Pros: free travel for you and partner, final salary pension, 30 days hols
Cons: slow decision making, few too many management layers, quite old school
Having worked at TfL and London Underground for 7 years I will be sad to leave at the end of the year.
Working there for 20+ years is common (one of the managers has been there 46 years!) and this epitomises the place.
The culture is hierarchical and as a result sometimes decisions don't get made quickly. However, its a happy place to be, people are – more... welcoming and approachable and work/life balance is very strong and supported.
This is partly because of the heavily unionised environment but also because management want their employees to be engaged and give great customer service. I strongly recommend working at TfL and London Underground. – less
