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.

Dislikes

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.

Work

Working is always hectic with little or no rest. Often excitable when work completed.

It's a good teamwork. Gives lot of work experience both individually and collectively. I happened to work in three different departments and gained a thorough knowledge of my working which enabled me to manage a large work force.

Dislikes

The dislike part i came across is many of the officers are non intelligent and fit to perform their duties. However, they manage through their work force, who are more intelligent and wiser than the officers.

Work

I joined southern railway as a typist and ended up as a private secretary. I enjoyed my entire service of 36 years in the railways very sincerely and dedication.

In any organisation apart from the reputation of that particular firm individuals has got a roll for improoving the work culture.

Dislikes

Since Indian Railway is the biggiest workforce in India it has got certain limitation in renumeration.Another thing due to union interference and its political support the sub ordinate staff who are the real work extracting officials are put under heavy pressure.More the policy decisions are ploitically motivated rather than need based/technical .

Work

As far as a technical supervisor work is challanging especially in Railway workshops where he is facing daily new problems.
