I worked at Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

Pros

I was given many complicated and challenging projects that had a clear impact on the functions of the region. I also had a lot of contact with management

Cons

The Port Authority was going through some tough financial times when I was working there so there was definitely a sense of worry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a lot of young talent interested in working for you. Make sure to take advantage of that and continue to hire new talent.

    Pros

    Lots of different jobs.
    Be a small part of something greater. Some great projects for the region!
    Great holiday parties!

    Cons

    Too many patronage jobs.
    Jobs are posted to the outside instead of internally or given to political pals
    Management is weak, too many managers are brought in from Political appointments and have no clue of the business or the department they manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should be true to their words and look at inefficiences and wasteful spending in the agency.
