    Pros

    One of the benefits for working at NCDOT is the general flexibility and Work Life Balance. An opportunity to learn a great deal how things are really made in transportation policy and procedure.

    Cons

    Too much office politics, if you are a young individual and motivated probably private would have better opportunities, financially and self-growth

    I worked at North Carolina Department of Transportation

    Pros

    If you are in transportation and focusing on construction this is a great place to start. The people want you to learn and they need as much help as they can get. As long as you are willing to provide the time the they will look out for you.

    Cons

    The hours in construction are long, but that mainly the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it would have been good to get some rotation or a little bit of experience in other fields the DOT had to offer.,
