    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Pennsylvania Department of Transportation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    PennDOT has excellent benefits. The organization has a lot of new ideas and is slowly moving toward a brighter future in transportation. there are a lot of opportunities to pick a career path that fits your wants and needs. In many jobs below the management level, you work your shift and go home. You do not have demands related to work outside of your work schedule.

    Cons

    The organization is slow to change. Some jobs can be frustrating depending on management and co-workers. The pay is somewhat below what you can get in the private sector.
