    Pros

    Hire in with little experience, learn the railroad in and out, get to know all KCS's customers. Advancement Opportunities for all.

    Cons

    I have not had a con yet. Management Benefits are not as good a Union Employee's. Can be challenging if you do not want learn or push yourself to learn more.

    I worked at Kansas City Southern Railway

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent workload if you work for the right manager.

    Cons

    Not progessive or open to new ideas
    Promotions based on politics and not performance
    Frequent changes in management
    Performance evaluations are a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your company needs to become much more progressive and open to new ideas in addition to showing respect for a job well done and not how many hours you spend in the office.
