    I have been working at Norfolk Southern as a contractor for more than 3 years


    Great railroad culture, wonderful mix of old and new, safety focus, railroad retirement benefits.


    Pay slightly lower than other companies. Lots of older systems , some silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep bringing in new talent to work with the experienced "old hands".
