Advice to Management

Mr Ward does a great job leading by example. I think the entire rank & file respects and trusts him. However, some of the management team need to learn how to lead by example and treat employees as part of a TEAM rather than treating them with condescion.

    Current Employee - Locomotive Engineer in Baltimore, MD
    Current Employee - Locomotive Engineer in Baltimore, MD
    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

    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.

    Former Employee - Clerk in Richmond, VA

    Pros

    Pretty good healthcare benefits
    Pay was ok when you finally made it to 100% compensation
    Paid holidays and usually closed up for Thanksgiving Christmas and New Years

    Cons

    Disliked the us vs. them attitude between union and management. The work hours are difficult to adjust to since everything is based on union seniority and bid process. Some of the buildings and facilities are pretty run down and not in great parts of town ... safety on the job can be an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Update some of the buildings and facilities your crews live and work in ... a working shower, microwave and coffee maker can go along way to employee happiness.
