    I worked at Port Authority of New York and New Jersey full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large scale, multi-disciplinnary, publiic sector infrastructure projects, in a dynamic urban environment. Complex regulatory and governmental environment that exposes employees to a broad range of skills and management challenges. Significant professional growth opportunities in diverse businesses including aviation, transportation, rail transit, maritime, engineeering, etc., and numerous staff support positions.

    Cons

    The Port Authority is a quasi-public company that has reduced staff, salaries, and benefits over the years, comparable to private sector reductions.. New employee pension and health benefits no longer result in significant staff retention for long careers. Current mangement skills and experience are weak, and political realities complicate many aspects of the work environment

    Advice to Management

    Balance the temptation to continue to obtain cost savings with the need to develop career staff and maintain a professional work environment.
