    I worked at Bart full-time

    Pros

    Very competitive salary, excellent benefits, nice office setting at good location with many available restaurants to have lunch within walking distance.

    Cons

    Your job can be rather repetitive and there is a lot of bureaucratic issues as this is a public agency not a private company, internal politics abound and leads to favoritism for promotions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Be more objective about promotions and concentrate on the actual work rather than playing political games that produce nothing.
