New work culture at all

If we talk about job security,Job secured for railway catering employees. But we are hired for contract basis ,So I cant say job is not secure.Its nice work place for people who loves to visit new places at every morning. Sometimes we need to go from one corner to another end of the country. So if you love to travel and know new environment and culture than join Indian railways.

Pros

Higher proportion of the staff are unproductive and no zeal to accomplish their responsibilities qualitaivelyheir responsi

Indian Railways forgot to adopt the contemporary management systems in all its functionality, whether it is operations, finances or quality. If I am right since 1990 there has been lots of management theories professed and practiced by the corporate sector throughout the world successfully. But as I see, Indian Railways missed that note in total. A typical day work is stereo typed and without variation over three or four decades. Management is not dynamic or innovative and simple monotony. Workplace culture is slackness among majority of staff and no zeal. The hardest part is few people strive to run the show. Most enjoyable part of the job is system is running normally.

Challenging at the same time enjoyable

Since working in Railways as a front line staff engaged in train operations it was full of activity , round the clock - 24x 7, for all 365 days in a year -an unique experience which can not be obtained anywhere else. It will provide you immense satisfaction because by working in transportation industry you are contributing in connecting the nation through moving the wheels of nation.

Pros

Job security, excellent work environment

Cons

performing night duty will be difficult in the initial days

Good place for work and life balance

IRCTC is a good place for those who want to increase education and they can manage both job and studies. But they will not pay you as per the market rate.
