Overall reviews at Morson International
Operational Manager | United Kingdom | 13 Apr 2014
Rewarding Company to work for.
At present I am involved in implementing Possession Management on behalf of Network Rail in the Wessex region which spans from Exeter to London and up to the M4 corridor. My duties include:
Site Operational Manager. Site audits, briefings and ensuring staff are carrying out their duties to the correct rules and procedures
Implementing basic and complex Possessions with multiple train movements as a Senior Person in Charge of Possession (SPICOP).
Taking the isolation of the 3rd rail from the ECO (Level A,Procedure A).
Carrying out Safety Critical Assessments on competent protection staff.
I have been involved on the railway for the past 17 years, starting on the shovel working with the Permanent Way. Over the years I have gained experience in many different aspects of railway procedures. I have achieved this through my own personal development and having the good fortune of working with old "railwayman" which some has since retired.
ProsDiversity of working on different projects with professional staff from all walks of life.

Don't believe what they say. If you want a job without benefits this is for you.u
With two years experience of this company from the day they took over the contract they managed to achieve very little for the workforce and only did their masters dirty work.
I will never work for them again. In the end I rightly trusted no one and got no reward for all the effort I put into establishing and developing the specialised knowledge and skills of my position with this company or their Ex-REME masters. I was rewarded with redundancy at the base rate. Ten years in post for nothing.
My co-workers were mostly ex REME, they may stand together to protect themselves, but they had no intention of helping or cooperating with anyone who was not one of them. Do not work with ex-army types if you were not one of them.
Getting justice and fair play for those aggrieved staff. This made others in similar positions open to accusations and threats.
Getting out of the workplace and doing my job with the customers.
Conswork, grievances, take-all, crawling, disrespectful, waffle.

excellent stepping stone to my Career
This was the gate way of my railway career, learned everything to know about track at morson, as I supervisor actually involved in all stages, after that I wanted to be in more challenging job, plan/manage and deliver which I'm currently doing at Colas Rail.
