I worked at Union Pacific full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great business and technical problems to solve. Company has an impact on the overall economy. No shortage of project work. Decent retirement benefits unless Ryan budget eliminates the Railroad Retirement Board.

Cons

IT management is very ineffective in developing talent - you're on your own. Internal politics promotes a culture of dishonesty, deception and infighting far worse than other shops. Advancement opportunities are more related to who you have lunch with and what you can promise rather than what you can actually deliver.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

By failing to manage low performers out of the organization, top talent will continue to find better opportunities. Provide more transparency to salary administration.

    I have been working at Union Pacific full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good place to work, good pay and benifets. Lots of security we haven't had a layoff since 2000, Excellent vacation plan and 401K program.

    Cons

    Managment is trying to get to involved in the day to day work program. I think they should back off and let the supervisors do their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your supervisors do their jobs in the production phase.
