Great place to work if your relatives work here or you like dysfunction

Intern (Current Employee) Laurel, MD

ProsPleasant environment depending on the floor your working on.
Some departments are much more friendly than others.

ConsFavoritism is at an all time high and HR Department does this the most.
Family members move up very quickly.
Unless you are related to someone or have a very close relationship with a current employee it may not be as easy to obtain employment at this agency.
HR is very dysfunctional; unorganized; slow to complete hiring process
Many unqualified applicants hired
When there's issues with employees or departments, EVERYONE knows.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart from scratch with your HR department.
Upgrade IT for the company
Be fair in hiring/promoting
Kill the nepotism

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    What a Shocker !!

    Information Technologist (Current Employee) Laurel, MD

    I have been working at Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission full-time for more than a year

    Pros: Tactical level employees working for the company are very nice… Cons: Leadership team is basically outsourced because they all work on contract basis and as such have no vested interest in the success of the employees. HR… Advice to Senior Management: Recognize that the internal problems will eventually reach a boiling point that will become public and embarrassing as lawsuits continue to roll in. HR… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
