Mobile Operations Manager in Orpington
on 12 May 2022
Job for a young new starter
Hours are horrendous they got a policy of 12 hour shifts now . If you are new and don’t know the rules and procedures you be ok , but if you were a dinosaur like me and know the rules and not a yes man to break them as they try to do, retired for a year now after 40 years within the industry and can say best retiring best thing I have done , last 10 years the change in railway is worst it’s ever been. The changes have not been for the better and the rules and procedures are such that it’s very hard to complete your task or job.

A great organisation with a caring attitude
Running such a complex railway is a serious and responsible task. Thankfully Network Rail is a highly professional outfit and a pleasure to work in with some very committed and knowledgeable people.Things can move slowly and so staying at the cutting edge of technology is challenging as the rail network is so vast. There’s never a dull moment though and there will always plenty to do due to the shear scale of the railway.
Track Worker in London

If your face fits and you don't mind sucking up to management and stroking their egos then it's the career for you.
Don't bother you'll have no life , and be surrounded by two faced people including management . Extremely annoying when you have to put up with being side stepped for promotion and progression, Even after completing and passing numerous competencies for safety critical roles! Extremely frustrating.

Productive and fun workplace
Lovely place to work. I enjoyed my time at Networkrail. Manager was very pleasant to work with. Work culture and family life was balanced. Annual leave package and performance related bonus was paid.

Toxic management culture
Definitely a ‘a face fits’ organisation. Mine didn’t. Nepotism rife. Great salary, opportunity to earn silly money.Stupid terms and conditions, written in 1980 not fit for purpose in 2022! Restrictive and non inclusive too. Heavily unionised, heavily bureaucratic. Pointless OH and meaningless people practices!
