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

Pros

free Orca card; employees in my division were friendly

Cons

Little to no training; chaotic environment; overall cold/unfriendly employees

Advice to Management

Establish thorough employee orientation training program before new employees are expected to produce; reality of culture and values does not reflect what upper management portrays
