    I have been working at TransGrid full-time

    Pros

    Very varied role. Different site/job each week (depending on current projects). OT is optional unless an emergency situation. Extremely high safety culture. Awesome benefits, pay and super. Very supportive Employee Assistance Program (EAP). 9 Day fortnight and a good work/life balance. Continuous Training. Opportunity to learn a lot from some very bright sparks in the industry if you possess a conscientious/positive...

    Cons

    Excessive amounts of mandatory paperwork involved with a single job. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. You will not be adequately compensated if you don't actively negotiate and hustle in networks. There are implicit tracks, and it's possible to be tracked onto a slower curve. There is a long, drawn out process involved with skills development. The onus is on you in the end.

    Pros

    Some great people with passion to do the right thing for the long term good of the company

    Company focused on short term wins at any cost (people, culture and work practices). Extreme sexism

    Advice to Management

    Diversity is more than a tick box for the board

    I worked at TransGrid

    Pros

    9 day Fortnight are good

    Cons

    Worst place to work. Sexist Work place with jobs for the boys. No one is given a fair go and despite the policies no one ever follows them nor are they held to task for not following them. Disgusting place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to what your staff are saying rather than assuming you know best

    I worked at TransGrid

    Pros

    Can't find anything over my time.

    Cons

    Bunch of idiots at the middle/junior management level. Inexperienced middle leaders/managers, micro-management is order of the day. Lack of right decision making resulting in inefficiencies and waste of resources - the reason for ever increasing electricity bills. Most of long serving staff doesn't have managerial/leadership ability and no sense of purpose for the organisation. They are time wasters. Some are lost in...

    Get better organised. Loose ends and stop fudging the numbers to look good with the regulator and owners.

    Pros

    Great if you are an Electrical Engineer. Big projects with rubbery timetables and plenty of overseas junkets. The Senior Executive group is so busy fighting itself politically no-one seriously oversees your work.

    Cons

    The big political games by Senior Management get in the way of providing a positive work environment. Lack of respect from the rest of the Industry makes continuing your career at another company very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the politics.
