Pros

If you are resilient to too many political appointees, fifedoms, and overall ineffective government bureacracy, you will do well here. They have (in most areas) great work-life balance like telework, flexible work, and all. The senior leadership is pretty nice, but there are typically a lot of levels in between.

Cons

Poor first-line supervision, disengaged employees, unmotivated learning and development attitude, and an overall lack of strategic planning at the middle levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in your people. Try to avoid having money go directly to the program offices without skimming funds for the agency (OST) to use for training and development. Trust me, you need it.

    Pros

    The DoT is very public transportation accessable as the Navy Yard metro station is right across the street. The neighborhood is constantly improving.

    Cons

    It is a pretty typical government agency; sometimes I'm hindered by the bureaucracy, but as compared to the DoD it is downright entreprenuerial.
