I worked at Virginia Department of Transportation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Immediate boss was great - very conscientious and very nice person.

EVERYTHING is politically driven, including annual work plan.

Advice to Management

Ensure that the Audit Committee is independent of insiders, and that Audit team reports directly to the Audit Committee.

    Pros

    If you do not like Engineering, you may find a meaningful job. Positions best suited for this company are accountants, political climbers.

    Cons

    If the whole concept of engineering, efficiency, project design and management, task completion and ethics are important to you, then you're not a good fit. The top management has successfully encouraged so many employees to leave that they are now in the process of mass hiring.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some engineers at the top who have the knowledge, ethics and stamina to remove the astounding political control. VDOT has been reduced to the equivalent of the man behind the curtain.
