No opinion of CEO

Pros

The money is not to bad nor are the benefits. You are contributing to railroad retirement and not in social security.

Cons

You are always on the road or rails in this case away from home. If you are not a family guy then this may be the job for you.

Advice to Management

Get out and chat with your employees every now and then. While working for the railroad you hardly ever see any management until things go wrong.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -High level of competence among coworkers
    -Friendly, approachable people
    -Challenging, stimulating work
    -Easy communication with senior management
    -Nice facilities
    -Focus on development. Extensive, helpful training courses.

    Cons

    -Limited cons, really
    There is some pressure, at least in my department, to work longer hours. Leaving before 5pm is almost unheard of, and many are in the office past seven o'clock.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good communication of company goals and the frequent interaction with employees. Overall, I think the management does a very good job.

    -Depending on where you start with the company, your opportunities for advancement may be stifled becuase of the flat structure of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure middle managers enforce the initiatives that are handed down to them
