What is your most memorable experience during your time here at MDW?
I've been a part of this organization for eight years and the most memorable experience for me is the "Organizational Staff Event Day." This is an annual event that really gives back to the command staff members, family and friends. This event provides an opportunity to contribute to team building events, exchange greetings and invest in conversation. It is a day when we can say, "Thank you" and "Job Well Done" for all the work efforts and support throughout the year. Great Day full of "GO TEAM Spirit."
Would you recommend working here to other federal employees? Yes, I would recommend any federal employee to work here. This is a dynamic and visionary organization that strives to be the best and provides forward thinking support to our Nations Leaders. You'll become a part of a, "Family" not a "Workforce" and we take care of each other in mission, career and life endeavors. This is an environment that emanates strong support for work/life balance. You'll be able to gain legacy experiences here and build life long career relationships as well as lifelong friendships.
