    I have been working at GATX full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good employee retention and favorable total compensation. In general employees act as good teammates and the business is efficiently run.

    Cons

    Lack of growth and new opportunities. Very risk adverse and many times backwards and stubborn in its approach. the company is comfortable and good at what it does, but has trouble with new ideas and expansion.

    I have been working at GATX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible to workers needs. The bonuses are fair to the point they pay out at a rate equivalent to their expected earnings. If they do 115% of their quota, they pay out 115% of your expected bonus! Great benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    The job is very "old school" shouting and arguing is not uncommon. Refusal by most to move into the 21st century, both technological and mentality. The pay is alright, not so bad to complain but not the best either. Nothing is more important than "time on car" you will get yelled at for working "overhead" then get yelled at because the "overhead" is not getting done, I imagine they expect a person to stay after their work day and on their own time perform the over head of the shop no charge to the customer or company. If you can't weld, you are looked down upon as a lesser employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, some may be disgruntled on a daily basis because they dislike the daily grind, others may be disgruntled with a root reason that you can solve.
