    I worked at BNSF Railway (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training, coworkers, and ability to travel. Answer your phone and let them fill your pockets up with money.

    Cons

    On call 24/7, 365, low seniority for the first 3-5 years, will bounce from job to job, in the elements, its a struggle to take days off.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more flexibility to the low seniority numbers in regards to being forced and bumped off jobs.

    I worked at BNSF Railway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large company with potential for upward movement

    Cons

    Most positions don't offer a work life balance, it's a 24-7 operation so it's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time growing your people, not just off-loading tasks and calling it development.
