    Current Employee - Engineer in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many different industries from Rail, Utility Structures, Wind Towers, LPG (Liquid Propane Gas), Facilities and General Maintenance, Marine, and Highway Products. If it involves steel they make it. When one industry is going through a down period the other industries are booming - so it balances.

    Cons

    Opportunities to be promoted from within are very slim to non-existent. They usually hire from the outside for those positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promoting existing employees rather than looking to the outside.

    I worked at Trinity Industries as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    1) Ability to enhance your skills, try new tools and explore its feasibility to ease redundant tasks.
    2) Good support from colleagues
    3) Excellent pay

    Cons

    1) IT department needs to grow at a quick pace
    2) They need to understand the importance and the gains which IT can provide to the company apart from being a cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training could be provided to IT interns and they can be molded into future employees.

    Pros

    A very fair company. No union means no union dues and the company treats it's employees fairly and with a sense of respect. Good hours. Company issued personal protective gear including annual safety boots.

    Cons

    I am currently having some difficulty finding requirements for advancement to next operator level. This appears to be an issue with a number of employees not just myself. I intend to persue the matter, though, and expect that I will be able to get satisfactory results.
