I have been working at Wsdot

Pros

Stability! Hours were good, very flexible. The flex schedule was great. Got to up come early and get out by 3pm. Had the whole day ahead of me. This is great for family stable lifestyle. Someone who doesn't care about work other than the fact they have great benefits and decent pay.

Cons

No Creativity. People have no life outside of work. Plan to stay at least 20 years before moving up the later. People don't advance due to merit but rather who they know. The whole system is a mess and it's not worth getting into. The consulting world pays better and has just as good benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let people use their education to design rather than have have non-educated managers tell them the WSDOT way is the only way!
