    I have been working at CSX full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay, benefits and retirement are good.

    Cons

    On call 24/7/365 and no social or family life. Management is always intimidating and threatening your job. I would NOT advise anyone to go to work for this company. Hunter Harrison has destroyed a good place to work.

    I worked at CSX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers were intelligent, diverse, hard-working. We respected each other’s strengths and readily helped each other with tasks and projects. The company culture focused a lot on employee safety, which made me feel valued and also accountable to those I worked with.

    Cons

    So much to do, staying late often felt necessary to be able to keep up. Might say more about my personality than the company, since only one other person on my team did this as much as I did.
