    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Maryland State Highway Administration full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a commitment to maintaining a good roadway network, relaxed dress code, great benefits, opportunities to work other disciplines.

    Cons

    At SHA your experience really depends on whether your management is more interested in great roads or keeping their jobs. Good managers really support and invest in their people, bad ones play games and refuse to take any position that could be unflattering.

    Pros

    The training, opportunities for advancement, benefits, and work life balance are the best in the industry. This is the best of the best when comparing to other state agencies and quite a number of private firms.

    Cons

    You do get paid on the low end compared to the big engineering firms, but I believe the benefits and training make up for it. It can be frustrating at times because there is a lot of dead weight at the state, people who don't do much and just show up for a paycheck. But if you are driven, you will work with some top notch people and keep moving up.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight, it brings everyone down. Communicate with employees more frequently. Give employees flexible work hours.
