I have been working at Union Pacific as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Excellent culture: emphasis on work-life balance
Unparalleled retirement benefits (pension, 401k/Roth, etc)
Management interested in your personal and professional growth

Cons

Lower cash compensation than pure tech shops
Very traditional corporate culture (can be a good thing depending on your personal preference)
Lack of collaborative workspaces at UPC
Lack of IT job opportunity outside of Omaha, NE (changing now with opening of Austin satellite)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more collaborative work spaces to adapt to younger workers, higher compensation to compete with other tech shops

    I have been working at Union Pacific full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and insurance. Relatively easy work.

    Cons

    Timekeeping steals money from employees by denying good time claims and carrier is always wanting employees to more than their job description and not wanting to pay arbitrarys. From the time you hire on they (managers)are trying to fire you and actually hide in bushes, and can always find someting to write you up for. Would be a great job if employees were paid like their union agreement and if management didn't ftreat employees as slaves, which makes job so stressful that it is unsafe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect and not as slaves, and workers morale and job performance will improve...
