Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Employee

"I have worked at WMATA for over 6 years. It is a place where benefits and compensation are relatively good. Management at higher levels is inconsistent and oftentimes redundant or unhelpful making the working environment less inviting because of all the micromanagement."

Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Employee
in Washington, DC

"We are Metro, we do safety and regulations. We move 200k people safely throughout the DC Metro area. I am part of a team responsible for identifying fatigue employees, bus/rail accidents, and GIS information rolled up in a SharePoint integrated web portal and we do it well or here at Metro if you can't do the job they find someone who can. My job is mission critical and very stressful at times. WMATA has the largest IT organization in the US. Yes, bigger than NYC Transit."

Automatic Train Control Technician
in Washington, DC

"I found the System Maintenance section, rank and file to be an almost family like atmosphere to be in.... We went to each other weddings, births....and yes funerals. From my point of view, at my level, we looked out for one another... Now the job was not line infantry (you had the prediction factor on your side, whereas in the Army you did not), sometimes misinformation or NO information could mean trouble... But on the whole System Maintenance was a great place to be."
