Pros

Business is strong, market fluctuations have less overall effect on operations. NS is well diversified in it's traffic base. There are no worries of job loss. NS requires HIGH level of integrity. You can count on the word of the people you work with. For someone with my background and education, NS provides opportunities that cannot be found elsewhere. They promote both from within and without, looking for competent leaders and managers, pedigrees and connections will not help you if you are unable to advance the business. Lastly NS provides above average compensation

Cons

Union shop, long hours, unions, very young front line supervisory staff

Advice to Management

We're on the right track, keep supporting those in the field. Swift and decisive action against those with integrity issues is appreciated

    I worked at Norfolk Southern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Norfolk southern pays pretty well for a Corporate internship. If you go full time, you don't have to worry about losing your job if your in corporate . Because they have never laid off and it is kinda of hard to get fired.

    Cons

    Advancement will be slow in this company if you join. You pretty much know exactly were you will be in 20 years, no matter really what you do. If you like a stable high paying job with great benefits this is for you. But if you are a risk-reward kind of person, not so much.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some CapEX on your computer systems because they are so outdated.
