    I worked at GATX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is fair and comparable to what you would find elsewhere. Benefits and retirement plans are generally excellent. Employee culture is generally friendly and relaxed.

    Cons

    Very little promotion from within. No real mechanisms seem to exist at the company to move from a lower position into management. Almost all senior hiring seems to come from outside companies and often outside industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more middle management positions to allow employees to gain managerial experience within the company. Refrain from bringing in managers from outside industries who don't understand the particular challenges that come with GATX's industry.

    Pros

    Very good benefits and stable company.

    Cons

    Many people have been in their position for a significant period of time. Some old-school management styles (i.e. yelling, screaming, belittling). Could use better diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep things fresher, listen to the people and nip issues in the bud instead of letting them fester.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
