    I have been working at High Speed Two full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to join an organisation where your skills are in constant demand, that is being driven forward and where you can actually make a difference in one of the biggest infrastructure projects in a century, then HS2 Ltd may be a good fit.

    It also has the added advantage of being fairly new so you have the possibility of shaping the company itself as the project develops and doesn't carry around a lot of deadweight like older, established organisations do.

    Supportive of working from home, where appropriate.

    Physical and mental health awareness is promoted across the organisation..

    Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Be prepared to be pressured. The project works to a timeline and the pressure is on to meet those deadlines. You may not be working til midnight every night but don't be surprised if you find yourself working extra hours.

    Advice to Management

    In the rush to get things done, don't forget the fundamentals when it comes to managing change. Communication is key, people can handle change a lot better if it's not a surprise.
