    Pros

    Regular opportunities for growth and expanding your knowledge base. Recognition and reward for producing results. Promotes innovation and provides an environment that supports new ideas.

    Cons

    Demanding goals that sometime come with challenging deadlines - don't assume a 40 work week. Recent headcount reductions means everyone is trying to do more with less support. Future forecast call for additional cuts to drive down costs.

    Pros

    Trains are fun! Insurance is decent.

    Cons

    Incompetent and entry-level managers who don't really know the rules but think they know all about railroading. Dangerous because everyone on the ground is exhausted all the time! Corners cut all over the place at the expense of those at the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, especially the lowest of the low. Hire your managers after a long time in the field instead of hiring off the street. Employees and managers should work together, not against each other. Workers are humans, treat us accordingly.
