Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 13, 2018
A highly siloed organization which is at the cutting edge in production but where other groups lag way behind in action and responsibility. In fact the team I worked with work management asked for.did not have the tools, and will not have them in the near future, to do the job required by management. Information does not flow easily between the different. departments of the organization. My group was barely capable of reporting to the Board of Directors, most data and relevant decisions were being made by other production groups. Personnel highly capable and do the best possible with the limited tools at their disposal. An enjoyable environment for international personnel, our team was heavily skewed to West African and Caribbean individuals.
High quality personnel, easy going environment
Highly bureacratic, little management and lack of adequate toolls to work
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – April 13, 2018
Typical day at work consists of a lot of politics. Many people have been promoted and are not prepared for the positions they hold. Management lacks care of employees and the morale has declined over the years.
It is a pretty laid back place to work. The coworkers will look out for you most of the time.

Normally, I would compared client invoice and reconcile budget data between the contractor and Capital Paving using excel and shadowed inspectors on construction sites whenever they are going to the field.
Liaison (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 21, 2018
It's what you make it. This was an internship so I didn't get the real experience of working there but what I observed was an overall average work environment. Training is excellent, work is plentiful, some departments are better than others.
Electrician (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – January 30, 2018
The headline is self-explanatory. The working climate is poor and advancement is unlikely. The turnover is quick and it smells horribly. The safety is not adhered to and harassment of all kinds is rampant.
It's an OK place of work depending on who you work for/with
Manager (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – January 4, 2018
The culture here at DC Water is utterly terrible. There are people here who literally drain the energy and positivity out of the room and make it extremely difficult to get anything done or help the Authority move forward. Many employees are stuck in their ways and stuck on the old ways of doing things. The HR practices and tools have not been very progressive or even contemporary. However, the new leadership is trying to more in that direction.
free parking, on-site cafeteria, and "gym"
smell, the fact that your salary is posted online, gossip, the fact that incompetent and toxic people are not shown the door
Enjoyed the time i'v been here, it just time to move on

Customer Account Representative (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – November 17, 2017
I would recommend working at DC Water if you have a degree or specific field of expertise that you are skilled in. Associates seem to get a bad rap most times due to the management team's underhandedness.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 16, 2017
It was a great experience. I learned a lot, worked with people from different backgrounds and culture. They encourage diversity.I would reccommend this place to someone who wants and loves to work in the utility industry.
Customer Service Manager - Meter & Field Services (Current Employee) – Washington City, DC – November 13, 2017
DC Water is on the cutting edge of innovation with bioenergy and green infrastructure projects. The executive management team is supportive of the strategic goals and strives to ensure that all employees are aligned with the company vision.
Safety Consultant (Former Employee) – Wasjhington DC – November 5, 2017
If my contract hadn't ended I would still be there. Major construction projects on an on going basis. Interesting challenges on working with all types of construction companies. Management was supportive and listened closely to what was shared with them on a professional basis.
Secretary/Procurement Analyst (Former Employee) – Washington DC – October 11, 2017
My years at DC Water were very good years, I was Reduction in forced in 2003, I would have stayed until full retirement. New Management took over and displaced government employees and turned over plant to a private agency.
