    Pros

    Other than the travel benefits there really is not anything that you cant get from any other employer.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance here. You work all hours of the clock. Example of starts time are 0214, 0319, 0112, 1458, 1952. You can work 12 days straight and have 2 days off. Also you can do both morning and afternoons in the same fortnight. You can work 1715 have a day off work say 0346 and back to afternoons the next day. Not recommended for those with families or those who want a social life.

    Current Intern - Cadet Engineer (Electrical) in Sydney
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Railcorp for more than a year

    Pros

    - Excellent pay compared to other internships. 45k/year paid pro rata (~$23/hr) with yearly increases - Work/life/study balance. Cadets & interns capped at 38hrs/week - Very laid back, meet great people and some very interesting characters - Engineers are highly knowledgeable about the railways - Everyone is very helpful - Not much stress - Not much office politics (as far as I can tell)

    Cons

    - Political agenda of currently elected government dictates operations - Bureaucracy - Not much incentive to perform. No bonuses for working hard, can be a bludger and make as much as a hard worker - Difficult to make things happen. Lots of forms and signatures from everyone needed - Very little engineering design work (very difficult to get placement as cadet/intern - even grads find it tough). Engineering work is almost all project management/construction related
