Can be challenging with weather conditions and traffic. Parents and children and scool administration are happy to see someone at the crossing. Some crossings are better than others.

It's not a good culture. There is discrimination in the organisation. The organisation does not give any chances for growing your career

I would not recommend anyone looking for career growth, to work for RMS. They do not treat their employees fairly. When I joined RMS I thought, I would be given training and opportunity b development in my career. But in last ten years, nothing has been initiated by them.

State Government

Excellent place to work with excellent benefits. Constantly changing with challenging and fast paced work that meant that every day was entirely different.

The RMS was formed on 1 Nov 2011 with key accountabilities of delivering new roads and maritime infrastructure to optimise safety and effective and efficient use. Also effective and efficient traffic management and use of the road network. The RMS is now part of Transport for NSW and aims to create a better transport system one that fundamentally is designed around the needs of the customer communities and economy.

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.

Lots of tech related issues with desks that didn't work at all and never seemed to be fixed

Work life balane and sense of achievement

Roads and Maritime Services is a great public sector agency. Appreciation and acknowledgement of good work has provided me with great opportunities to progress in my career. The agency has embraced technology and has always initiated projects for the well being of NSW public.

Fun and hard working environment

- Great flexible hours (start between 7am and 7pm) - Great work life balance - Very interesting job - Every day brings a new challenge I learnt a lot about communication skills and all round office work as well as the importance of having a excellent relationship with internal and external customers.

Great place to work

Lots of opportunities for professional development. Working with internal and external stakeholders on a variety of infrastructure projects in Sydney is a welcomed challenge.

A nice place to work

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.

Customer service oriented based organisation

Friendly working environment. Flexible working conditions.

The organisation offers a lot of diverse opportunities. If you are looking for work life balance, this is the place for you. Due to current reforms across Public Service, jobs may not be as secure.
