Satisfactory experience with Norfolk Southern.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

The salary is competitive and great benefits. Retiring with Norfolk Southern is a breeze. Your spouse will receive retirement benefits up to 50% of what you receive as a retired employee.

Cons

The company is powerful and knows it. The entire recruitment process takes a long time (3-4 months) so it is tough to tell if you are still on their radar.

    I have been working at Norfolk Southern full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, rewarding in some cases, and a decent amount of training opportunities. There are decent salaries if you are in the right "track". There is opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Long hours, very little compensation for the amount of time worked, and recognition isn't structured. In other words, hard work doesn't necessarily get rewarded as quickly as it should. The company still operates under the "who you know" more than it should.

    Advice to Management

    Improve at identifying talent. It should be what you know and what you do, not who you know. Provide more feedback for those who apply for jobs and are turned down.
