Job Culture
It's always difficult running a 21st century railway which was built in the 19th century
Project Administrator (Former Employee) –  Sheffield1 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.
Pros
Good benefits and wages
Cons
Some managers promoted through seniority, not ability

Good rewards but fragmented culture
Operations Assistant (Current Employee) –  Crewe, Cheshire3 September 2018
The company offers good rewards in terms of salary, although the management bands 1-4 are very unhappy with their treatment over the last few years.

Safety is the biggest priority but the safety culture is still lacking and there is little emphasis on understanding, it is more geared to briefing and getting staff to sign, rather than engaging and understanding in meaningful feedback.

A brilliant workplace. I would advise anyone to work there, it has a fantastic work life balance. Progression is actively encouraged and movement between departments is easy to do.
