DFW Design Manager (Former Employee) –  DFW Airport, TXMay 3, 2017
DFW is a hostile environment with the new management team in place. They have been trying to get all the experienced individuals to leave the airport and backfill those positions with less experience and less knowledge. They do not treat their consultants fair their budgets are pipe dream and nothing can be built or designed within their set budgets.

Talent Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee) –  DFW Airport, TXNovember 8, 2016
It has it's ups and downs but overall it is a pretty good place to work. It is in a massive transition and there is a cultural gap of ages starting so that has caused some conflict.

Project Administrator (Current Employee) –  DFW Airport, TXAugust 9, 2016
DFW Airport is a good place to work, but they need to invest more money into developing their human capital and increasing the office/brand culture. The market is saturated with great companies that do a lot for their employees. DFW Airport needs to get on board if they want to recruit and retain quality employees.

Great people work here but do not trust top leaders
Various Positions (Former Employee) –  DFW Airport, TXMarch 9, 2016
The airport is similar to a small city in the diversity of jobs and responsibilities.
Employees are hard working and often rewarded for their efforts.
Top leadership too frequently proclaim that employees have an "entitlement" mentality, which often causes distrust of top leaders.
Former and current CEO practice Servant Leadership, but most of their direct reports do not, so employees on certain teams feel that leadership is "command and control".
The CEO should look at attrition among the teams that report to him to discern where there are leadership problems.
Pros
Employees are professional and friendly; fun place to work
Cons
Distrust of leadership

Great place to work
Lead Automotive Technician (Former Employee) –  DFW Airport, TXNovember 13, 2015
DFW Airport is probably the best place I've ever worked. From the beginning the amount of time put into each employee is unlike I've ever seen. If someone is committed to learning and bettering themselves, the opportunities are endless. They offer all sorts of training, some ot even job related. There is job security just in the fact that the airport never shuts down. There is usually plenty of opportunities for overtime also. I would highly recommend DFW International Airport for long term employment.
Pros
benefits, advancement, training, job security
Cons
long drive into work for me

Great place to Intern, easy going laid back people.
Logistics and Supply Chain Intern (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXSeptember 22, 2014
Everyday brought new experiences, with great learning opportunities.

I learned first hand about the public sector of business and how it differs from private.

Management is great, and communicates within the company. The managers don't feel distant to their employees.

Everyone was laid back and easy going, the company has done a great job of hiring people with great but diverse personalities.

The hardest part of the job is learning how the company differs from a private company. There are many hurdles due to the public nature of the job, that normally would be an easy solution for a private company.

The most enjoyable part of the job, is working with the people around you. Great team environment.
Pros
Very independent work environment. Great amount of freedom.
Cons
Projects don't move as fast as you would like, due to legal hurdles set in place in public sector.

Professional Executive
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  DFW Airport, Texas 75261May 2, 2014
I have learned a lot in this position and have been stretched. If you can find a "Professional" and respectful supervisor, it is a great place to work.

Job security is very good if you do your job and do not deviate from your responsibilities and act responsibly and professionally.

In the said statements above, I would recommend employment at the airport.
Pros
Beneftis & Retirement are good.
Cons
At times there is back-biting and drama, if you are strong you can survive, its' all in how you handle this. Attitude is everything (a good attitude).

Stable Organization. Little Chance for Advancement
SharePoint Administrator/Developer (Former Employee) –  DFW Airport, TXApril 14, 2014
I left the airport because I felt the need to be constantly challenged. Also, there was little chance for advancement. In the IT field, one needs to be constantly challenged.
