Good place to work but room for improvement.

Director (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsMission oriented, everyone works to support the customer and to provide the best product possible. Good day-to-day cooperation at the tactical level.

ConsInternal politics rules. Departments spend too much time working against each other when cooperation would drive mission results. Difficult to see the entire strategy.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrive the strategy down to all departments. Additionally, the company operates more like a government agency and less like a competitive transportation company. Drive the quality focus to all levels.
