    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Railcorp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Conditions as a government company, including RDO's, and often flexible working conditions.
    Decent pay for IT related work.
    Company has direct impact on a large number of people every day

    Cons

    Frustration with red tape
    Some staff difficult to work with
    Difficult to innovate
    There is no pay for performance culture - all staff on EBA get standard increases, so no ability to accelerate progression/pay beyond formal promotions
    Transport can have bad reputation

    Advice to Management

    Give more control to employee's to innovate / direct their ideas.
    Make decisions quicker - too much time spent analysing decisions, many of which could have been implemented and checked for value for the time spent in decision paralysis

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Railcorp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Other than the travel benefits there really is not anything that you cant get from any other employer.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance here. You work all hours of the clock. Example of starts time are 0214, 0319, 0112, 1458, 1952. You can work 12 days straight and have 2 days off. Also you can do both morning and afternoons in the same fortnight. You can work 1715 have a day off work say 0346 and back to afternoons the next day. Not recommended for those with families or those who want a social life.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what people want and not say this is the way that it always has been. Train crew would like a life style roster so that they can have a life.and not feel so tired with the swing shifts that jump around all over the place. It would also make the roster clerk job easier as they would not have people ringing them all day to swap for shifts that they are after.

    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
