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

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Retirement is good if you can make it that long

    Cons

    Pay is okay, but needs improvement based on the hours on call, hours worked, and cost of living. Way too many fatigued people working because they’re forced to. No quality of life.
