Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Transportation Planner

I have been working at Los Angeles Metro full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Dynamic environment, tuition reimbursement, good benefits

Cons

Can be hard to move up without the support of senior staff

Former Intern - Civil Engineering Student

I worked at LA County Department of Public Works for less than a year

Pros

- Easy work, mostly administrative duties and phone calls - Civil Engineering Student position gets pay increase along with engineers in the same union category (though one doesn't need to join the... union for that benefit - Chance to go in the field numerous times depending on division - Can work in position up to six (6) months post graduation - Gateway to enter as entry-level Civil Engineering Assistant

Cons

- No real engineering work; thus, no skills transferable if looking to work for more technical engineering firm - Sometimes no work and left sitting at desk looking at Reddit all day - They use... Bentley Microstation because all the designs from the '80s were done in that and it would be "too difficult" to convert/switch over to a more CONTEMPORARY software, i.e. AutoCAD
