I worked at Capital Metro full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Fairly good pay,excellent daycare program for employee,'s children,major problems with controlling their union and the union policies. Should never had contracted out their services,it will in the long run cost Austin taxpayers more money.

Cons

Too political, change their policies way too often

Advice to Management

Better insurance rates

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Capital Metro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good solid work. A lot of skilled people.

    Cons

    Management and Union conflict is terrible. It spills into the work environment, poisoning a perfect work environment. Online applications are too quickly poured over, I believe that good talent is being passed by.

    Advice to Management

    Both management and the Union need to come together to make the operation a better product for the city, the employees, and the equipment.

    I have been working at Capital Metro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Making a difference; Hard-working team and staff, Good pay and benefits. The people who put the service out every day are hard working and dedicated, as are most administrative workers.

    Cons

    Financial challenges and mismanagement and strong, often negative political pressure on the board and executive staff have hindered strong, effective leadership, and created a PR nightmare. As a result, Capital Metro deserves more credit than it gets for making the city a great place to live.
