Pros

Great people delivering something very valuable to UK plc, there are such a wide variety of opportunities in so many different vocations and locations across England, Wales and Scotland and best of all the industry is rapidly growing. It is a forward looking cmpany that has historically been resistant to change and still is to a degree but wants to change that.

Cons

Frustration that sometimes it is a little difficult to get things done because of the size and complexity of the organisation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep good open lines of communication with employees and keep listening. Restructuring and reorganisation are part and parcel of any large organisation but it should be done openly and quickly as it is more humane!

    Pros

    You're working for the "core" of the industry, which means you're on the inside looking out.

    Cons

    Network Rail is based on the HR set-up of Railtrack, which was only supposed to have its own staff and then a workforce of contracted out staff. Now it's all in-house, Network Rail HR just don't have a clue as to how to deal with a full company of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off the backs of your ground-force staff and get on the backs of the out-of-their depth middle management and lost-interest lower maangement. Perhaps 80% of the problems the company has with staff performance is due to 10% of the management being in completety the wrong job.
