    Pros

    Nice Offices. Some Good People

    Cons

    Contractors Run a mock and rule the roost. Very Poor Senior Management who care nothing for employees and who micro manage to the nth degree. I have seen employees let go just to make space for contractors. Think twice before working here unless you are on contract

    I have been working at Roads and Maritime Services NSW full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on large scale budgets

    Cons

    Lack of promotion from within the organisation. Promotions tend to give to contractors rather than existing staffs.
    Lots of manual processes in finance where Central Finance team is not helpful in providing guidance and support.
    Non-value adding roles in finance as time wasted on fixing system issues and running reports
    Managers only go to meetings all day and not doing any real work.
    Too much politics which deplete talent and career progression opportunity
    Career progression is purely based on "who-you-know" in the organisation

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your staff to understand their work
    Engage staff at all levels, not just at manager and controller level
    Promote career progression within the finance team

    Opportunities for professional development, co-workers, great teamwork environment, encourages undertaking of courses and career development, long term employment opportunities, great salaries and opportunities for overtime.

    Reluctance to implement change or act on decisions especially in election years meaning hard work and effort on projects went to waste esp if new leaders or management came in

    Pros

    North Sydney offices well located

    Poor executive leadership leading to an avoidance and blame culture. There's potential to improve but needs a good overhaul starting at the top to make it a good place to work

    Advice to Management

    Revisit your senior leadership team
