I worked at Union Pacific full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great business and technical problems to solve. Company has an impact on the overall economy. No shortage of project work. Decent retirement benefits unless Ryan budget eliminates the Railroad Retirement Board.

Cons

IT management is very ineffective in developing talent - you're on your own. Internal politics promotes a culture of dishonesty, deception and infighting far worse than other shops. Advancement opportunities are more related to who you have lunch with and what you can promise rather than what you can actually deliver.

Advice to Management

By failing to manage low performers out of the organization, top talent will continue to find better opportunities. Provide more transparency to salary administration.

    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.

    Company succeeds if there are good managers, hire the right people, and promote the right people
