Good training is offered internally and externally. The colleagues I've met along the way have been fantastic. The benefits are pretty good, free Oyster passes for the tube are useful. There is a relatively good work/life balance.
This is not a fast paced work environment, if you are a dynamic person you may not enjoy it. Salaries are ok, but chances to progress are also slow. This is a relatively good place to gain some experience, but highly motivated, driven individuals would likely find it not to their suiting.
A lot of the management are management simply due to the length of time in the job, not the ability to do the job. Less of a hierarchy would resolve this.
Free travel on buses and tubes and 1/4 on the rail. Good manager.
No pay rise, as you are paid the same if you are on the same band. Being dismissed after personal problems in my life, after nearly 20 years of service, when they could have supported me. My department was pretty much the bastard son of TfL.
Nothing that I can recall was unusual.
The salary is good, and you get pay raises even in the times of crisis when you hear everyone complaining they don't get one. The benefits are good as well as the pensions and you can't complain about the atmosphere, Every one tends to get along.
It never really changes. People who start in this company can almost be sure they shall stay there and enjoy the comfortable way of working. You don't really get opportortunities to get a promotion and can even stay doing exactly the same job for 3 years. Management is lacking and there's no one to lead towards "betterness". There's not enough communication.
Once inside the bubble of TFL, you can forget how it feels like to be outside.
The company respects you work/life balance and can actually support you in times of need. The timetable is flexible and you can still have a social life. Some people are genuinely kind at heart and want to do good deeds around them. The salary, benefits and travel packages are really good.
Unfortunately, management is not really understanding and it sometimes feels like it is the staff against them. There is a lot of manipulation going on and you never know whether you are talking to the right person or not. People tend to work for themselves and rely on politics within the company.
Good colleagues but too many underlying things to make it the perfect place
You get a quite good salary, brilliant packages as far as pensions, travel etc are concerned so overall, working for that company is quite attractive. Moreover, you get to work of great projects that require a lot of planning and people. The work/life balance is excellent and the company is quite flexible.
Senior management is not what it should be. They are not as supportive as you who expect. It is also quite hard to progress within the company and it can be quite frustrating.You dont't feel as valued as you would like and some people take advantage of it as they don't do their job properly/
The company has good work ethics.
The basic compensation is good and you also get a bonus Generous holiday package – more than eight weeks a year Travel benefits are generous, not only you but also your partner gets free travel all over London. You can organise yourself in what work you do that week and how you do it
No positive proactive management of staff, not overseen and kept on the level, the most hard-working and honest and the laziest and shiftless are valued equally and treated the same. Don't like working shifts The effect of the unions and the strikes is negative Management listen to the unions more than to the staff, need to sort things out with the unions and be more aware of staff
More than eight weeks holiday a year!
Fair pay shouldn't be a benefit!
