Pros

Work life balance is great at Railinc and the work is meaningful. Dealing with a real world component and not just commercial web sites,etc lends a lot of meaning to an IT career which can be filled with failed startups and less than socially redeemable purposes.

Cons

The company is largely locked into Java which precludes the usage of some newer, better languages. There's also a lot of legacy mainframe code which is now being moved to Java.

    Ambiguous employee culture with glossy up front management hype

    Pros

    Great facilities, on-site gym, great low cost insurance benefits, they really hire the best technical professionals, employee culture is good if you are in the right department with the right manager and management team, they encourage community involvement and charitable sponsorship and encourage continuing education.

    Cons

    Very limited upward mobility into management, they really only promote customer support staff to technical positions and the few management positions that open up are generally hired from external candidates and most times at least with the commercial services group, you have new managers trying to tell you how to do your job when they don't understand your job or know how to do their own job; employee culture appears great, but the longer you work there you realize that the really talented people they hired are not allowed to use the talent they were hired for due to some overly confident and bullish type employees that are not open to any competition to their own project ideas. When review times roll around those inexperienced managers will alarm you with all kinds of things you never knew existed because they don't know how to communicate to their team members on a one on one level on a routine basis. Don't even attempt to question your manager and try to work things out to an amicable solution, it is a losing battle. Problem, bullying and harassing employees are tolerated to the point of exacerbation of the good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote managers from within and send your mid-level managers to management 101 classes. They don't know how to treat their employees, handle problem employees, communicate appropriately any areas of concerns they may have in a timely manner and generally don't understand the performance review process and how important it is to their staff.
