Approves of CEO

I worked at Rail Europe full-time

Pros

Pay is great, so are the benefits. Monthly incentives can be huge. You're surrounded by a great group of co-workers. The product is very interesting. Good training and support from higher ups. You can work as much overtime as you want during high season, so earning potential is unlimited.

Cons

There is a lot to learn and it can seem overwhelming. High season can be very stressful. You will have to work a few weekend days a month. There isn't a lot of room for advancement.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    This is an international company so employees are coming from all over the world, however executives are mainly from Europe. People at all levels are friendly and easy-going. Some employees have been with Rail Europe Inc for 20 years(?)and the turn over seems very low.
    They make most of their money on the internet and teams working for this channel seem to be pampered and get more recognition than others. Salaries are fair with a good health package and decent vacation time. You also get some free travel in Europe which is really nice.

    Cons

    The company HQ seems top heavy. there are a lot of managers with important titles and they are always in meetings but rarely in the cubicles. Lots of business processes that will drag you down.
    Call center is not staffed adequately and level of customer support is very low in high season.

    Advice to Management

    Do not replace leadership by processes. Cut the fat in the executive team and hire more call center agents to take care of business.
