Great place to work
I was lucky to work in a department where everyone was valued and respected. I had a great line manager. Made many friends over the years. There is nothing to stop you advancing.

Bullying environment. Probably had a good case for constructive dismissal.
Jobs for the boys. Management paid lip service to following/understanding project management methodology (their own). Wasting public money hand over fist due to this. I was made to feel very isolated when questioning this and felt I had to leave.

Proactive and fun
Its a fun place to work but it depends on where you are based. Palestra is not the idea place to be based due to the fact that you wont have a permanent desk but other locations are beautiful yo be based at.
Cons
re-org every two or three years

Fun workplace
The time that i spent at transport for London was great. Working in a team is something that comes naturally to me and I felt like it gave me a great insight into how working as an engineer would be.

A good place to work
Benefits are quite extensive, salary good but not the best, interesting place to work. Some of the governance processes can be quite frustrating some times

Tough environment but really interesting
At a senior level there are a lot of challenges faced at Transport for London (TfL), but if you are the sort of person that thrives in that environment then you will not be bored.
There are a huge number of very talented people in TfL too; there's a lot to learn from the staff and the customers.

There are few restful days in SHE, it is full-on all of the time. Personal accountability is important, because mistakes could become public.

Love my team
I really enjoy working with my colleagues at the station. I feel supported and appreciated. It can be very stressful at times as the station gets really busy and a bit overwhelmed by the passenger flow, but everyone is very proactive and supportive.

Great place to work - needs to review recruitment process
They pay well and the benefits are great. However growth can be slow as no one leaves the organisation, this combined with 30% reduction means there are very little opportunities. Additionally the team know who they want before they place adverts.

Very poor management
Some great people work for TfL
Worked in the call centre based at Greenwich

Management very poor and it would seem you got ahead by cosying up to bosses. If your face fits you were fine. Very cliquey.

Challenging but Exciting
I work on average 9 hours a day during the week. Working with several project teams across the Directorate to build up and agree budgets involves several meetings. This gives me an opportunity to mix with numerous people with great ideas from different backgrounds and cultures. A challenging period of time but at the same time lots of fun brainstorming and learning new things along the way for me.

Really lovely place to work
Great place to work. Friendly teams and everyone seems to have the same passion for what they do. Offices are easy to get to and incentives to be inclusive are high on priority.

Not a very good experience.
The initial training was great but once in the role the training was lacking and there was no clear structure or organisation. The management was very bad and not receptive to new ideas.
Pros
Free travel.
Cons
No structure.

Excellent team and work life balance would definitely recommend this organisation
Really relaxed environment to work within. Staff are really friendly and very eager to work together collaboratively to achieve goals. Most enjoyable part was having full autonomy of your project. Most challenging is the bureaucracy within the organisation and the various levels of authorisation required. This really slows down the speed you can accomplish your project within.

Multifaceted Job
This job requires constant teamwork and attention to detail. It also requires flexibility at times to accomplish tasks outside of your job description
