    I worked at Indot full-time

    Pros

    37.5 hour work weeks
    lots of holidays, sick days, vacation time

    Cons

    very cliquish
    lots of "not my job"
    people are there just for the paycheck; if they weren't working here, they'd be working at Walmart

    Advice to Management

    Try communicating with your employees. Also try make it more of a professional atmosphere, there are too many people that have nothing better to do then to cause trouble for other people

    I worked at Indot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, If you get the right management they have a great Red Button program to assist staff in improving skills, cross training

    Cons

    Hostile, Cliques, If you are not on someone's "side" you will be managed out, not rewarded for accomplishments, ideas are stolen by upper management, upper management is very easily intimidated, internal HR is bias and unethical, very dangerous work environment if you want to grow

    Advice to Management

    Use HR that is not based in your department, have testing done on upper management for personality disorders, audit upper management as they rubber stamp vendor requests and are not liable for over payments. You need better management training.

    I have been working at Indot part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Welcoming environment, conducive to learning, and easy to network. Exciting internship activities at Central Office provide a nice break from office work every two weeks.

    Cons

    Relative to other engineering internships, the pay is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    The position is certainly desirable from every aspect except the pay. If this were improved, INDOT could attract more talented applicants.
