I worked at Washington Metro full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I was at WMATA for 7 years as a paralegal. What I loved about working in the particular department I was in was some of the people I worked with and the overall goal and morale of the agency.

Cons

no room for promotion in the field I was in, poor management - i.e. targeting of employee based on office manager's mood, subtle forms of discrimination, pay scale, favoritism

Advice to Management

With regards to the Office of General Counsel, put people in the managerial position who are neutral, even-tempered, people-oriented and understand what it means to be a true leader.
