IT Specialist (Current Employee)

ProsAdvancement of lower level employees is very fast up to a certain point. Benefits in general are very good in any government agency, DOT is no different. Generally enjoy the work environment.

ConsTraining budget is very limited to keep employee skills up to date. Some of the 14s and 15s are very lazy and hold up projects for long periods of time.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think that more weeding out of individuals who are unwilling to perform up to an expected standard for their grade level is needed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
