Education & Instruction
Having worked for a NSW Government agency before, prepare to deal with lots of micro management and report based assessments. They love their reports! Top heavy middle management too.
Backstabbing , boys club, bias and bullcrap. The list goes on .. if you are a management butt licker you will fit in well at the railway.. if you have an opinion you won't fit in ... set ups are rampant, being thrown under the bus is a common feature also
Work environment in government service not conducive to the exercise of initiative and innovation. Rewards are provided to those who toe the metaphorical line and any one who refuses to accept that proposition is generally not well regarded by those who have the power to make decisions and policy. In short show signs of a desire to change the system and be creative and you will inevitably be left behind or relegated to the also rans when promotions are in the offing! Bitter yes, successful in my chosen career YES!!!
Working with teams who where collaborators, intelligent and with respect for each other, from the top down and bottom up. Fun, exciting and all contributing to making a difference. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
When I first graduated it was perfect to ease into teaching however cut 1 year of casual work and it became a little more stressful to find work and earn enough to support my self. I remember before I graduated we were told that we were coming to a “retirement period” where majority of current teachers are above 65 and are going to retire. It’s been almost 7 years since then and I still haven’t seen it happen. Which is why I left the country in search of a permanent teaching job.
