What Graduates Say About Them
  • Development and career opportunities Healthy and motivating work culture.
  • The forefront of the transition to net zero. Application of engineering knowledge.
  • They fully embrace diversity and are working towards continually improving the broader workplace culture. There are neurodivergent individuals within the business who receive appropriate accommodations and can be their best selves at the workplace because of this. Hybrid working is also a significant positive.
  • This company shows a commitment to the development of its students. This can be seen through the 4 rotations that make up the graduate program, where we are encouraged to experience all the corners of the business (e.g., my previous rotation before Civil Design was Construction), and in every team I have been finding only the most helpful people around me. Also, there is a huge portion of the company who have been here for 10-15+ years, which says a lot about the company and adds to the company culture as well.
  • Respect, training, compensation, work-life balance.
  • In my opinion, TransGrid doesn't have the worst thing: workloads may get intense, and positions wanted during the grad program may be taken by other grads.
  • I still need time to take sufficient responsibility during the program.
  • Undergoing lots of change can cause uncertainty and a lack of clarity.
  • I have encountered some individuals with difficult personalities; however, these individuals have all since left the company.
  • The worst thing would probably be that it is bound to NSW, but that's not a fault of the company as much as it is the nature of it. One other thing might be that due to the long working lifetimes of some staff at the same company, at times you find someone who believes themselves to be a master of their field and is then unwilling to learn, although the world and the industry are changing so rapidly. This happens so seldom, though I am nitpicking here.
