    I worked at New York City Transit Authority as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible litigation experience. First week in, and I already went to federal court to observe proceedings. The chance to sit in on depositions and write briefs on cases involving employment law, contracts or affirmative litigation. You have an opportunity to explore different areas of law.

    Cons

    Pace can be slow. The day does not go as fast if you are not going to court. Sometimes the work can be tedious. You may be called upon to read pages upon pages of depositions looking for a single word or phrase.

    Pros

    They have good health care and retirement packages. They also have good vacation and sickness days benefits which are acquired on a monthly basis. In addition to mandatory personal days. Most jobs are union which is a plus and have inexpensive monthly membership dues. The unions are very effective in cases of a disagreement with management.

    Cons

    Too many nosy people, lotta haters. The organization does not encourage team work nor, does it provide employee incentive programs. There have been a lot of cut backs and minimal raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give recognition to good employees and offer more free information technology training programs for the employees.

    My work hours were very flexible. There was virtually unlimited overtime available to anyone who wanted to work. I met a diverse group of wonderful people.

    It was sometimes difficult to get a day off, and the working conditions were very dirty and uncomfortable at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get out in the field and see what is really going on.

    I worked at New York City Transit Authority as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    During my six month internship, I was able to master essential skills in Customer services, staffing, and research and analysis of data. I really appreciated the culture, the respect and safety of employees the company is committed to. Also, the manger was really great.

    Cons

    The only thing the management should consider revising is to retain or hire intern(s). I noticed that the department where I was ( Depart. of Corporate Communication), they don't hire interns. That's really socks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should consider hiring interns to encourage them to give the best of they can to perform well they tasks they will be assigned to. I also would suggest that manage take at least 30 or 10 minutes of their time by month to spend with interns to evaluate they progress and discuss ways of improvement and advancement.
