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

Pros

Exciting with ability to set new standards in what a railway delivers for its customers. Teams are made up of highly capable and motivated individuals from diverse backgrounds.

Cons

As a public sector entity be prepared for the myriad of governance stages and at times very bureaucratic engagement needed both within the company and with the Department for Transport

Advice to Management

Keep up the work to build confidence not only in our delivery capability but that we can be trusted to push out the boundaries of what a railway can do for both its customers, and the nation as a whole

    I have been working at High Speed Two full-time

    Pros

    Lots of lower level staff - both technical and non-technical - wanting to make really positive contribution to a world class infrastructure project.

    Cons

    However, lower level staff are frustrated by the lack of strong direction and management from more senior staff. HR and management support at time of company transformation is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Make HR function fit for purpose - at the moment, it is completely dysfunctional. Make it a requirement on senior managers to give regular feedback and direction to lower level staff.

    I worked at High Speed Two as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The drive to get the job done is good in areas. Scale of the project is huge.

    Cons

    The drive of some people to protect their own backs and jobs instead of thinking about the bigger picture is negative and frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people from all levels and all contract types to contribute and don't just listen to senior management permanent people as the consultants and contractors have a huge amount of knowledge to give
