    I have been working at DC Water as an intern (less than a 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.
