Metro Transit Police Officer in Washington, DC
on February 22, 2021
An ok place to work. At times did not seem valued or supported. Leadership would sometimes leave you out to dry on your own. Everything based on seniority and at times favoritism.
Senior Systems Analyst in Washington, DC
on February 17, 2021
Hours are reasonable and there were a lot of opportunities to learn new things in a challenging environment. This was the best place I've ever worked at.
Paralegal in Washington, DC
on February 5, 2021
Compensation/benefits were decent, but due to longstanding budget issues, it was hard at times getting raises, though they tried to do better with that toward the end of my tenure. Budget issues also affected staffing choices, and forced many offices to do more work with less people, which at times affected office morale for the worse. Also had some folks in management positions who probably should not have been there.
Escalator/Elevator Journeyman Technician in Washington, DC
on January 16, 2021
The management are not very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the Elev and Esc industry. Management is only good for doing time and possibly messing that up, the management should be able to assist all mechanical technicians at there jobs but most have or have not been taught little about how the elevators or the escalators work so they aren’t remotely close to fix or no how to fix any problems
