    I have been working at CSX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love my work at CSX. The work in the IT department is both challenging and rewarding. I have the opportunity to work on projects in other departments and in other areas of IT. I also really enjoy the people I work with, which makes a huge difference for me. The company shows in many ways that it is concerned about me, my family, and the community. That's important to me and it's something that I can stand behind.

    Cons

    There are plenty of jobs that I'm interested in, but most of them are in Jacksonville, FL. While I'm fine with living in Jacksonville, the opportunities to relocate are not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduce paternity leave so that good employees can also be good fathers.

    Pros

    For management employees, there are many opportunities to develop self and move up/around due to retiring workforce. Flexible schedule as long as you get your work done. Great benefits/pay.

    Cons

    "Corporate" culture. Company is slowly moving toward being more creative/innovative in ways we solve problems and improve performance, but not there yet...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some areas need more work/life balance. Promote/reward innovative approaches and culture-shift.
