Waited for 2.5 years from interview to start. Even after being offered the job and a proposed start date for training.The culture is stressful and the management tends to make work difficult at times. They care little for your travel times and location of work. I'd not work there again unless as a train driver. The Customer service assistant role is tedious and stressful at times.Perks are good,. Training is good. Control of shifts and life balance is almost impossible. Salary is good. But you sacrifice alot for money.
My time at TfL was professional, productive and fun. All members I worked with were qualified and keen to deliver a good product. The levels of supervision over the subcontractors could have been better managed, but overall programme works rarely fell behind, and the final product was professionally delivered. Compliance and quality were never compromised to meet programme deadlines.
a sense of togetherness once known
long hours and too many inexperienced graduates in management
Sadly I lost my job due to the coronavirus but working for Transport for London was the best job I’ve had. It felt more like a career then just a job. Fantastic salary, good working life balance and very supportive management.
Hours and salary
Nice company, lack of diversity in top management. Do not use your own initiative or bring new ideas to the company. Beauracratic, especially in the professional services.
Old school management, lack of diversity in top management, keep your head down and you will be fine, dont think for yourself or they will plot to oust you.
While I was only on a temporary contract, it was a good place to work. I would like to have continued, but this was not possible within the department.
Good facilities at Southwark; Free Travel; Good colleagues with bonus of sports clubs etc
Politics in managment; budget responsibility to the mayor rather than passengers.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Plenty to do much not sure of the organisation's objectives. Mainly due to the financial constraints imposed by the coronavirus I guess. Much seems to revolve around the failings of larger projects
pleasant working conditions
inadequate middle management
I love working for TfL. It is a very interesting and Challenging environment. I learn everyday and there is always an opportunity for everybody to learn new skills. We have Skill share lunch on weekly basis, and always look forward to these activity. We also work like family, both at project team level or Organisation as a Whole. Management is caring and listen to every one.
Jobs for the boys. Management paid lip service to following/understanding project management methodology (their own). Wasting public money hand over fist due to this. I was made to feel very isolated when questioning this and felt I had to leave.
At a senior level there are a lot of challenges faced at Transport for London (TfL), but if you are the sort of person that thrives in that environment then you will not be bored. There are a huge number of very talented people in TfL too; there's a lot to learn from the staff and the customers. There are few restful days in SHE, it is full-on all of the time. Personal accountability is important, because mistakes could become public.
Employer with deep and genuine commitment to staff welfare and wellness. Collaborative and interesting work environment with clearly defined goals, principles, standards and missions. Broad range of opportunities for advancement and development. Highly collaborative approach to management with genuine staff involvement and participation. Highly recommend it as a place to work.
Excellent place to work for despite ongoing structural changes it is a decent company to work for - the people and overall culture is exceptional. . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . .. . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
