"Union Pacific is going through reductions in employee numbers, as well as on equipment, infrastructure, and other cost savings measures in order to provide bonuses to the top executives. While the shareholders currently love it, it is not sustainable, and will end poorly. With 4 generations at UP, including some of the top executive positions, I believe this will have dire consequences for the communities served by rail."

"This company only cares about the shareholders and top executives making money. Your quality of life will be horrible. You will work all holidays and have very few weekend days off ever. If they decide they dont need you they will cut you off and never look back . You are just a number nothing more just train trash."

"Union Pacific goes to great lengths to ensure that all of its employees are treated fairly and with respect. Everything they provide for their employees is top-notch, such as work facilities and benefits. They expect their employees to work hard in return. UP employees are all screened well and are high quality - experts in their fields and good at what they do."

"When i hired on in 2004, this was a great place to work , good benefits, ok pay , but starting in 2017 company profits became more important than the people. Began furloughing/laying off, people by the hundreds, At the same time announcing record profits quarterly, in 2018 hired a lot of new mechanics, for the La Basin , and less than 6 mouth later lay them all off, these where people with families that quit jobs to come work for Union Pacific, in 2020, lay off 500 supervisor, destroyed a union all in the name of profits."

"The company has gone downhill and treats employees badly. Poor safety and quality of work. It's more worried about running trains than keeping employees safe, and trains working at a high level."
