    Pros

    Responded right away when I applied to the job

    The salary was 60-65k a year with 75% travel

    Increase salary ranges - not enough when you want people to travel 75%

    Pros

    Made some wonderful lifelong friends that are on the same work level as I am. The experience you recieve is rewarding and useful.

    Cons

    In the past work was very plentiful and you were allow to work as much as you need to. Some of the benefits are not as great as they use to be. Morale is poor. Communication between lower management and employee is extremely poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to take a concern interest in lower management decisions. Overall management needs to listen to the concerns and opinions of the employees that are out in the field.

    I have been working at Trinity Industries

    Pros

    Benefits are in line with industry standards. Strarting to use technology to advance company. Somewhat behind with other industries because old habits change slowly.

    Cons

    Head strong management. Older industry with older ideas and outdated thoughts. As management retires, company is getting better. Still a good company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manegers need to get some new ideas from younger upcoming professional coming out of college. Need to pay these rising starts a premium in line with other competitors salaries in order to bring them on board.
