    I have been working at Arizona Department of Transportation full-time (more than 5 years)


    Great benefits, good people. Working hours are great. Challenging work and some non challenging. Some career advancement


    No raises, upper management can't solve issues. Engineers head of management which is a terrible idea. Some managers micro manage. No tuition reimbursement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who have business backgrounds NOT engineering degrees. Just because you have an engineering degree does not mean they are great at managing.

    Neutral Outlook
