Electrical Engineer in Sydney Australia
on 8 June 2022
Good place to work
Very relaxing place to work. Good salary and many opportunities to act in different roles. However, as with all government roles there is a lot of red tape.
Senior Risk Manager in Burwood NSW

Sydney Trains
Good job, great people to work with at lower level, and lower and the majority senior management. Job Security is an issue, as there have been a number of restructures, and even though they have consultation, the decision of the makeup of the area is a done deal.
Train Crew in Sydney NSW

Your experience there depends on who you know.
It seems to be a place of who you know rather than what you know to get any promotions or career change in Sydney Trains. Some people get all the career development opportunities over and over again and others get nothing. Management is reactive rather than proactive at the moment they are terrible and have no consideration for train crew or station staff and the impact that it has on them. There is no work-life balance when you are train crew or station staff. It only exists for office staff. You cannot get leave for months at a time and it can go over a year especially when they are short-staffed.

Management is pale, male and stale
While there is a diverse culture within the organisation it is difficult to progress into senior management. Many good people found better jobs in other areas of transport when promotions were not forthcoming. Essentially it became a boys club.
Customer Service in Sydney NSW

great place to work
Very complex role in customer service. every day is different and challenging. Probably the best workplace I had in the past 18 years. I would not change it
