    I have been working at Virginia Department of Transportation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible and generous time off, excellent sick leave and health care benefits. Easy work that has no pressure to complete

    Cons

    Poorly trained and clueless leadership. Managers are promoted based on time served and political connections rather than training and talent. Poor time management and work scheduling. Zero opportunities for pay raises or promotions for merit. Non existent training or job skill improvements. Top down directive management in an environment where employee input is prohibited.

    Advice to Management

    Go to a real training school and discover how to manage a company, Institute a program for continuing job skills training, then reward the workers for gaining new skills with increased pay or promotions. Stop treating everybody under you like they are 5 years old, take input from your subordinates and use the information to benefit the company.
