Well i know union pacific managers have a better retirement plan than te&y(train,engine and yard) employees. But there health care plan sucks.
My advice to u is try to get into the transportation side asap. Managers come and go on the rr. Bc if they make a mistake, the carrier(norfolk southern, union pacific) can fire them anytime they want. If i get fired i get my job back. Managers with u.p. have a average lifespan of five years.
Now on the other side, if u want a long carreer as a manager, u got to b the biggest a-hole on the rr. Write as many ppl up as u can, try to fire everybody. If ur a nice guy by nature, ur screwed.
So u can c why the train crews hate managers, they r always tryn to fire them.
