Pros

This company really takes care of their employees, giving good bonuses when the company target revenues are hit, offering incentives to stay healthy, and ample opportunities to volunteer and give back to the community. It's a very positive place to work, where you will be known and befriended by others and are not just a number.

Cons

Many people stick with this company until retirement because it is such a good employer, this only drawback with that is the median age range is not exactly youthful. Younger hires are beginning to come in, but the work/social balance may leave something to be desired if you are looking for that.

  1. Great work like balance, but sacrifice the pay to get it.

    Pros

    Work life balance is the best reason to work for GATX and probably the second best reason is the type of people you would work with.

    Cons

    The compensation and career advancement opportunities are limited at GATX. GATX operates in a mature market and rail is the main component of its business.

    Pros

    I guess there are alot of fun events that the company puts on, but many times they are only for management. The benefits are pretty good. Salary is average unless you are managment. The business is not flashy but it is interesting and vital to the economy, You can learn a lot from people in the organization. The are plenty of lifers here so there must be something good. August hours are cool. Everyone is generally friendly, The new office space is outstanding. There is a lot of leeway with many jobs. Senior Management is very accessible especially Kenney. The others are fair also.

    Cons

    Opportunites are few and none. Kenney tries his best but he is a very moody boss. The HR department is totally incompetent. There are so many IT people running around it is unbelievable. They have initiated multiple computer enhancements with none coming to fruition. Sales and management are extremely well compensated but regular employees have a hard time getting more than a 3% bonus. There are a lot kiss ups and not much diversity. I imagine they try but there are a lot ethnic and racial cliques. The one charity that is sponsored is not very varied and seems just to garner media attention.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time with your underlings. Realize that many of your yes man are basically full of bs.
