Great Place To Work If You Don't Care About Accomplishing Anything
Supervising Engineer (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NY – May 24, 2018
If you don't have a problem being a hamster in a wheel, the Port Authority is a great place to work. If you want to make a difference, be innovative, and fairly compensated, you may end up being miserable.

Amazing projects and properties; frustrating bureaucracy and politics
Project Manager, World Trade Center Retail Project (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 12, 2018
Staff in general are helpful, productive and want to help build big and impactful projects. However, the politics of bureaucracy stifles creativity in an effort to be safe. Being a public agency creates administrative obstacles and staff is not empowered to make quick work-a-day decisions.
Police Officer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 11, 2018
Worked in a fast pace environment that had room for advancement. Dealt with all different types of people. Never knew what was going to happen on a day to day bases. Hardest part was dealing with accientent victims or people who had over doses or slip and fall. The sense of helping others was great.
Assistant Resident Engineer (Former Employee) – NYC, NY – April 3, 2018
The problem with this organization is that the Facilities own the Projects therefore Construction Management Division is under that bunch of Primadonas without experience in Construction to decide the speed of the Projects creating trouble not only to CMD but also to the Contractors. That situation generates Claims which involves waste of money to the PA not only by hiring Consultants to deal with Claims but also to pay for those claims millions of dollars for delays in court. Since PA never wants to review the Claims clause internally that situation will increase the waste of money exponentially.
Assistant Human Resources Service (Temporary) (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 2, 2018
I normally worked independently providing multiple information for active and retire employees in all areas of assessment, compensation, policies and job summary. I learned how to approach employees from over 15 different unions, with different management platform. It was a hard job because I had to constantly investigate, compile research, promote and provided statistical analyses of applicants for all open positions, including appointments, background investigations and letters for inquire. Working with retirees was the enjoyable part of the job. People with disability, with many years of work, with different types of benefits were they needed help was the most overwhelming and successful part of me work.

Employee (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 8, 2018
Management will keep on increasing your workload without giving you any additional staff resources. Employees are not supported by executive management, who will throw you under the bus at the first opportunity.
Intern (Former Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – March 6, 2018
It is a very move at your own pace job. You do have deadlines of course, but other than that you can work on projects that you must complete within your time frame. Occasionally your superior will check in but it is relaxed.
Every division had a different responsibility. We all worked towards a common goal. Excellence

Executive Secretary - Director of Transportation (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 25, 2018
I worked at the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey as an Administrative Assistant to the Director of Transportation. I was privileged to learn about the inner workings of the Agency. A good environment to build great relationships with my colleagues.
Since the Port Authority is such a specialized industry, there was little room for advancement. However, wages and benefits were decent.
As a quasi government agency, the Port Authority was uniquely managed by both the states of New York and New Jersey.
I enjoyed my job was uncomfortable with going to work at the World Trade Center at that time.
