    I have been working at Amtrak full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free train travel, especially in the north-east is a huge plus.

    Cons

    People and processes are inefficient and slow. Very little accountability. Way too many managers, directors, business heads, etc. and very few work horses to do the grunt of the work. Growth is based on others retiring or quitting and rarely on personal strength. Thereby, people in leadership are in high positions because of lack of choice rather than personal strength.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable and take corrective action immediately. Promote individuals based on performance and not familiarity or lack of choice. Make every employee take the train once a month, because some people in key positions don't know their own product.
