Overall a fun place to work. Pay rate was good. Made a lot of friends. Management needed more knowledge. Sorry that the contract ended.

Stay away from this place, management is horrible and there is no room for advancement unless they like you.

Serious backstabbing, don’t apply here unless you know someone actually working there.

I was with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), which is one of many operating agencies of the USDOT. I was at the McLean, VA location in R&D. The environment is very pleasant there with free parking, though there's no Metro access.

The workplace environment was relaxed and business casual attire primarily with primarily cubicle type office style. There is a gym and plenty of outside space for walking with little traffic and noise.


There was a rapid change in the management over the last several years as people retired or moved on.


The hardest part of the job was keeping up with changing requirements in the acquisitions and publications departments.


The most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to influence direction of future highway technology.
Pros
Free parking, beautiful campus
Cons
No food within walking distance. No Metro access. Distance from USDOT HQ.

I worked in data entry and data management which required excellent time management skills, organization skills and attention to details which can be a bit overwhelming at times but in a work environment where you have the support of the entire department it make your work life alot easier. Everyone is willing to help each other and are always friendly.
