What is the retirement plan like at Los Angeles Metro?

Pros

The Benefits, retirement, pay its government after all

Cons

Everything else. Very political. They definitely take advantage of those who are “at will” and not in a union. So many higher ups have no idea what they’re doing so newcomers (especially young employees) are constantly blamed. Someone in our department was let go as a result of this. Horrible. Our manager had no idea what our department was working on at any given time. Knew nothing about our processes and didn’t care to learn. I seriously question how they got this 200k+ salary knowing so little and taking zero time to learn. My supervisor was constantly putting everyone down and blaming others as well claiming how busy they were though they were always leaving early and coming in late. So many people constantly blaming others for anything and everything. “I never said that. I gave that to X” is very common so ultimately the good hearted people who haven’t learned the system yet suffer. Everyone refuses to take responsibility. The amount of bullying that I’ve experienced and witnessed with myself and others is unbelievable but no one does anything about it because those who bully have job security and those who don’t are new and know they can be fired for any reason. It’s no wonder LA’s transportation system is so bad with these irresponsible, bullying leaders in place.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. Investigate before making top down decisions. Stop promoting only those who suck up. Stop hiring incompetent managers who want to sit and do nothing but attend meetings all day so they can show how busy they are.
