Pros

-Well respected company
-Great retirement benefits and healthcare benefits for the non-unionized employees
-Plenty of opportunities to work in different departments
-If you work at corporate, you're pretty much guaranteed to have a stable 8-5 workday

Cons

-There was a running joke that the company is 99% male. The nature of the railroad industry tends not be as friendly towards women.

-Because there's a history of promoting from within, some positions are not staffed with the best possible person for the job.

Advice to Management

Managers need to become more comfortable with firing employees who are not up to parr.
