I have been working at Union Pacific full-time for more than a year

Pros

A little tough to pick more than a few pros but here goes, benefits, travel, pay, location

Cons

Need to change the transfer policy from two years to a year. They don't care if you have a family, you get talked to if you layoff. Need to find a better system other than the seniority ranking so people can move up in their career field. They need to stop hiring all these new people if they have no where to put the in the service unit

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers need to come from the bottom, like start at the bottom in the department and work your way up. Just because you have a degree does not mean you know what you are doing when it comes to the railroad.

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

    Pros

    Good people to work around and with. Cant beat the amount of money that they pay compared to other jobs currently available, especially for someone out of high school or with no degree.

    Cons

    A lot of "oldheads" who are still stuck in the old ways of railroading, yet are unwilling to adapt to changes or even help fight for better agreements. Don't expect to have a wild social life, as most jobs require a crazy schedule or to be on call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with the workers...better communication means better production.
