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

Pros

Great opportunities but a lot of work required. Knowledge is power in this company. Very data driven finance departments. Very competitive for promotions. Retirement benefits are the absolute best in the country. Health insurance, not so much but it does make you cost sensitive.

Cons

Some management staff unqualified but promoted because of gender/minority needs. While diversity is overall helpful, hopefully, the day will come when promotions are given to the most qualified candidate with a blind eye to all else. Connections are still the fastest way to the top.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great atmosphere, great training programs, and fair pay, I certainly can not complain

    Cons

    Longer hours, desk jobs are hard for active people

    Advice to Management

    Keep following Jim Young's example. He is an inspiration to everyone. Including the new guy.

    Pros

    Great money and benefits. Fun job, not stuck in a cubicle. Good opportunities for young people or hard workers

    Cons

    Terrible lifestyle. Always on call. Have to be there awhile to get enough seniority to hold a regular schedule. Union is soft.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with practical experience, not college kids who have never railroaded.
