lon:gog https://www.glassdoor.com?employer_id=1257759 May 9th, 2024 12:00AM Open Open GTR (Govia Thameslink Railway) Talent Acquisition London, England Siloed working, no progression and complacent about bullying The industry is really interesting and you can meet some great people. Free travel is great and that along with a great pension are a good addition to a below-average salary banding I had a manager who was supported by leadership in actively working against the ambitions of their team. On the job learning was micromanaged with team members being pushed to learning which didn't suit their aspirations and blocked from learning which interested them. On more than one occasion, I asked my manager to support me with dealing with bullying behaviour (once from within the team) and was fobbed off. My manager was also unable to understand the targets being set to our team, especially around diverse candidate pools. Team members who missed those targets were given recognition for their efforts, but the manager took credit for the targets that were hit when talking with senior leadership. 1.0 POSITIVE 1.0 POSITIVE -1.0 DISAPPROVE 0.0 2.0 3.0 1.0 1.0 2.0 3.0 1.0 1257759 Open Dig more deeply into management competencies and build a coaching-led environment 0.0 [] REGULAR No No 6.0 Open May 13th, 2024 12:57AM May 13th, 2024 12:57AM Go-Ahead

lon:gog https://www.glassdoor.com?employer_id=1257759 Mar 12th, 2024 12:00AM Open Open GTR (Govia Thameslink Railway) Train Driver Company going backwards - Safety not priority Work with great people , local managers are good, pay reasonable and the job varied. Anti social shifts, company has regressed over the past few years , safety is not a priority , only interested in profit and service delivery over the individual , the Regional Operating Centre lie and are clueless. Senior Managers so far out of touch it’s laughable and do not care about the operational workforce. There is no ongoing training and development , massive blame culture and if you are bad at your job you get looked after better than those that do the job well every day. Nepotism is rife in this company - jobs are for mates or if your face fits. -1.0 NEGATIVE -1.0 NEGATIVE -1.0 DISAPPROVE 0.0 3.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 3.0 1.0 2.0 1257759 Open Listen to those that work the job and stop dismissing them because you think you know better sat in an office 0.0 [] REGULAR No Yes 9.0 Open Mar 15th, 2024 07:23PM Mar 15th, 2024 07:23PM Go-Ahead
