Great place for mid-level career - not many positions
Statewide Planner (Former Employee) –  Hanover, MDFebruary 16, 2015
Worked temporarily in the planning and capital programming division. Management is great about its employees having a work-life balance and treat all employees as professionals. They expect the job to be done well, but don't micro manage on how to get the job done at all. This is rare at its modal agency, SHA. Pay is also better here than at the modal administrations. Its a small office though and vulnerable to political change. Also, not a place you will gain much recognition in the industry as it plays mostly an administrative role rather than technical role in transportation.
Pros
awesome work-life balance and decent mid-career level pay
Cons
vulnerable to political change and not a place to make a name in the industry

Bad place to work
cleaner (Former Employee) –  Baltimore,MarylandFebruary 13, 2015
You will be harassed and threatened by management if you are a probationary employee. Management will do all they can to have you fired to keep you from completing your 90 days of probation because management and supervisor know you have no union representation if you are a probationary employee They will treat you differently from the union employees such as not allowing overtime constant write UPS for minor thing Stay away from MTA if your not a bus driver the shop workers will be harassed
Cons
harassment work pkace disrespect

Difficult workplace for women (anyone really) trying to balance career and family.
BUS OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJune 6, 2014
Typical day - driving the bus.
I learned - that I am a very strong and resilient person! I also learned that even big corporations with a lot of people can lack communication and camaraderie.
Management - No Comment (see above)
Hardest Part - The balancing act. Every man is of themselves, so it makes everyone's life harder!
The most enjoyable part of the job - working independently for the most part, and getting paid every Friday!!
Pros
nice pay
Cons
short or no breaks
