    I worked at CSX full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Nice Bonus structure and benefits, decent work/life balance.

    Head needs to be on a swivel, letting a lot of talent go for employees right out of college, upper management worried about their own job and will sacrifice front line managers to make OE goals.
