    Pros

    Great training and benifits

    Cons

    Interviews should only be conducted by human resources and management outside of the headquarters of the listing. Hard work and experience can fall short to favoritism. Also special certifications should change job title.

    Advice to Management

    Be attentive to employees that are standing out and not getting the opportunity to advance. This influences them to relocate on a hope that opportunity could be else where.

    Pros

    The work is rewarding when you think about how many people are affected by our work. For the most part the team members are very friendly and hardworking.

    Cons

    The workload can seem overwhelming at times but that is not the norm. The fact that the Commissioner can be replaced every four years (as a new Governor is elected) means that our culture can be affected every four years too. Not always good.

    Advice to Management

    Every decision should be driven by this simple rule, "Does this decision make our transportation system better for the citizens."
