Approves of CEO

I worked at Metra full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good benefits, but doesn't include (FREE METRA RIDES). I had an interview that lasted approximately 2 hours. The interview consisted over 25 technical questions and 10 behavior questions. It felt like I was a college student versus a seasoned IT professional.

Cons

Doesn't include (FREE METRA RIDES). The interview approach, make me feel like a college student versus a seasoned IT professional.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There is little work to do, so you can surf the web all day
    Lots of vacation and PTO
    Only 40 hours a week

    Cons

    We haven't had raises in over 3 years due to lack of funds
    No chance for promotion
    Very little investment in employees
    Nobody here cares about the quality of their work

    Advice to Management

    Lay off half of the staff and let some go getters pick up the slack. Pay top talent in order to retain it.
