Pros

Decent pay, decent workload if you work for the right manager.

Cons

Not progessive or open to new ideas
Promotions based on politics and not performance
Frequent changes in management
Performance evaluations are a joke

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your company needs to become much more progressive and open to new ideas in addition to showing respect for a job well done and not how many hours you spend in the office.

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    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.
