"Network Rail has a very good working environment that understands its staff as people and not just employees. Help has always been readily given when I have asked for it."
Graduate, Milton Keynes
"In terms of working on the job, Network Rail is very hierarchical and therefore trying to deliver can be frustrating at times. Socialising in HQ at Network Rail is great though, and there are lots of people who will invite you out after work."
Graduate, Milton Keynes
"Sometimes the organisation seems lethargic as it is so big, but the attitude you bring to work can overcome this."
Graduate, London
"A work/life balance is a key part of Network Rail's culture, which is very good here. There is lots of socialising between graduates, and also with other colleagues depending on your placement/department."
Graduate, Milton Keynes
"Everyone gets along with everyone else. In a year I've not met one person who isn't 'nice'."
Graduate, Swindon
"The firm is very sociable and helpful as there is no discrimination in terms of hierarchy."
Graduate, London
"The workforce is quite relaxed and makes it an enjoyable place to work. Generally, there are quite flexible hours to ensure a good work/life balance. The only slight improvement needed would be the communication between Capital and Opex teams. That said, there is great teamwork and a helpful attitude across the whole business."
Graduate, Manchester
