Pros

Lots of young folks, good salary, sometimes interesting work, other times lots of busywork. A good introduction to the political process.

    I worked at San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Aside from the typical public sector benefits (which are slowly disappearing), there are some people at the MTA who truly care about the city

    Cons

    I worked through 4 CEOs when I was there. It's hard to get behind the vision of a regime you know you are going to outlast.

    I have been working at San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency

    Pros

    Work with some of the best and brightest; great benefits; strong commitment to the environment both internally and externally; chance to shine and be noticed

    Cons

    City system that allows people with tenure, regardless of their ability, to bring home bigger paychecks than you and does not allow you to compete without changing your job classification and testing for the classification (if testing is even available)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. New leadership has definitely put Muni on the right track. The agency has always been a whipping boy, particularly from those who are quick to judge and really have no idea how city government works. There are unique transportation issues as well as political issues tied to funding that mandate our ability as to what we can and cannot do.
