    Cons

    None that I can think of at this time. Perks have been great so no cons at this time. Na

    Pros

    Solid company with bright and talented people at the helm. Good benefits (though they are slowly getting worse).

    Cons

    Good benefits and working conditions go a long way, but pay is "just OK".

    Advice to Management

    The company is growing rapidly, which is great, but you can feel the traditional G&W culture slipping away, which is not great. Find a way to maintain the culture and feel that has given this company its great success. We're counting on you.

    I have been working at Genesee & Wyoming full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pretty Good work life balance, decent pay and hours, mediocre advancement opportunities unless willing to move anywhere on the country.

    Cons

    Some upper management personality issues and organizational issues. Also, technology is not a selling point for this company as it is fairly behind the curve in relation to other companies this size.

    Pros

    Many responsibilities and opportunities to gain leadership qualities
    Competitive Pay & Benefits
    Overall Positive Company Culture and Safety Culture

    Cons

    Quality of Life is quickly deteriorating

    Advice to Management

    Find a wayto retain front line managers by making job work load and expectations more realistic. Operations Managers are on call 24-7 but many do not have any time off and the amount of hours spend working does not justify the employee value proposition
