EmployeeWorked at MTA Long Island Rail Road in New York City, NY at the time of review.

What I like

Great pay, great pension for retirement, great healthcare, most of the ppl you work with a good ppl

What I dislike

Their lack of trust in letting us do our jobs without them constantly watching over our shoulders and how many mangers their are to employees. They have a manager for every 20 - 30 employees which to me seems alittle to many

Suggestions for improvement

Streamline the company, trim the excess management and ( fat ) that isn’t needed and empower the dispatchers to make decisions without fear of punishment or being yelled at provided it benefits the company how how things are operated
