Unfortunately for this company, it has a major disconnect between corporate vision and the men and women on the ground. Most of the corporate officers are understanding and compassionate, and some are just plain evil. This company struggles with many issues, they overwork their management staff, and fail to create steady and predictable schedules for their transportation department employees (re: train service). Overall, this is not a bad industry to work in but finding a good work-life balance in management or train service at this company is impossible. Try BNSF, this company pays its employees well, and honors their contracts, unlike the UPRR that requires that your local union griever become involved to get paid your arbitraries (i.e., working off assignment).
decent healthcare, and good pay.
non-existant scheduling for labor, and long hours for management
