    I have been working at CSX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CSX's new executive team has improved the company's operating ratio significantly, thus causing a huge uptick in CSX's stock price. So, if you own their stock...you are happy. Lol. Also, Jim Foote may be the company's next CEO. If that happens, that's a positive thing, because he is more employee-focused than Hunter Harrison.

    Cons

    Fear-based environment. No job security. A bully for a CEO who appears to only care about himself and Wall Street investors - not people.

    Advice to Management

    With the hostile take-over in March, 2018, everything great about this company has been changed. It went from being a fun, collaborative environment where people felt respected, to a competitive environment that is cut-throat. The people aren't bad people...they are just scared for their jobs. And because CSX has traditionally offered a great retirement package, people who have been with the company 15+ years feel like they have "golden handcuffs" - because they can't leave without walking away from their nest egg. It really is sad to see the transformation for the worse.
