Fast paced work environment. Communication skills are a must.
Management work to make you a better person. They do their best to help you with your goals.

The volume of work and the appreciation of a job well done.

At one time this was a very enjoyable place to work
Telecommunications Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 9, 2018
The organization changed drastically based of the negative press that they received from the Federal Government & Washington Post. Some vice president's were removed and departments were abolished. At one time it was a very desirable place to be employed but I cannot speak on the new administration since I am no longer there..
Pros
Enjoyed the staff and the customers
Cons
hired individuals from their prior jobs to receive prime positions

Airport Ambassador (Former Employee) –  Dulles, VAJune 28, 2018
As with any other airport, Dulles was a very fast paced place to work at. Nonetheless, it is a lively place to work and is full of opportunities. I only worked part time, so I was not able to experience the benefits of a full time job there, but I do look forward to continue working within their realm in the future.

Proficient Work Environment
Police Officer (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VA 22202June 22, 2018
The work environment was proficient enough to get me through the academy and provide extensive training concerning Law Enforcement.

Every staff member was completely invested in the success of their employees.

There were organized class sessions to help keep me trained and up to date. There were also ample time for personal training for employees to keep in shape.

The most enjoyable part of the job was talking to and meeting new employees who had many years under their belt and could explain the daily life of a police officer.
Pros
Teamwork environment
Cons
Didn't get to meet everyone

Corporate Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VAMarch 10, 2018
Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority was a nice place to work. The atmosphere is competitive. I would recommend MWAA to potential employees because it is a fast paced environment for the social butterflies willing to express themselves and get their hands into the nit and grit of the work environment.

Identity Crisis
Auditor (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VANovember 6, 2017
Not a government entity but likes to operate as one internally. Org that needs to get with times regarding flexibility and technology (no telework, flex schedules). Offers pension (vested after 5 years). paid time off like federal government. Culture slow to change. Honestly don't see how they plan to retain younger employees.

Very intelligent leadership team, but can come across as too narrow focused.
Cons
no telework, no flex schedules

MWAA has a good work culture and is a great place to work.
