    I worked at Crossrail full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Its a great way to help the city and to work on a project of this size

    Cons

    Working with the IT people is torture, most are complete idiots from the director down. bad attitudes and riddled with self importance they cant even keep exchange up and running.

    They waste money and the CFO has not a clue what he is doing....again bad IT choices made by people without a clue while ignoring those who do know and have a clue.

    It pays to be in the click and completely self absorbed to get on in the IT team(s)...

    Advice to Management

    Hire a good CIO not the temp idiot you have there, dump your IT management team they are all crap and hiding in a Gov job because they cant hack it elsewhere.

    Interview

    Like stepping back into the 90's. Lightweight senior manager's background very industry narrow and they wouldn't recognise transferrable value gained from other industries if it bit them. Lightweight questions and style. Kept waiting on uncomfortable seating and interview started late. Office environment was ridiculously crammed and looked really dated. No guest wifi? Really? Unprofessional.
