Jacksonville, Fla. – June 23, 2014 – For the second year in a row, CSX has been named a “Best Place to Work in IT” by IDG’s Computerworld. Ranked fifteenth among large companies, CSX improved its ranking from 2013 by four places, earning specific recognition for its commitment to excellence and quality in the IT workplace.

The Best Places to Work in Information Technology (IT) list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.
"Hiring the best and the brightest IT pros, offering them competitive pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the outstanding employers on this year's Best Places to Work in IT list," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld. "Both newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent with challenging business-critical projects, extensive training opportunities and ongoing career development programs.”
