Pros

Fair wage with decent health care coverage (could be better).

Cons

There's no discipline rule for employees. Which gives CN management unlimited options when disciplining employees. This can be very unfair to employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to work on improving communication with all employees.

    Pros

    Great wages and benefits. They have an employee stock purchase plan where the company matches $0.35 of every $1 you put in. Adding your family to your health insurance doesn't cost you extra.

    Cons

    Depending on where you live you might not be home much. Each job/position is put out for bidding. It is then awarded based on seniority and your "qualifications". Some jobs are considered mobile and you are paid a per diem to help pay for your hotels, food and travel. Some jobs are "headquartered" and only pay you your hourly wage. Problem is there might not be a per diem job available or you don't have enough seniority which means you will have to work a headquartered job that may not be all that close to where you live.
