    I have been working at Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad Police

    Pros

    Telecommute is great. Decent overall benefits.

    Cons

    Large corporation politics. Outsourcing everything. No longer treating employees as most valuable assets.

    Advice to Management

    Medical benefits have gotten worse - no longer competitive. Quit outsourcing just for showing a quick profit on the books - give employees more chances for retraining/repurposing -don't just say you will then lock it down so they can't transfer to other divisions.

    I have been working at Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad Police

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. You learn how to deal with less than stellar management.

    Cons

    This company dont care about its employees. If you want to advance you better learn how to kiss the backside of the right person or know someone. There are many rules and policies that you just have to figure out the ones to follow because if you follow them all than not much gets done and managment will come down on you hard. One such is the arrival and realse policy at mechanical facilities. If followed it... consritutes excessive dwell and management doesn't know how to actually manage so they insist we lie about when the locomotive actually came in to our facility to decrease dwell so they dont get yelled at.
