    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at CN full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This job has allowed me to live financially well. There is a lot of room for growth as well.

    Cons

    It is extremely hard to have a family life with the long hours and overnight stays. Management isn’t as focused about Leading as they are Managing.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to get to know their employees better. If they allow themselves into others lives, they may understand what works and what doesn’t amongst us that are moving freight.

    I worked at CN

    Pros

    Deep pockets. That's all.

    Cons

    From an IT perspective, they really don't know what they're doing. They're quick to hire, but then don't use the resources they hire efficiently (or at all.)

    Advice to Management

    Out-source ALL your IT work -- ALL of it. You don't know what you're doing.
