occasions."Local Government Graduate Development Programme,
"The culture is one of dedication to public service and ensuring value for money for taxpayers. The structure of the department is well established with a variety of levels. Many tasks involve more than one person, and cross-section/cross-departmental tasks are the norm. The social scene is good with various opportunities for social events."IGEES, Graduate Economist Development Programme,
