I have been working at Wisconsin Department of Transportation full-time (More than 8 years)
Decent benefits, especially vacation time. Typically don't work much over 40 hours a week.
Poor leadership from the Secretary level and upper management. Little regard for lower level non-engineering staff.
Culture of "no", rather than "yes" or "how can we".
Advice to Management
Promote leaders, not just people who are similar to you. Encourage people to care about one another. Be wary of the great performer who will do everything to get his/her name on a project or accomplishment at the cost of hurting co workers or those under them.
I applied online. I interviewed at Wisconsin Department of Transportation (Madison, WI) in June 2016.
First was a phone interview, then in person panel interview, then 2nd in person panel interview. 5 questions, 30 minutes. I didn't receive an answer either way after 2nd interview.
