    StarStarStarStarStar Current Computer Programmer in Atlanta, Georgia

    Retirement benefits are AMAZING! 401K matching 100% up to 1 percent, 50% up to 6 percent. Health insurance is ok, but nothing to write home about.

    Overall benefits are good. 401 contribution match is pretty sad compared to other companies.

    Good compensation. Best pension & retirement packages there are, if you can make it.

    - benefits are great health insurance cover everything and you only pay less than 20$ a month, they are match you 401K and if you stay longer than 25 yrs with then can retire with over 100% of your current salary, also due to the nature of the business they offer life insurance - Overall great benefits

    The benefits continue to get worse each year I worked there. You are forced to join a union which has no power. The company does whatever it wants regardless of union contracts. The company plays favorites and goes after employees who do not kiss up to management.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Portsmouth, Ohio

    You get 401 a year after you hire in and insurance benefits start the following month that you hire in. The retirement is the best available and you need 5 years to be vested.

    None they provide a very nice benifit package

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Assistant Trainmaster in Norfolk, Virginia

    You pay into Railroad Retirement and not Social Security. 401K opportunity. Health insurance is awful. Pay out of pocket roughly $4500.00 each year before Insurance covers 80%.

    Excellent benefits management is horrible
