NSW Government Employee Review

Very poor

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!!!

Pros

None I can think off

Cons

Expectation that you will work for nothing

Not so good

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

Pros

Great pay

Cons

No life, lying corrupt managers, glorified cleaners, lazy colleagues

Unnecessary Mirco management.

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.

Pros

Flex time

Cons
