“A good place to train and learn”

There are opportunities to develop and progress in the company. I have had some excellent training whilst working here, some of the best I have ever experienced. The salary and the benefits are good. As a staff member you will receive regular one on one feedback and plans for your personal development which has great implications if you are keen to progress.

You are expected to perform above and beyond. Any overtime you do will be unpaid as the roles are generally salaried. However, if you worked through a contractor such as Amey, you would receive overtime pay. Double standards. Management could benefit from a review of their performance as well as their employees.

Not getting overtime pay when contractors who do the same job do.

“Rewarding if you do your job well”

You get an amazing training you could imagine and lots of support. Following this, it leads to to many opportunities thats you wouldn't have got otherwise. You can evolve within the company if you want to. Management listen and you are able to report and get feedback often as you go along. The pay and the benefits package are really interesting.

They have very high expectations and you have to work hard and strive not to disappoint them. Some of the management tend to expect more from the staff than from themselves, which leads to unfair treatments, as well as the fact that you don't get overtime if you work for them, whereas contractors do.

You have to get used to the high expectations

“Good place to start and learn before moving on”

The opportunities for learning are very good and they give you a chance to start with the right bagage of knowledge. You are well supervised and management is supportive so you feel secure and valued. You also get to work on many different projects so you are never bored.

The management is not very flexible. The rules are unmovable and that doesn't allow you much freedom of action and initiative. The whole organisation could be better so that things run more smoothly and staff learn by watching more senior positions.

A vast deal of opportunities

“You'd expect a better company as it's been around for a long time”

Salary and benefits package are really good for a amount and difficulty of work required from you. The accent is put on training and you spend a lot of time doing just that...

That this amount of training is required and not just a waste of money remains to be seen. Management tends to not take into account that you've been trained and know what you are doing if they think they know better. They have high expectations but only towards the staff. Management can show poor performances and not be blamed for it. There's not much flexibility.

It is generally disappointing as you'd expect better organisational skills

Network Rail is at the heart of revitalising Britain’s railway. From Crossrail – Europe’s largest civil engineering project – to investment in world-class stations and major programmes of electrification, we're involved in some of the most ambitious and diverse ventures that this country has ever seen. Britain’s railway has been growing for 150 years, without significant renewal. And yet it’s required to carry more freight and passengers than ever before. We anticipate up to 400 million more passenger journeys by as soon as 2020. Investment and modernisation are absolutely essential. So we’re building the railway of the future. It’s a colossal challenge. And we’re relishing every moment. We’re driven to delight our customers and help the economy thrive. We’ve already developed a world class reputation for taking care of our track - ours is one of the safest railways in Europe. Now, we’re on the way to becoming a world leader in asset management. These are a few of our largest current projects: • Crossrail: a new cross-London service which will transform travel in the capital • Birmingham New Street: a radical overhaul, which will spur significant regeneration • Reading Station: redevelopment of the biggest bottle neck on the great Western Main Line • The Electrification Spine: a new overhead electrification of four of our main routes Naturally, we’re constantly seeking new talent to help us achieve our ambitious goals.
