Project Administrator (Former Employee) – Sheffield – 1 March 2018
I worked as many different roles within NWR and found the job culture to be different in each. Getting out and fixing hardware on the side of the track is fun, but the general culture of the staff I worked with was lazy and selfish. In the Projects department, the culture is much better and you get to make a bigger difference.
Good benefits and wages
Some managers promoted through seniority, not ability
Technical Office Manager (Overhead Line) (Former Employee) – London – 5 March 2018
Managing all day to day aspects of running an office. Producing SSOWPS plans for the staff and contractors. Learning a completely new sector, the staff were great at teaching me everything about the Overhead Line. Management were very involved at every level. Great place to work. Hardest part was producing a lot of paperwork that didn't always get used. I enjoyed working with everyone here, everyone went above and beyond their duties to work as a great team
