    Pros

    The company pays very well. One of the best retirement plans in the country. Company is very stable and won't be going anywhere. UP invests a lot of time and $$$ into all employees, especially managers, in terms of training and development. There is plenty of room for advancement, but you will have to move.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours for field managers. Work-life balance is almost non-existent unless you work in a corporate position. Dealing with the Unions. Highly stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Relive the pressure on the field managers


  2. Hard to justify living whereever for 4000 more annually taxed considering the hours you work and real estate risk.

    Pros

    Pay though its salary, pension though the fine print says its not guaranteed, many retirements coming.

    Cons

    Hours 60-70 per week, nights weekends holidays, 2500 dollar deductible health insurance, real estate risk, small bonuses, unfairness in promotions, unfairness in locations you are stationed at. Omaha has nothing but a zoo...

    Advice to Management

    Keep your talent (you spent nearly 100k training me), pay better, offer retiree health benefits again, allow those to choose where they live for part of their career.
