    Great company, great benefits, must have a good attitude and extraordinary work ethic.

    I have been working at Florida East Coast Railway (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, retirement, personal growth, opportunity. Not a large corporation, so you get to know everyone you work with...it feels like a family.

    Cons

    Wearing multiple hats for one job title can lead to long hours; training can be lacking, so you need to be pretty self-sufficient.

    I worked at Florida East Coast Railway full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good amount of time off, pretty casual, most people pretty decent to work with, good job security and they train you

    Cons

    Top level executives have huge tempers and it rolls downhill. Got to have a pretty thick skin to work with them.

    Long hours, old dispatch software, few Qualcomms installed, heavy phone and email traffic, work you into the ground.

    Pros

    Lots of business, very busy, high volume, solid company.

    Cons

    Management is mostly Latin and biased, low pay for amount of hours expected on job, very little room for advancement,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop speaking Spanish in the office in front of English speaking only employees, give raises and annual reviews, clarify goals and objectives instead of fox hole huddles.

    I worked at Florida East Coast Railway full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    When I started in 1971, it was more of a family organization. I felt like FEC was a big part of my family and I miss my family!.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons as to a reason not to work for FEC

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! You have some wonderful people that work there.
