    Decent Pay, Good technology, steady work. Lot's of chances for advancement if willing to relocate. People actually doing the work are great to work with and hard working.

    Cons

    Front line supervisors are micro managed causing them to micro manage employees. Every day seems like a witch hunt to find failures of rules. No concern for anyone's personal family life, railroad first ! Unobtainable deadlines and goals.

    Good pay and benefits! Never a fear of checks not posting to bank account or company going bankrupt any time soon.

    If you want a ballance between family life and home life, look somewhere else! Very few employees have a family ballance and are expected to live for their job! Very volatile work environment at times.
