I worked at BNSF Railway as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Good pay, great place to work. Experience gave a good indication of life on the railroad. I would recommend it to anyone who is planning to pursue a career in railroads to see if you really like the lifestyle.

Cons

Lots of travel and long hours ( I actually enjoyed this aspect, but not everyone does). A few of the old timers can be very cynical (I found most people to be nice and helpful)

    I worked at BNSF Railway full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pay, decent benefits, majority of employees like their job and do a good job while at work.

    Cons

    Awful senior management/middle management. Exceptionally high front line supervisor turnover. Not enough time off, poor training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the supervisors that work the front line and back them.
