    I have been working at BNSF Railway full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay and loads of job security for managers. There is plenty of opportunity for those willing to work hard enough to earn it.

    Cons

    Generally requires multiple relocations to get to senior positions. The railroad runs 24/7/365 so in field operations you are going to have to sacrifice some quality of life.

    I worked at BNSF Railway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    company stability
    benefits package
    very little micromanaging

    Cons

    opportunities are tied to your salary band, and double salary band jumps are rare. depending on department (I was in sourcing), promotions are also rare. the hierarchical cultue is very difficult to overcome and is not progressive. BNSF has a bad habit of underhiring people. The company is very operations-centric, so you (with an MBA or JD, and 5-10 years business experience) could be hired in 3-4 salary bands lower than someone without a degree, but who came from the field.
