I have been working at Norfolk Southern Railway

Pros

Pay is average for work performed. Slightly above average for area. Other employees (non management) are great to work with.

Cons

Too many managers, not enough employees. Bad contracts offered to labor. Poorly maintained equipment. Often dirty hot in summer cold in winter working conditions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get in touch with workforce, and I don't mean talking to the same "yes men" selected. Sneak around and watch "your" supervisors in action. Get out and ride a heavy mixed freight train unannounced. Where no one knows that you are there except the actual crew you are with. You would be amazed at what you can learn. Everything is said to be done for the stockholders. Well, I'm a stockholder and I don't like what you are doing to my "MY company"!

    Pros

    The benefits are among the best in the market. Provided you retire with the company, railroad retirement and pension benefits are really tops.

    Cons

    This is an old company. Everything is old - even the way that management thinks about things.
