I worked at Kansas City Southern Railway full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great Salary. Great Benefits. Union. Offers great money for only a High School diploma or GED.

Cons

Demanding lifestyle. Little time for family or hobbies. Aggressive management. Dishonest practices. Failure to live up to collective bargaining agreements. Treat employees as disposable. Selectively enforce rules and policies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Comply with collective bargaining and live up to agreements. Focus less on the absolute bottom line so that you can foster a work environment that can breed enthusiasm and cooperation instead of contempt and distrust.

    Pros

    Compensation is favorable and advancement is available to anyone willing to put in the time and effort.

    Cons

    The small company struggles with process management from operations to corporate head quarters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push professionalisim from Transportation General Managers to Assistant Trainmasters. It exists in our corporate office but stops at the door.

    Pros

    Hire in with little experience, learn the railroad in and out, get to know all KCS's customers. Advancement Opportunities for all.

    Cons

    I have not had a con yet. Management Benefits are not as good a Union Employee's. Can be challenging if you do not want learn or push yourself to learn more.
