I have been working at Union Pacific full-time

Pros

Great benefits and retirement. One thing you will notice right away is that everyone has worked here for many years.

Cons

Very large company, IT side does not receive bonuses like field operations do.
They will try their best to bring you in as cheaply as possible.

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

    Pros

    Good company and good attitude towards safety and productivity.

    Cons

    Work was somewhat monotonous, and Omaha is a boring area to spend one's life, tho I know that isn't UP's fault.

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

    Pros

    The pay is great when they don't lay you off twice a year so that they can make their yearly dollar amount. Those high and mighty people in the company have to get their million dollar bonuses each year which means that the ones who really run the company, engineer's, conductors, etc get laid off around Thanksgiving and stay that way until after the first of the year.

    The medical benefits are great as are some of their other little perks to working there. Other than what I have posted so far they are a good company to work for if you are just starting out and have the patients that it takes to hold onto your job during the layoffs that they have each year.

    Cons

    During these said layoffs employee's have lost their homes, cars, marriages just to name a few. Think about the many Christmas's that they have had to nickle and dime themselves just to put a toy under the tree for their child who doesn't understand what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management would be to keep your guys working year round, give up your millions that you get in bonus's at the end of the year. Think a little about what you are putting the people who really run the railroad throu - the employee's, the engeneer's, the conductors etc. You as Management have your Christmas Parties while your employee's have nothing but a $20.00 walmart gift card.
