    Great Operations, Tough Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsInteresting business challenges, strong safety culture, exciting growth through acquisition means plenty of career opportunities. Anyone with railroad operations, sales, customer service, maintenance of way or locomotive maintenance experience - particularly those with a willingness to relocate - would be well served by joining G&W.

    ConsSenior management not always on the same page, still some old-school railroaders in senior management. Since railroads run 24/7, 365 operations employees need to be willing to work in all kinds of weather.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate folks need to listen to people in regional leadership teams.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good company that emphasizes safety at all times.

    Transportation Coordinator (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits package and competitive salary. Bonuses for safety.

    ConsRailroad work in general involves an unconventional schedule. Your family time will be limited in some entry level positions and lower seniority positions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
