I have been working at Norfolk Southern full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

NS has a lot to offer: great pay, stability, unparalleled benefits and a PENSION. They haven't laid off a manager in ages and there are plenty of options within the company in terms of career choice.

Cons

Zero communication on the operations department. And be prepared to deal with tyrannical bosses, constant relocation, having no social life, and in some regions, a powerful, unyielding union.

Advice to Management

You MUST communicate more.
