    Former Employee - Supervisor Revenue Accounting in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Norfolk Southern full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable industry. Didn't worry about losing job during recession.

    Cons

    CEO stated that "legacy" employees get consideration - meaning, if your daddy works for the company you will get promoted. Good luck if you don't have a relative pulling strings for you.

    Does not value quality education, would prefer to promote people that could not get paid the same at other companies due to lack of higher education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow relatives of management to work for the company
