There's too much favoritism going on in the work place, the worst thing about my experience there was another staff member saw another colleague hit into the back of my Mercedes and when confronted he completely denied and the management didn't care either. They never covered the repair cost and I had to pay from my own pockets which was expensive. There's too much politics in the work place
Typically - review ticketing system for IT requests, look to delegate where necessary otherwise adopt the IT related issue / task. Learnt - Hands on experience within an IT based role. Management - Average. Workplace Culture - Again average. Hardest part of the job - Daily bike ride. Most enjoyable - Employee feedback of a positive genuine nature.
Govia Thameslink Railway offer good benefits and salary packages, however like many large organisations, management varies from good to very poor. There is a bullying culture present at certain levels whereby managers are chastised if they speak up regarding this culture. Progression is possible at GTR, and many staff have progressed at some point of their career. You are given free staff travel across 5 networks and so does your family. Also national travel is discounted by 75%. Salary packages are competitive also.
Free travel across 5 railway companies, discounted national travel, good salary package
Long hours, poor shift patterns, not family friendly

Free travel, free uniform, get paid every 4 weeks, meet lots of new people. Learn about rail operations.
Early starts late finishes, Bullying culture is rife amongst some managers.
with this job you have to be alert at all times because the railway is a dangerous place. A normal day would be waking up early in the morning and getting the first train to the depot. You come across a lot off different people on the railway. the most enjoyable part of the day is seeing the customer walking away and getting on the right train smiling.
