    I worked at CN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great workplace with awesome people. Lots to do everyday, plenty going on to keep busy and improve. A high quality product was expected, and CN did a great job of hiring well rounded people. If you didn't perform after ~1 year, you would be let go with a reasonable compensation package. I witnessed a round of these layoffs and it was impressive to see a company actually value and respond to middle management regarding employee performance and expectations. All employees were well aware of who was under-performing. Too often these employees are kept around as 'dead weight.' CN, however, did not keep them around and it meant your colleagues are high quality as a result. Slightly above average compensation for the industry.

    Cons

    Expected increases in responsibility without discussing salary increases concurrently.

    Advice to Management

    It is inappropriate to ask for people to volunteer to do extra tasks/work without having an open dialog about how these extra responsibilities translate to compensation.
