I have been working at Norfolk Southern

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 ManagementAdvice

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