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 ManagementAdvice

When you ask people to share cost-saving measures, make sure that you actually want to hear the answers.
