We are Metro, we do safety and regulations. We move 200k people safely throughout the DC Metro area. I am part of a team responsible for identifying fatigue employees, bus/rail accidents, and GIS information rolled up in a SharePoint integrated web portal and we do it well or here at Metro if you can't do the job they find someone who can. My job is mission critical and very stressful at times. WMATA has the largest IT organization in the US. Yes, bigger than NYC Transit.
I found the System Maintenance section, rank and file to be an almost family like atmosphere to be in.... We went to each other weddings, births....and yes funerals. From my point of view, at my level, we looked out for one another... Now the job was not line infantry (you had the prediction factor on your side, whereas in the Army you did not), sometimes misinformation or NO information could mean trouble... But on the whole System Maintenance was a great place to be.
Start with HR and revamp the company from the ground up. I have yet to be given a pc to perform my work duties and have to share with another employee.
