For a Engineering Diploma holder joining Railways as Junior Engineer is the best Job with maximum remuneration.
Periodical training is given. Good carrier growth. Pay package is very good as with pay, Quarters is given or house rent allowance is given, assured three promotions in the carrier if not able to get into next grade pay package of the next grade is given on completion every 10 years. No political interference at middle level management. Inovotion if anyone brings it is encouraged.
For Engineering officials at middle level management its not so good especially for Junior Engineers and Senior Engineers. Have to ignore the family for being successful in carrier. Have to get work done with lot of absentees and disobedient staff. Have to face the wrath of unions when any one tries to descipline the staff.
Officers at higher level rarely support the middle level managers (Engineers) in the name of maintaining peaceful industrial relations.
Officers at higher level rarely support the middle level (managers) engineers when they are attacked by union sponsored workers by way of abusing using filthy languages, sticking posters on individuals name with objectionable contents and at times manhandling.
Sometimes higher level officers change the decisions arrived by the predecessor for no valid reasons..
And some times in personal matters like transfer / relieving the employee, gets materialised only on the intervention of the Unions. Dicipilinary actions are reverted when unions intervene.
Working is always hectic with little or no rest. Often excitable when work completed.
