    I have been working at Union Pacific

    Pros

    If you are while working as a train man, it's hot outside. Great pay for the amount of work you actually dI.

    Cons

    Managers love to watch you work to make sure you are following rules. It's hard to be one hundred percent rules compliant and breaking some rules can be rewarded with a "vacation"

    Pros

    There are a lot of perks that union pacific provides to its employees. The company is very passionate aboit its employees and is always engaging them to realize and make efforts in reaching their potential. The company has an arguably unmatched regard for employee safety which shows that they really do care about their employees.Diversity is very much a part of the Union Pacific culture and that makes it a very pleasant place to work. The conpany has great retirement and 401k plan that is very competitive with other companies in the industry.

    Cons

    I found that parking was quite lacking for employees. Some area employers offer free parking to its employees and I feel the company could have done the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work in driving the company to insurmountable success and work in some free employee parking while you're at it.

    Pros

    Good benefits ok pay but not what I expected

    Cons

    Horrible union/mgt/co-workers. Union heads are sucking the dues out of them and they take advantage of members constantly laying off and depleting resources. Mgt is constantly looking for a reason to write them up even for things that don't need to be that extreme. It creates a negative work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bridge the gap. Find a way to clean house of the undesirable type of employees that infest the company and are ruining a potentially great company.

    Pros

    Great Pay and Benefits. Some of the management is BIAS, and have "favorites".

    Cons

    THEY fail to tell you that you have to pass the training with a 90% to stay in the program. They should give this information in the interview process, I was only told that it would be various hours , and holidays, I was not told that I would have to pass several exams to keep my job with the company. This information should be shared so that I person can decide if they want to take a chance and "gamble" with the program or stay where they are at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont be so subjective when it comes to testing, every person should have the same test! its only fair. The testing is subjective, and instructors can make the EXAMS as easy, or as difficult as they see fit. You shouldn't play when it comes to people employment. Families are affect, marriages. I have been out of work for several months, I took the job because I thought it would be a great opportunity.When you leave a company to go to another company, you are giving up a job, benefits, and stability. I worked hard to pass the EXAM, but unfortunately I didn't make it through the entire program. My advice to management, is to offer those employees who don't make it though training a different job.
