TFL is changing drastically, they are trying to become more modern and efficient, but the high level of legacy stuff represents a blocker. Perfect place if you want to stay in the same company forever.

Productive and fun place to work
Lead Technical and Rolling Stock Auditor (Current Employee) –  Victoria, Greater London16 September 2017
TfL is a good company to work for , with plenty of fringe benefits, equal opportunity and generally a good organisation to work for.
A typical day at work for most people start 9:00hrs and finishes at 16:00hrs. Flexible working hours is also encouraged , example, workers can start at 7:00hrs and finishes at 14:00hrs or start later and finishes later too, as long as the contracted 7 hours is completed.
There are a lot to learn working at TfL because of the mixed culture and how to deal and work with all in harmony.
The hardest part of the job is getting the different Directorate in TfL to agree on any burning issue that requires immediate attention.
The most enjoying part of the job is meeting set tasks and mile stones.
Pros
Free travel allowance on buses and tubes
Cons
None I can think of

Make a difference every day
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  London1 September 2017
Working at TfL in my role provides a breadth of challenges and experience, with no two days the same. I take a pride in Keeping London Moving, especially with some of the incredible events like the Olympics, London Marathon and Notting Hill. A firm part of the Greater London Authority, there is an impressive amount of reaction to the daily irregularities.
Pros
Free Oyster card for you and your partner
Cons
Job titles can seem odd!

highly responsible position, but to much travelling involed
Welding Inspector/engineer (Former Employee) –  London26 July 2017
a very highly responsible role which I enjoyed, learning all aspects of the health and safety, and working on my own, hardest part of the job was keeping up with the work load, down side was the hostile environment when going to the office, management was very supportive, but the travelling was to much, most enjoyable was the responsibility and working alone most of the time.
Pros
job security and pensions
Cons
too much travelling to, and in and around London

nice crew, low ceiling for career options
Office assistant (Former Employee) –  London, UK31 May 2017
Having had several TFL jobs they are all well paid for what they are and most people in the jobs are nice, honest, down to earth people.

Work culture is good although sometimes people who have been there a while are very complacent. Management can do little to get these people out unfortunately which can make motivation a bit poor.

Most managers were great and the sort of people you could go for a pint with after work. Not all of them obviously, but generally the office culture means there is a good level of social around work.

Hardest part of the job can be that it is very busy, but that's part of the package really. It can also be the enjoyable part of the job. The worst part is the constant threat of financial cuts or office closures. It can also be hard to move internally unless you have networked sufficientl.
Pros
good pay, good crew, good benefits
Cons
very busy, threat of job/finance cuts, complacent long termers

Office Space Planner and CAFM operator (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London25 May 2017
Creating beneficial spacial layouts for head office and operational sites whilst working within the industry standards. The culture in the workplace is relaxed and friendly. A difficult part was balancing multiple and varied jobs for short deadlines but it can be managed. The environment helped me to learn new computer programmes and systems i had not come across before and to be more efficient with the way i work.
