    I have been working at GB Railfreight full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Generous pay and staff benefits offered , in many cases the benefits are offered to family members too. GB is a very family orientated company with some great staff who on the whole look out and support one another. The company has a flat management structure with a positive and inclusive culture quite unlike anywhere I have worked before.

    Cons

    You work hard and the work can be intense at times but you generally have fun doing it and get a great sense of achievement.

    I worked at GB Railfreight full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, friendly colleagues, flat hierarchy and approachable senior management team. Emphasis on entertainment for staff including day trips and charity occasions which was good for morale.

    Cons

    Staff often changed job titles, which led to confusion in who took ownership when problems arose. No clear definitions on responsibilities often meant issues weren't dealt with as quickly as they should have been. Employees often promoted from within but not in an easily identifiable career path.
