IT Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCApril 1, 2012
A typical day is finding a balance between daily operations and project work. Sometimes, the day is full of upgrades. Other days, we plan future and current projects. It's definately an environment fueled by learning and innovation. My team is small, so we each do it all. It's not uncommon to be helping with printer problems one minute, and talking about engineering a new email system the next. Overall, it's a great place to work in information technology.
Pros
get to play with all the latest technology
Cons
work life balance

Human Services Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCOctober 8, 2012
Management was not skilled at working with others and being true team players. The hardest part about my job was being so overwhelmed with my daily duties. The greatest part about my job was finding permanent homes for children in foster care.
Pros
catered lunches
Cons
no overtime pay

Intern work in the government
Internship in Transportation Planning Board (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 9, 2013
I had a great time with MWCOG. The knowledge and experience I gained from them is something I will cherish forever. I worked as an engineering intern because, at the time, it was my major in college. My co-workers and supervisors were all extremely friendly and helpful and assisted me in performing my job duties in a more efficient manner. i attended various meetings and met some very important people. I would love to work for MWCOG again, should they ever need me.
Pros
government experience, attended important meetings, engineering experience
Cons
time with company was brief
