Teamwork- The core business of Railways is to run the Train. The train operation needs high level of Team Work of many departments. As myself belonged to Operating Department, I had to harness services of other departments and this could be only possible of good coordination and better rapport with the Teammates.
Training- No Railway man could be allowed to work independently without proper training both at Training Institute and at Field. Railways have their own Training Institutes of Different Departments separately for Officers and Staff. These Training Institutes are of better standards . One such institute at Vadodara is no less than a Premier Management Institute. Job Security- As it is the Central Govt. Organization, Job is fully secured. Career Growth- There is time bound promotion and also Assured Career progress. Salary is as per 7th CPC. Pass facilities are for travel . Innovation in Railways is always taking place. Work environment is conducive.

Dislikes

I didn't dislike Railway job. It is challenging and designed to serve the Public. Yes some times dislikes rushed in on account of obstructions in working staged by rowdy mob instigated by Politicians for no fault of Railway and high work pressure. But those were short lived. Later on I derived great satisfaction on successful handling of the issue.

Work

My job was challenging because I belonged to Operations Department which is the core sector . Tremendous job satisfaction was there, because always immediate decision making involved in my job. Public dealing is another aspect. I had dealt successfully.

indian Railways being the largest government organisation, career growth for group 'c' employees depends on individual performance. individual should strive continuously to improve and get excellent APRs (annual appraisal reports) for career progression. The Boss should consider you as indispensable. Not to expect much help or guidance from teammate. Routine training is available through various centers. Very good for those who love travelling. Any innovative ideas are difficult to implement since the Organisation strictly follows the rule book and is generally not encouraged. This is good for those desirous of work-life balance and all facilities are available and salary is very good especially for white collared personnel.

Dislikes

As this is a Government Organisation, the monotony in the working system exists.New innovative ideas are not given credence due to various factors in the system.

Work

As head the finance department enjoyed working with various departments, feel very satisfied when our point of view is accepted resulting in huge savings to the organisation. Improves tremendous knowledge by associating with ongoing major works.

It protects our national intigrity.. serves people. give life to nation major source of employment , and second most disciplined department after our forces. most intrestingly in each capacity you work in railways you plays an important role or vital role even the work of gangman or gateman is so importent that most of the safety lies with them.... but now i feel after a long period i served.... much more work to improve work culture.. improvement the effeciency of railway persons improvement of moral of its work.. decentrlizatiion of powers at division leval .. and abide its officers / executers more responsable a d work oriented.. such a leadership is required at officers / executers leval that could creat an environment like a movement of progress of the orgnization and nation

Its a planning work regarding provision of traffic facility infrastructure in the Railways​ and with us cooperate the planning inspectors of other department of Railways i.e Engg, TRD, Signalling, Electrical General & Mechanical in providing estimates of the work. First survey is done whether work is feasible​ & beneficial to the Railways, then sketch is made, work justified & proposed.After it is sanctio ed, it is constructed. The progress of work is reviewed in weekly & monthly meetings of branch officers. It is really enjoyable as Sundays are free. Six days working. Respectable package, 03 free all india passes alongwith good medical facilities.

Dislikes

The bad thing is that during festival​s often restriction on leaves are imposed by higher authorities which is highly embarrassing and irks a lot.

Work

The work is challenging and difficult but it is useful as one can easily get a good job as consultant rly manager in RITES& other reputed companies dealing with Rlys on a good package during service or even after retirement.

It's the most critical job
You can't get leave
When u r posted at some stations u don't have time to eat
Railways never take care about you
Many interior places many employees can't get enough quarters check through RTI
Rules says incase of any system failure u have to make many procedures
But superiors says first pass the train
Many of our tracks don't permit this much traffic of this much load in case any derailment you r the first victim
Railways dnt follow HOER hours of employment regulations
Many railway employees don't live until 60 years check thru RTI
FOR every 3 years u get transfer many of them are interior places railways even don't provide drinking water u can check

Job security is the main advantage

Dislikes

As an civil engineer it is difficult to learn and development of skill is a mirage. No promotions and career growth can be expected even after 20 to 30 years of service especially in civil engineering department for Group C employees. Work distribution and duties are not specific and one have to do another persons work and as other person denies to do the work. Cooperation from the co workers cannot be expected. Quality can not be given first priority in civil dept of railways. No provision and permission will be given higher studies for the Group C employees.

Work

Inspection ,maintenance and construction of steel bridges, PSC bridges , foot over bridges and steel structures. Routine job and no identity in this job.

Indian Railway is a transportation organization. It is one of the biggest employer. People from different states,religion,caste and culture work together in harmony with same goal. After 6th pay commission salary and different allowances are excellent. Every Railwayman has defined job and responsibilities and he is accountable for that. Regular training of staff is a routine affairs. Railway is very much concerned about the welfare of staff and their families. I feel proud and privileged myself for serving Railway for more than 30 years.

Dislikes

The job is transferable.

Work

As a Medical Officer in Railway my work was stressful. l have performed both professional and managerial work.
