    I have been working at Indian Railways full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    One of the biggest Govt. organisation in the World. The lifeline for all kind of transportation. Most particularly, can serve for maximum no of people of India.

    Cons

    Like other govt. organisation capabilities of Non-gazetted staff are not recognized but fruit is relished by the Gazetted Section. Modernization process is a bit slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Computerization & modernization may be given top priority. Promotional avenue may be revised from mere seniority and bookish competency to competency in terms of job assigned to a staff whether non-gazetted or gazetted. Must look for more revenue earnings to serve the people better without putting pressure to their pocket in terms of TAX.
