Train Crew (Former Employee), Western US – December 4, 2014
Pros: pays well, not too hard to get on in some places and get a license
Cons: lax safety practices, not following their own rules, severe favoritism
Lots of turnover where I worked. The better the employee the more likely they're looking elsewhere. Not a place for the safety-conscious pro. They think like shortliners, not Class 1's. Little railroad – more... syndrome.
Normally one could blame it on a bad client, but their rep in train service precedes them in other locations, it's the corporate culture of their Transit arm. Other fields might be better. – less

Field Supervisor - Western Ballast Operations (Current Employee), Saint Joseph, MO – September 17, 2013
Pros: great pay and benefits.
Working for Herzog is a great experience. I have traveled the Western side of the country. I have learned to supervise and manage all employees on the Western Division for the Ballast Train Division. Upper – more... Management and co-workers for Herzog work well together on progress of Employees, Projects and Outcomes. The hardest part of working for Herzog is traveling and being away from family for weeks at a time. The most enjoyable part of working for Herzog is the employees I work with and the satisfaction of projects unfold and be completed. Herzog cares for their employees and family. They provide a good Health Insurance plan and benefits. – less
