Pros: awesome work-life balance and decent mid-career level pay
Cons: vulnerable to political change and not a place to make a name in the industry
Worked temporarily in the planning and capital programming division. Management is great about its employees having a work-life balance and treat all employees as professionals. They expect the job to be done well, but don't micro manage on how to get the job done at all. This is rare at its modal agency, SHA. Pay is also better here than at the modal administrations. Its a small office though and vulnerable to political change. Also, not a place you will gain much recognition in the industry as it plays mostly an administrative role rather than technical role in transportation.
