    I worked at Port Authority of Allegheny County for less than a year

    Pros

    I got to see many facets of Civil Engineering. They would take me out to see a different project about once a week.

    Cons

    Many times it is boring. You are assigned to do random intern jobs like scan papers and organize drawings. They try to make sure you're entertained but when the good jobs run out, you get stuck with the boring things to do.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits when compared to other local jobs, overtime available if you like working with the public and kissing butt.

    Cons

    Management does not have your back, 95% of the public hate you and the cops have open season on the drivers. It would be hard to recommend this job to anyone nowadays with the current culture and work philosophy.
