    The Politics and Brown nosing. Promoted the wrong people. The wrong people were let go. They eventually fired that Vice President, but the damage was already done.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at National Railway Equipment Co.

    Pros

    Good small family owned operation. Working in an "office" position made you feel as if you mattered vs some bigger companies that don't present such opportunities. Also was able to learn various task because of lack of resources.

    Cons

    Management at least from Engineering side was awful. Extremely unprofessional, countless opportunities given to some that just don't deserve it over and over again. No viable structure was ever set in place. A lot over here and then over there type of work. No project ever seemed to get 100% done. The amount of money wasted on rework and revisions from a quality stand point would boggle ones mind.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at National Railway Equipment Co. full-time

    Pros

    It is a small company and family owned, so the work atmosphere is one where the employees may be hired for one position, but they end up doing many functions. This is a good place to learn all aspects and areas of responsibility.

    Cons

    Although there are people with management titles, the CEO bowed down to whoever is the bigger liar, so people are fearful of losing their jobs. Consequently, management is more concerned about protecting their jobs than their employees.

    I have been working at National Railway Equipment Co.

    Pros

    There just isn't a lot of pros to give for the Mt Vernon,IL plant, except if your buddy buddy, know someone high up in the plant, or a suck up with senior management, your job is safe.

    Cons

    There are lots of cons, poor work conditions (surprised OSHA has not shut them down or investigated them), wages are substandard when compared to similar tasks at other companies, the Union is a complete joke and does not stand behind the workers, disrespectful supervisors towards employees causes morale to drop.
