Graduate Electrical Engineer in England
Perfect as a starting job.
Network Rail is a perfect place to work as a graduate as it allows for flexibility giving you the opportunity to work on whatever and wherever you want. However, it is not a place I would recommend staying long term due to bad workplace culture and the lack of feeling of progress for those that strive to do better. The work does feel meaningless at times and depending on location and your own background you can be left feeling left out or unwanted.

Happy to be away
Managers who don't know what they doing, so just pass everything to their staff. Managers who shout at staff and don't assess them correctly. And if you dare to complaint the company tries to do nothing and then punishes you. Took the severance, best thing ever .

Project Manager in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire
Excellent supporting framework
I worked as a contractor. There are many issues associated with big organisations which frustrate change and efficiency. Network Rail suffered these to a lesser extent over many others. Most folk I worked with were passionate about the rail industry and its successful future. There are many pockets of exciting innovation with ears willing to listen to improvements. There are many willing to share knowledge and time to help support innovative change which is immensely refreshing. Experts are often willing find time to contribute to improvements. The hardest part for contractors is the administrative processes.
