Deteriorating working standard

There is much concentration and emphasis on paper analysis rather than actual work. Much of the time is wasted on unproductive analysis. Quality of staff being recruited and work allocation, is poor

Management at higher level

Western railway is the organisation in Indian government. Managing fields and office is highly stressful with long working hours specially in emergencies. Its our oath to keep the railways working under any situation. But being in the works department dealing with tender execution, jurisdiction maintenance, encroachments, preparing schedule is management beyond engineering

Pros

Public dealing and managerial skills are improvised

Cons

Long working hours with 5 to 6 hrs non stop working causes potential health tgreats

Informative

As an Intern, I was allowed to wear casual clothes. We were given intensive training of each department such as its functions and responsibilities. We were given an overview of how railway traffic was managed using wireless communications.

Big Platform to learn

It is a government organization and one of the largest in the world. You can work in any department in Indian Railways. But here no one will teach you, because no one is bothered all are government employees they don't even bother to know you. But if you will learn from yourself then you can work anywhere. Their operations, their management and everything is worth learning.

Job security and balanced work culture

It is a good platform to know about people, their requirements and their reactions to changes. It helps to know the market and culture. This organistation help to know how to manage funds to meet business and social requirements of a organisation. I learned to manage time and take decision during crisis condition, also to communicate with people and get things done from them

Pros

Work in broader terms

Cons

Too much incompetence and inactive work environment

Work place

Good homely atmosphere. I did excellent job to maintain the train services for the public. And in turn by giving service to common people, I felt like giving service to humanity and also to god. It was like worshiping my god who is omnipresent and also satisfied with my job. I am highly delighted and graceful to western railways to give such nice opportunity to serve the nation.

Pros

everything is fine

Cons

no complaints.

Most punctual railway.

All the officials are very much serious about train punctuality.All the technical staff are well trained.World class training institutes like IRISET are available.Staff welfare is some what neglected.Talent is not appreciated.The job of signal engineer is very challenging and enjoyable.Worst thing is we are bounded for twenty four hours ,signal failure may happen at any time we have to attend it promptly without any delay.

Pros

free travelling facility.

Cons

no social life
