    Confession

    a 

    Consultant

    Currently on an Amtrak in the quiet car (supposed to be library quiet and if complaints are made about a passenger, they are relocated). A woman chose to sit in this car with her incredibly noisy toddler when there are seats available in other cars. Woman keeps shushing her kid but isn’t putting any other effort into controlling or quieting them. AITA if I complain to the conductor?

      Great strategy---poor execution!

      Pros

      Great benefits, Employees have great expertise within operations that are passionate about rail, great vision for the future

      Cons

      While they have a great vision, they can't execute on the vision. They can't think outside of the box and think that with more money they can keep doing the same thing and get different results. Poor culture-- their culture and core values are not what is displayed in the behaviors of many senior leaders or employees. Lack of resources (technology, people, funding)-- this makes it difficult to execute and causes delays in getting anything done.
