Sounds great, near the beach, what could go wrong?
Rail System Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMay 2, 2018
If you have accepted a management position with NCTD, start saving your money and looking for your next opportunity. You will notice right off the bat there is something wrong with the work culture. Find out how long your co-workers have worked there. You're going to find out most are newly hired, just like you.

Why are there so many job openings for decent pay in a great location? You'll see.

Lots of highly qualified individuals walk-in and are walked-out. It doesn't matter how good you are if everyone is undermining each other to save themselves.

My advice? Don't spend any money. Pocket everything you earn. When you get your pink slip, take a nice vacation. Look for a real job when you get back. Keep your chin up!
Pros
Great location. Competitive pay.
Cons
Paranoid culture, for a reason.

Top management's mentality results in low worker morale, poor bussiness decisions
Other (Former Employee) –  CAFebruary 21, 2018
NCTD has some really good people working for them, but their top management is a separate vessel that does not demonstrate much value for their employees. Even more substantial, they make some poor business decisions, typically based off of favoring lowest expense in the short term. There are worse employers, but I would not recommend employment there, unless you need them as a stepping stone to a better gig.
Pros
skilled co-workers
Cons
Poor upper management, beaucratic mindset, low worker morale
