Pros

Csx is a leader in the transportation industry. I am well paid and over the years have been able to establish a very comfortable lifestyle. This is a very stable company that provides an environmantally friendly necessary service.

Cons

Long hours in the operations positions. I sense that older managers tend to be overlooked for key promotions that seem to be handed to young people with marginal experience. Also, the "good old boy " network is alive and thrives with this company. My overall impression is that Senior management want "yes men" promoted to key positions and discount mangers who are either older or not in lock step with their views..

Advice to Management

Take better care of the operations managers, especially the older and more experienced individuals. Folks who have been around for 25 or 30 years do not need to be micromanaged. As General Patton so eloquently stated, " don't tell people how to do things. Tell them what needs to be done and be surprised with their results"!

    Pros

    Compensation and Benefits Package is good. There is opportunity to grow and develop, however the time and effort put into the company to get to that point may be extreme.

    Cons

    There is not near enough family time and the workplace is full of negativity. It is a good place to make money, however the sacrifices that must be given up in order to make that money may not be worth it to all.

    Advice to Management

    There are evident advances to making the workplace a more family friendly and positive one, but there is a lot that needs to be done in the field to make this so. I understand that it is a business and that there is a lot that needs to be done in order to get to that point, but there is more to life than making money.
