    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at KCATA as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salaries and benefits are very strong, including an onsite fitness center. Medical benefits have low premiums and low deductibles. Many of the employees are friendly.

    Cons

    Senior managers found stealing bus parts were allowed to "retire" and not prosecuted! Top heavy with "Chiefs" and senior management and egos to match. Lots of changes and secrets and little respect given to non-management staff.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with your public funding, what you're spending as well as your salaries. Treat every employee like they are valued and belong.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, average pay, vacation time, sick time, personal holidays. Depending on who is your boss, they tend to be relaxed with time and letting you leave early or come in late if you need to adjust your schedule for a personal matter.

    Cons

    The position you are hired in at is usually the one you will hold the rest of your career at the KCATA. They tend to play favoritism towards certain employees. To be specific more males versus females are promoted as well as receive a higher salary.

    Advice to Management

    Promotion from within should occur more often than it does. This would boost the morale of your employees by showing that they can grow within the company.

    I have been working at KCATA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent medical benefits, compensatory time for select salaried employees, fitness center, ability to save unused vacation

    Cons

    Understaffed in most departments, overworked, stressful work environment, paying below market value for many positions, the work environment and operational decisions are politically motivated, do not always follow established procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect, value employee suggestions, establish written procedures at an operational level as well as at a departmental level. Treat employees as valued assets not abuseable resources.
