Challenging but rewarding
Dispatcher Clerk (Former Employee), Fontana, CAMay 2, 2015
Pros: Statbility, benefits
Cons: politics, pay
my position there was never 2 days alike which I loved but the work was very challenging seeing this district covers two largest counties in the state. Management can get a little testy with you but thats because the politicians will come down on them if something happens in their area. So its alot of political work behind the scens

typical government job
Airway Transportation Systems Specialist (Current Employee), Springfield, ILApril 28, 2015
Spend the first couple months in Oklahoma learning basics. Then return for a few more courses on equipment you will be working on. Some say they are to short or to long. Once done with schools quick get a work load often feel your being slammed with expectations of being a expert when just left a two week school. Pay is good, benefits are good

A good first job
Civil Engineer - Program Manager (Current Employee), Jackson, MSApril 4, 2015
Pros: Diversity of good work experience.
Cons: Pay
This was an excellent first job. Employees had latitude to remain stationary or rotate into the other lines of business (Bureaus). I gained a lot of professional and engineering experience with IDOT. A fairly diverse, and young work force. After gaining experience, a lot of employees obtained employment with consultants or other state, local, or Federal organizations. The pay wasn't that great, and metropolitan Chicago was fairly expensive.
