      Don't Work Here

      Jul 28, 2021 - Associate General Counsel

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They're always getting sued so there's plenty of work to do in litigation. The prices gouge the poor and rich residents of the District so you'll always get a paycheck.

      Cons

      DC Water has a very toxic environment. They promote the incompetent and harass and/or fire the competent workers. It's a do-as-I-say culture and they penalize employees for coming up with new ideas or thinking outside of the box. If you want a good government position where you can be incompetent and get promoted, then DC Water is the place for you.
