    I have been working at Orange County Transportation Authority full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love the the alternative work schedule (working 9 hour days for every other Friday off). There's definitely a sense of job security and management genuinely care about you. Of you work hard and do your job well, there's definitely some flexibility.

    Cons

    Depends on the team and expectations but for the nature of my job doing outreach, you can get burned out pretty quick. Wish the working space was open rather than cubicles.

    Pros

    Exciting to be in public service helping maximize taxpayers dollars to transition to 21st century transportation options

    Cons

    Each division is a silo. Information is jealously guarded. Some of the divisions have rigid and ego-driven hierarchies of managers. If you don't fit the mold--i.e., a while, male, athletically inclined white make with 2.3 children who like to drink craft beer and jog, you will be side-lined.
