Pros

It used to be a very well run company, Godd heatlh insurance, other good benfits, seniot mgmtm communicated with all employees about business

Cons

In th epast 2 years since senior managers retired, the new mgmt and senior executives make bad decesions and never inform others what they are trying to do. They have the wrong leadership running the overall operations, they think it can be run off a spreadsheet and don't know what it takes to actually make railroad trackwork. Common sense does not enter into most decesions they make.

Advice to Management

When you cut too many employees, it is hard to produce any product, try to be around when the economy rebounds.
