Hostile Environment
Battered and Beaten (Former Employee), Seattle, WAAugust 16, 2014
Pros: good mission
Cons: unprofessional environment and bad management
Divisions are working against each other. This comes from the top down. This culture is noticeable almost immediately to new employees who begin to become defensive and unprofessional as a result. There are some very hard working people at Sound Transit. HR makes it a breeding ground for lazy people as well.

Property Management/ Security Officer (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJune 28, 2014
Pros: great place to work
Cons: gossip can be a problem in the security field
I loved working here.

Property Management

What I learned

* Honoring people by their word doesn't hold value. Sometimes you have to go out and see the work of people you are in charge of.
* Property boundaries are constantly changing whether you want them to happen or not.
* More verbal judo and in a civilian sense

Security Patrolman

* The public – more... transportation system is vital to the public especially in growing cities like Seattle.

Busy environment with friendly, hardworking coworkers
A/P Specialist (Current Employee), Seattle, WAJune 9, 2014
Pros: great people, free bus passes, excellent benefits
Cons: work can get really hectic at month and year end resulting in less time off for personal time.
Sound Transit is an amazing place to work I must say. I love the people I work with and the management is excellent when it comes to providing a great work environment. I've been working at ST for 3.5 years and every year I feel I learn something new that I can apply to my job.

The hardest part of the job is being able to manage all of the work that – more... I get on a daily basis. It's indeed challenging, but very rewarding at the same time. I'd definitely recommend working at Sound Transit to anyone that asks me about the agency. Overall it's just a wonderful company to work at. – less

Extremeley conservative abd bureaucratic place to work.
Senior Financial Analyst (Revenue) (Current Employee), Seattle, WAMay 19, 2014
Pros: good benefits.
Cons: very bureaucratic for a young organization, very conservative culture, slow to change, incredibly lengthy to get simple things done, poor internal software, difficult to get cooperation from the it department to fix issues, no advancement opportunities in finance, no development plan to migrate into management
If you like to get things done in a reasonable time-frame and expect departmental cooperation this is not the place for you. It takes an enormous amount of time and effort to accomplish very small tasks.
