      I worked at London Underground full-time

      Pros

      Great opportunities to expand skills, knowledge and become much more health and safety aware! From my personal experience, work place was pleasant, fair, balanced, organized and social.

      Cons

      Security needs to be improved. The wellbeing of staff and passengers is of most importance.

      Advice to Management

      Allocate more resources to security, including cctv, entry site point checks, as well as overall passenger safety.

      Promote staff according to their on the job proven abilities and not just because they're good at blagging their way through interviews.
