I have been working at Florida Department of Transportation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Stability, comfort, work-life balance, intelligence of co-workers, benefits, training, ability to take on new projects/challenges, positive work environment, flexible schedules

Cons

It's government employment so everything is bureaucratic/ hierarchical. Not a lot of innovation, people refuse to change policies/practices. Top management stifles creativity and new ideas, any staff other than engineering personnel are seen as 2nd-class employees

Advice to Management

Listen to the "little people," value everyone in the organization, not just engineers. Any good business person/ professional knows that an organization cannot exist without core staff but realizes the value that each part department plays in the overall picture. Professional Services staff and other administrative/ Project Management functions should be recognized as much as engineering functions.

    Pros

    Very competent, skilled, caring employees

    Cons

    Executive leadership more concerned with their agenda rather than doing the right thing. Leadership is very poor.

    Advice to Management

    Return to the mission of serving the people who live & travel in / through Florida.

    Pros

    Larger budget allows for better equipment and experience. Managment does seem to care about employees and if they're going to have a job

    Cons

    Due to state law changes, data centers are being consolidated. Additionally, managment is looking to consolidate desktop support. Layoffs are going to be rolling across the state soon. It's not going to be good for the DOT technology section.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep people working despite the Governor's wishes. The market can't bare more layoffs.
