    I worked at Network Rail full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in corporate functions, there was a good team spirit, and lots of opportunities around the business for high performing staff.

    Cons

    A lot of old timers who were less respectful of young ambitious employees, but not such a big problem. A bit bureaucratic and slow paced sometimes.
