      I was a Trainmaster for two years.

      Pros

      The benefits were outstanding. If someone had to work their entire career in the operations portion of CSX, the retirement package is good. They will teach you the basics of a job prior to sending you to the field. Continuity is not a popular word in my opinion because with knowledge comes power and too many people feel the need to hold that power in order to maintain validity.

      Cons

      The hours and days are ridiculous. The turnover for both internal and external managers is a testament to how bad lower management is treated. If CSX could keep managers and actually properly staff a location I think this would resolve the long hours issue.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Pay is good for the area, so if you want to work in Jacksonville then it's the best option. -If you are reasonably intelligent, motivated, ambitious, and young, then there are lots of opportunities to advance.

      Cons

      - Pay isn't as great when you look at cities with similar cost of living. - The demand long hours, and vacation time is slow to accrue. - They value people who have worked in the field the highest, even if they don't know how to manage people. - They say they like diversity, but it depends. If you are female or African American, then they will do their best to make you feel welcome. If you are Indian or Asian, you should probably look for another company (and another city).

      Many careers within one company

      Pros

      CSX has a strong people focus culture, putting people first has allowed leadership to ensure our place as one of the best places to work in the industry; I've had several different types of positions (different careers if you will) while staying at one company; Working in Talent Acquisition allows me to ensure CSX is getting the best future employees available.

      Cons

      Our industry is 24x7 and there are times when that lifestyle can be difficult to maintain; While we don't have overtime compensation for management employees, we have a performance based bonus program that compensates for the long hours.
