    Pros

    It is a capital intensive business that require critical thinking even in Train Service Capacity it either will conquer the person unable to deal with the demands or will elevate them to position of Self fulfillment. Financially it can be quite rewarding but if you come to the railroad for paycheck I personally think you are here for the wrong reasons, I came here for the railroad and to bring as much to the table as I could muster, I believe that BNSF fosters a strong work ethic and makes safety a way of Life. I am Proud to say I work for the BNSF Railway!

    Cons

    I can not come up wit any negatives about the Railroad from a company standpoint. I believe the BNSF Railway makes decisions that protect the stockholders and since they run they own and run the company and pay my salary I have very little to complain about maybe I could complain about the folks who clean the motors but that is not the company's fault it is the employees fault in that position not doing his or her job with most loyal dedication to the company that pays them...

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management Both Senior and Frontline(trainmasters,ect) we should as A Company require by rule that all employees must actually learn and pass a test on the History of BNSF its predecessors the passing score should be set at 75% and the test should be at least 500 questions, with write in portions covering up to 25 % of the total test. The employee should only get 8 hours to pass the test at one sitting with minimal breaks. Failure of the test would constitute loss of job or promotion ie: Conductor from New hire status, and forfeiture of any pay earned for time consumed completing the test there shall not be a retest on this test it is Pass or Fail. This is my opinion and I believe if the people who worked for BNSF truly knew railroad history they would never question a written rule....
