Pros: great company, security, good pay and benefits, promotions possible.
Cons: still has a lot of good ole boy networking attitudes, promotions are not always based on abillity in some departments.
CSXT is a strong viable company in the community. It has excellent benefits and great opportunity for growth if you are in the right place at the right time and with a management team who values hardwork and looks to help develop key players.
CSXT was known as "the good old boy" network in that the people at the top took care of their own. In the past – more... promotion was not based on ability in all department, but on friendship, family, relationships, etc. I'm not certain this does not still exist, but it also did not prevent growth if you were not in the know; you worked to get yourself visible and in the know.
I beleive this is the case in a lot of business, so this is not a fault; this is a realization that we all must face and find unique ways to overcome. I learned so much from the various department I worked at CSXT. I had excellent managers and some that I would never want to work for. My last job was in a deparment that I felt I would never get out or grow, and it was not a fit. I left CSXT only becasue I did not see myself overcoming the deparment or getting out. It took me all of 15 years to get promoted, and I'm an excellent employee. I did not want to spend another 15 years to reach the level I am now as Director of Sales or even Manager rather than Assistance Manager.
Great company with exceptional benefit. Be prepared to work and not to take anything personal, work the plan and plan your future! – less
