I was not really suited to RMS due to my inability to tow the line... I do not do political speak and would rather tells things as they are... really difficult when you are required to basically tell lies.

Lack of direction and leadership clearly present within the organisation. Contract managers are not construction minded and mid to senior-level management, not present and or not willing to be flexible and provide some stability and guidance to the overall atmosphere and team. Too many young engineers in higher leadership roles and clearly out of there zone.

Great work life balance. Management vary, some are excellent, others leave you wondering how on earth they got the job. ABW environment is encouraged but seems actively fought against by most staff who sat in the exact same place every day. Hardest part of the job: is actively working without being distracted by personal life dramas of other employees. Most enjoyable part of the job: the end of year get together's to celebrate achievements do make you feel like part of something amazing when you see what everyone is contributing to NSW across the org.
Pros
Free parking on site
Cons
Lots of tech related issues with desks that didn't work at all and never seemed to be fixed

The RMS is a leading Transport Agency. It has always been in the forefront of Intelligent Transport System technologies. I have worked for 16 years with RMS. This has been a very rewarding and enjoyable experience. I have worked alongside highly skilled and professional staff in Traffic Management, Road Safety, Intelligent Transport Systems and life cycle management of assets. I have completed pioneering and innovative projects in ITS across Australia.

Too big and unyieldy

Pros
good pay
Cons
bullying

working as a school crossing supervisor is a rewarding experience, getting to greet children's smiling faces each morning is very uplifting, knowing that children have arrived at school safely each day. safety is important and is the main aspect of this job and being able to do this is worthwhile. greeting people and saying hello to children is one the best part of the job. Having other people to call on to fill your position when you are unavailable is also good aspect of this job. the hardest part of the job is being on the road when motorists do not obey instructions I.E. not stopping and speeding through the crossing. Being able to ring and report any hazards or difficulties is invaluable in these situations and management are supportive and encouraging in all endeavours.
Pros
close to home
Cons
not enough hours

The RMS was my work place for 25yrs, I learnt how to communicate with all walks of customers, the management were easy to talk to if you had any problems with customers and staff, My co-workers were the best, the hardest part of my job were the irate customers. The most enjoyable part of my job were the customers we saw on a daily basis, the lovely pensioners who would come in and always say hello.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
Irate customers

My typical day usually involves meeting stakeholders, getting their requirements, documenting these in a BRD, reviewing and developing business process diagrams. I also organise meetings, make presentations and prepare status reports to management etc. One of the best things about RMS are the people I work with, we make a great team.
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
No milk supplied in the fridge

Typical day included reviewing progress on individual tasks through to follow ups and team tasks. Leant a great deal about customer requirements, options analysis, business case submission, resource management, financial tracking and especially project task scheduling and reporting. Management was supportive and strategic thinkers. Co-workers were fantastic experts in their field and always prepared to provide valuable input and quality work. Hardest part of the job was securing funding and allocation of IT resources, regardless of advanced submission, planning and regular follow-ups. Most enjoyable part of the job was the volume of projects available and interesting team members and skill sets.
Pros
Nice Location with great food around
Cons
Funding delays

The typical days work for me was from installations, repairs and testing of various electrical telephony and civil installations. From working at the RMS i learnt a lot about working near and with live traffic whilst installing lighting and emergency phones and also electrical signage. My co workers were a great set of guys to work with and had lots of knowledge which i gained benefit in acquiring from them and also giving in return. On the other hand upper management were not so good but my immediate manager was to me an inspirational person with a lot of knowledge and authority against upper management. the hardest part was dealing with engineers who have never used a tool except a computer to tell us how we should do a job and 99% of the time they were incorrect in how the job was to be executed. the most enjoyable part of the job was for me working with a great team of guys.
Pros
Doing work which helped the community
Cons
Travelling in traffic and working near live traffic.
