    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Railcorp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some great people and projects
    Plenty of career opportunities
    Good pay and conditions

    Cons

    Lots of poor performers not managed
    Some areas with poor performance culture
    Due to constant government changes/reform, a lot of people are too defensive - which can even get in the way of productive work.

    Advice to Management

    Give support to project teams
    Hold poor performers to account - don't simply move them to another roster/location to keep everyone happy

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Railcorp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Huge number of projects and great variety. People are great to work with. Most are committed to delivering quality work and will work as long as it take to get it done. High level of committment to improve in all areas of safety, quality and value for money.

    Cons

    Government changes without consultation. Senior management accepts what ever the next goverment hands out without question. Difficult to control the few poor performers. Still pockets of people who underperform. Senior management structure particularly at GM level is out of control and therefore overheads costs are spiralling.

    Advice to Management

    Need to support the people who actually deliver projects directly with clerical, safety, environmental, training and HR
