Pros

Pay, benefits, education opportunity, diversity

Cons

If you retired after 2003, the company executives decided to stick our insurance premiums on our backs.
They failed to tell us retiring boomers that once a $15,000 ceiling was crossed (per family) we'd carry the burden of our insurance cost. We were never told this during our retirement seminars. Even those who retired in the summer of 2011 were not told. Our insurance premiums increased by 94% for 2012. This had the effect of wiping out our management pensions. That's the appreciation we received for acheiving the position of management. Forty years as an employee and twenty as management. That's a big thanks. A multi billion dollar industry is just too cheap to help us for five years until we reach medicare age. CSX never adjusted the ceiling they set in 2003, how's that for planning?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think about how youer decisions are going to effect the people who were your loyal employees and did all of your dirty work. What's $1100.00 a month for insurance for someone making six and seven figures plus stock options and huge bonuses?

    If you want respect or time with your family, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Decent pay - health benefits - railroad retirement

    Cons

    Long hours - Time away from family - no respect from management - hassled every time you need a day off - csx believes that the rr is more important than your family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a life and get out of the weeds. Stop hiring fresh college grads for management they just screw everything up. Over my time with csx I have seen hundreds of these idiots come and go. They always come in and think they are "going to "change" things around here", all they do is screw the place up until csx decides to fire them or move them. Start taking your TM's and other management from operating crafts and you will find that things run much more smoothly.
