What people say about working at BNSF Railway

  • Decent company

    long days, good pay. Work life balance is swayed in the wrong direction right now. It has been a great company to work for as it pays well for what you do.

    Chicago, IL - November 17, 2017
  • Benefits outweigh cons

    Over all a good place to work. Lower management is young and fairly inexperienced, which can lead to some frustration. Communication within management, and between management and crafts is lacking.
