    Rewarding

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    I have been working at DC Water as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    General manager is an inspiring speaker with great motivations. Work is rewarding and allows for personal growth in position. At times stressful, water is 24/7 so always on the go.

    Cons

    Communication throughout departments is not proficient. A lot of dead weight, employees that contribute very little. Type of job where the work is all for the public but one will only receive negative press.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders in this company are doing a fine job in struggling circumstances. Keep continuing to look for new talent, the good wages are enough to attract top level graduates and experiences professionals.

    I have been working at DC Water

    Pros

    Great company. Excellent internship program although some of the interns did not get as much experience in the other departments. They should be a little more coordinated in what interns are expected to learn and do while at their respective departments.

    Cons

    Difficult to park at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was excellent. I would say try to meet with the interns more.

    Very involved, lots of opportunities for learning, many intern events (baseball game, team building, professional development workshops, tours, etc..). Great experience.

    Cons

    If you dont have a car to commute to work, everyday feels like a journey. The smell is also something that you will have to get used to.
