Signal Foreman -System Signal Construction (Former Employee) – Florida, Georgia, SC, NC, VA, AL. – 30 March 2017
Still operates on the "good ole boy system" If your not one of the chosen ones they make it hard for you to succeed. Supervisors have no accountability. You are guilty until you prove otherwise when accused by a supervisor. The Union has no power
good pay, decent insurance, good retirement
No accountability for supervisors, nepotism, good ole boy system, Union has very little power.

Business Development Analyst (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – 21 March 2017
Great opportunity on the cutting edge of transportation. The company benefits are great there as well. Most people who get jobs here never leave so opportunity are limited on getting on board with the company.
Enjoyed my years with CSX but the management and culture has changed significantly and I'm afraid they are moving in the wrong direction. Although it was not my decision to leave, it was an option I had been exploring.
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – 19 March 2017
I learned the importance of being fact-based to have the right results, the right way. Being an example to my employees builds trust within the group. Set a standard for your team to follow by and the results will surprise. Don't just tell them to do something, tell them why they are doing it.
Manager (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – 17 March 2017
recent changes in Executive management has led to massive layoffs of the most productive, senior and highest paid employees Used to be like your family. Looked forward to going to work every day, and everyone cared about each other. Sorry to see that profits and shareholders have made caring a thing of the past. No longer do they care about hiring Veterans or Disabled or a rail career for managers. We all wish our former teammates well and success.
Family environment, MR Ward, co workers, social responsibility
Managing the apps dev team supporting Advanced Engineering involved the most cutting edge emerging technologies with the most talented people. Workplace culture was work/life balanced and great team interaction. Hardest part of job was going home. Most enjoyable was working on cutting edge, sky's the limit technology.
Midwest Fleet Coordinator / Smith System Trainer (Former Employee) – Bedford Park, IL – 13 March 2017
I was over 90 owner operators help them maintain and provide good service to the company and our customers. I oversaw fleet compliance and safety programs. Performed safety meeting as well as smith system training. Maintained a good working relationship with our main headquarters and our terminal.
CSX is undergoing significant changes in 2017. I do not expect the culture and work/life balance to be the same under Hunter Harrison. If you can get into the company, they do currently provide good compensation and benefits.
