Current Employee - Freight Conductor in Boone, IA
Current Employee - Freight Conductor in Boone, IA

I have been working at Union Pacific full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great pay and benefits if you can stand the politics

Cons

They like to hire and get you away from your job so they can lay you off so bonuses can be paid. While some are in food stamp lines. Managers are getting million dollar bonuses. Then the think that the furloughed people will come back for more abuse. All they want to do is make record profits to show the stock holders good numbers. They don't care if you lose your house or vehicle because you got laid off. They don't care that you only see your family in passing in or out the door coming home or going out in 10 hours later. Why should they care they work 5 days a week and get million dollar bonuses off your work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the work force while you still have enough people to do the work. People are leaving in bunches to go to other railroads that treat them like people not numbers. The educated idiots that never worked in railroad or did anything that has to do with railroad, should not be in management. Warren Buffet gave some advise that was not listened to about management.
