    Great benefits, but 'Bump' system can make it not worth the time and energy.

    Pros

    Benefits are great and future job security can be achieved..

    Cons

    'bump' system can make it frustrating where you can be constantly relocated to another location to do the same job, but not all train yards function the same.

    The NJTRANSIT EXPERIENCE

    May 6, 2022 - Full Time Bus Operator 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible hours consistent work and overtime

    Cons

    Not enough attention and care to the bus operations safety, clean condition for drivers. No enforcement of passenger complying to rules. No check and balance, passengers allowed to be disorderly, evade fare assault operators with no adverse consequences being dealt out to them. Transit police does not give any attention to bus operations they prioritize the train, extremely bias.

    Favorite job so far

    Dec 17, 2021 - Systems Analyst/Programmer in Maplewood, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Best manager I've ever had Great coworkers Very few meetings (median was probably 0, busier weeks might have 5 hours of meetings total). Exceptional benefits (health/dental/vision, 5 weeks PTO + 2 weeks holidays, 401k, 401a, free public transit, and more). Very good job security, although it's somewhere between public sector and private sector.

    Cons

    Return to work policy post-COVID-19 is bad. Trying to make IT employees return to work, but also not enforcing it, which results in a ton of confusion and wasted a lot of my time/money. IT upper management is very bad. They often lie (e.g. return-to-work, raises) and the town halls just sap your energy for the day. Tech stack is mostly outdated (e.g. VB.NET + WinForms, ASP.NET, some visual studio 2005, Crystal Reports). No culture of cybersecurity Underpaid Only 1 year of raises in IT across ~15 years. IT should be unionized.
