Extremely disjointed agency

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsThe best reason to work for US DOT is the core mission of all the modes is to save lives.

ConsThe US DOT still works in a vaccum. They have not grasped the importance of collaboration - an extension of partnership. Partnerships in the "real" world are when you share common goals with another agency or organization but use your own separate means to get there. Collaboration is when you work together to achieve those goals. DOT tends to work on an island by themselves and not with others. Another issue with DOT is an aging population who have been placed in management and therefore has positioned others in key positions based on personal preferences. Nepotism is very prevalent in this agency.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt appears that the political appointees of this Administration "gets it". They understand what it takes to suceed and how to structure the organization by employing and retaining a skilled workforce. I hope they are able to keep the momentum to change DOT into the great agency it has the potential to become.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
