GATX is OK

Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsI 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.

ConsOpportunites 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 Senior ManagementSpend time with your underlings. Realize that many of your yes man are basically full of bs.

    stable and stagnant organization

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at GATX full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Stable organization. If your goal is to find a "job" and make a decent living, this organization… Cons: Stagnant organization. You will not be technically nor academically challenged. For the most part, you do the same thing over and over again.… Advice to Senior Management: Where is the growth on this organization? Please review your own… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
