    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Canadian National Railway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    apprentice program was real good, working there you met so many people within CN and outside railways where you could gain knowledge....the company always listened to any complaints I had and resolved them,....

    Cons

    so many negative people...what I found the negative people always did as little as possible and were great union supporters.....

    Advice to Management

    when somebody is promoted give them the skills they need for there job...and treat people under you the same way you liker to be treated

    6) Great team, lots of knowledge, lots of help when needed
    7) SAFETY....ONLY COMPANY I HAVE EVER WORKED FOR WHERE THEY PREACH SAFETY AND BACK IT UP
    8) Those who continually mess up and put others in danger are held accountable

    Cons

    on call 24 / 7, long days (up to 18 hrs on a train)

    bunch of 50+ people who hired on in high school, never worked a hard job in their life and all they do is cry about the work. Place would be much better if 25% of the work force retired tomorrow and wouldn't have to deal with all the cry babies. I can't believe there are people with a grade 10 education who make 120 thousand dollars a year who cry that they don't make enough or that they have to wake up at 2 am to make that kind of cash.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in line with the CEO's vision, his customer centric approach is begining to take shape and the proof is in the pudding. The customers are getting better service, we are servicing them more efficiently, and starting to change the culture to that of a positive outlook.
