    I have been working at Washington Gas Light Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits is good in terms of generous paid time off (including all holidays) and the ability to telecommute two to three days a week for many departments.

    Cons

    Commute is challenging whether it is to the DC, Springfield, or Vienna location. There are systems and tools used that are outdated (compared to industry standards) which hinder efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to the employees comments and feedback and do take them seriously.
