Pros

Septa is the 5th largest public transit company in the US, and as such provides an invaluable service to the citizens of Philadelphia. The work is important, interesting, and varied. The employees are collaborative, friendly, and diverse. The employee benefits are extremely generous and include something that is rare these days, a pension.

Cons

Septa is a large company with approximately 8,000 employees, most of whom are decentralized in various locations throughout the 5-county Septa region. Only approximately 600 employees are located in the Center City headquarters building. This physical separation adversely affects communication between the various work groups.

Advice to Management

One of Septa's strengths has always been the loyalty of its employees. Most employees consider Septa their second family and choose to spend their entire careers there. Management should intentionally kindle this feeling of family.

    Pros

    flexibility and benefits along with no job pressure. However, it is the best place to work if you have family obligations or run a business on the side

    Cons

    no career advancement and no challenge on the job. It is a very political place. It is not what you know but who you know period.

    Advice to Management

    Septa needs to recognize their employees as assets and not liabilities. You ionvest in assets, beside just a check. You have succesion planning for career growth
