    I worked at PennDOT for less than a year

    Pros

    Overall good experience. I was fortunate enough to be placed with a supervisor who involved me in design projects. PennDOT made the effort to keep on projects that were close to home.

    Cons

    It's up to you to take initiative and find things to do. There's not always work to be done, so you have to make yourself look busy.
