I have been working at Alaska Railroad full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – The Alaska Railroad is a critical link to the State of Alaska. Working here allows me, in my own small way, to make a big difference in the State I live in. Most of the people who work there are excellent people and make staying there worth it.
Cons – The current economy in Alaska is hitting the Railroad hard. Non-union employees have gotten one raise in the last 5 years, and the future outlook is not any better. The hard times of the lower 48 are making their way up North. Senior Management in my area of the Railroad is very difficult to work for and makes me wish that the rest of the people working there were equally disagreeable, so I could feel good about deciding to leave to find other employment.
Advice to Senior Management – When you ask people to share cost-saving measures, make sure that you actually want to hear the answers.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Alaska Railroad full-time for more than a year
Pros – Some of the people are nice.
Cons – Management is inflexible, unethical, and extremely unwilling to change. It is the "good ol' boys" network there. Management is unwilling to help their staff grow. Any new suggestions are declined immediately without thought.
Very disappointing employer.
Advice to Senior Management – Treat staff better. Listen to staff. Value them. Do not treat them like underlings. An executive management overhaul should be considered because most of management do not know how to grow or lead. Poor management and communication has resulted in bad habits.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
