I enjoyed the company until we got a new CEO. This company was a great place to work and allowed me to obtain a great working relationship with my team and customers.

New csx
Director of Strategic Planning and Technology (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLSeptember 12, 2018
New CSX is young, talented and mission focused. Very diverse workforce. A result of dramatic strategy change, the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing.
Pros
High energy
Cons
Wall Street focused

Harsh working environment
Conductor (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHSeptember 5, 2018
No work life balance. Always on call. You only get 24 hours off a week. You are able to choose a day based on seniority, but just because you choose that day it doesn't mean you will get it. You could be stuck rotting in a hotel. Its impossible to schedule vacation days. Not very good job security since they are going through a restructure and cutting jobs.

Intermodal Service Worker (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 22, 2018
Working with a crew to complete tasks in an environment where productivity can be challenging. Overtime is a must. You cannot turn it down. Hardest part of the job is getting rest after getting off and having to come back and do another twelve or sixteen hours. The money is great, but it can be challenging to balance home and work, but if you can it is an awesome company to be employed. I have nothing bad to say about this company. If money is your goal and providing a service is your what you are strive for, then CSX has a career for you!
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Overtime and lunch breaks

15 years and I walked away
Locomotive Engineer (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALAugust 22, 2018
The Job and union that represents it have gotten worse year by year. The insurance became bad enough we had to switch to wife’s. Each year the job took more of your time with limitations on vacation, cutting jobs, and working you more. The worst part is you aren’t allowed to follow your faith there. I was written up for having a bible with me. Horrible culture with even worse ethical value.
Pros
You can leave the job whenever, it’s not prison
Cons
Everything else

CSX is always improving
Fleet Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Kearny, NJAugust 15, 2018
CSX is a mission-driven company that sets goals varying from realistic to ambitious. The management culture allows for work/home balance and flexibility providing that individuals are managing the business well within or exceeding company goals. While the culture is predominantly male-dominated, CSX continues to work towards gender equality and in recent years has seen a rise in female promotions. Transportation, in general, can be a stressful industry; and CSX is no exception. The company strives to deliver the best in safety and on time service to its valued clients.
Pros
work/home flexibility
Cons
management can be unrealistic in some goal-setting

6 years of which the first 4 were great
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLAugust 4, 2018
Management position were rewarded to those who had no management training or background. Ethics violations were ignored. My last two years at the company were a case study on how wonderful companies begin to fail.

Case in point my last two managers were terminated way too late to avert the damage they did to the company.
Pros
Coworkers and their professionalism
Cons
Cronyism at it worst

Train Conductor (Former Employee) –  Cumberland, MDAugust 4, 2018
It was good until they gutted the company. Last year they started laying everyone off. Now it’s a shell of what it used to be and practically destroyed Cumberland.

Great paying employment but a career that lacks self fullfilment and reward
Track Laborer (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJuly 31, 2018
It is a large company so if you are looking for meaningful and impactful positions you will need to be in management and not a laborer. CSX will compensate you well for work and time spent for the company. They provide amazing heath benefits and great retirement pension.
Pros
High Paying
Cons
Co-workers with negative attitudes
