    I worked at Transport for NSW full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great career opportunities, good to work for a company that has a great mission and working with passionate people

    Cons

    It's still government and your life will be ruled by policies and briefing notes. There is a desire to change that which is obvious, but it's still a very risk adverse environment which is taken too far and doesn't support innovation. Still too slow to deal with the leaders who are toxic bullies until a bit too much damage has been done.

    Advice to Management

    Try to see how much can be stripped out on everything having a briefing note would help productivity no end. Question every policy - is it making life easier for people? was it put in because of one incident? Act fast on the bullies, stop waiting until whole teams are destroyed - it's not doing great things for your employer brand - at the very least care about that
