The Worst Place You Want To Be
Anonymous (Former Employee), Arlington, VAAugust 21, 2015
Pros: Pension
Cons: No breaks, long meetings, no work life balance, obnoxious managers
A very chaotic/cut-throat work environment. Poor management with unrealistic expectation and no support.

No work/life balance and you are required to work excruciating long work and weekends are the normal. Technology there always have issues and cause a lot of down time.

Productive fun workplace with a great group of coworkers
Print shop Summer intern (Former Employee), Dulles, VAJanuary 2, 2015
I learned so much about how the airport works and a new side of the graphics industry by working at the Print/Sign shop. We got to go to many different parts of the airport replacing signs or adding new ones even designing stuff for new airlines coming into the airport. I could not be more grateful for all that the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has done for me.

Audit Senior (Current Employee), Washington DCJuly 18, 2013
Pros: free mass transit
Cons: media meddling
A typical day at work is to attend meetings, conduct fieldwork and write reports. I've learned multiple discipline in the aviation industry as well as the regulations impacting the aviation industry. My co-workers are great, I enjoy dealing with them most of the time. We respect each and everyone's privacy. The hardest part of the job is when you work at something at a very pressing deadline. The most enjoyable part of the job is the authority's health initiative. We are encouraged to walk, exercise, get physical.
