Learning and development

Learning and development

New South Wales, Australia

Valuable experience if you have the resilience and patience to work around constant roadblocks & challenges

The good things

Some really dedicated people with extensive experience, genuinely committed to making the public transport experience better for the citizens of NSW, and upholding public sector values.

The challenges

At times highly reactive management decisions. New managers and leadership from private sector parachuted in to 'innovate' but who don't understand what it means to work in the public sector, or have the required networks, or credibility / track record to influence & get things done in government. Others who have been there way too long with an attitude of entitlement, are frustrating and difficult to work with, but continue to be protected by bad managers.
