Pros

The benefits were great and far more than comparable positions in industry. Also, compensation was very comfortable. Very structured format and work was cut out for you.

Cons

The workplace environment was very banal and did not support open feedback and communication. Hierarchical structure of the positions made it a very intimidating environment.

Advice to Management

Upper management should allow feedback from employees. Also, work environment is unnecessarily strict as far as dress code and appearance.

    Pros

    Very strong company financially. Consistently challenging from day to day. The senior management is the best business minds in the country as far as running a railroad.

    Cons

    Railroad operations run 24/7/365 and need employees to do it. Most operational jobs with NS are nontraditional hours so any prospective employee should be aware of this.

    Advice to Management

    Since the non-management positions are union, the one of the most difficult position is a junior manager. You will be the work horse, but suck it up. If you perform, you won't be in that position long.

    Pros

    The people within the company are wonderful to work with. The working conditions are overall very good as well as the benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes it may seem that if you're not in 'the clique' then you're not in; you need to be in to be recognized or considered for advancement. There are a lot of politics played and you may have to learn how to play them just to get along.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and continue to have an open mind as to what they have to say. Change is inevitable if we are to continue to be a successful transportation company.
