    I worked at TxDOT full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most employees arrive around 08:30am even though start time is 08:00am, they then take a break from 1000-1015am and walk around outside the buildings, you can leave for lunch by 1145am and not return until 1:30Pm (they allow you to take 30 minutes to walk or exercise from 1:00-1:30pm). They provide showers in the building so you can shower after your walk from 1:30-2:00 pm. You then get another break from 3:00-3:15pm for another walk outside around the buildings. Most employees are headed home by 4:45pm. TXDOT allows you to receive a 30 minute massage (you must pay for it) downstairs in the office building for 30 minutes once a month and you can take Yoga in the building as well, once a month, all while on the clock. Directors and Mangers are seldom in the office, out traveling or somewhere?

    Cons

    TXDOT secretly monitors everything you do,on your office phone, your computer, your TXDOT cell phone and TXDOT vehicles like Nazi Gestapo's and the KGB. You have absolutely no privacy even if you are doing nothing wrong. Way to bureaucratic, to many controls, its ok if you are a TXDOT minion. You need to get approval from way to many individuals in order to do something, i.e. if you need to pass gas get permission from 3 people and then TXDOT requires an air permit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees until they prove otherwise. Start enforcing the 0800 start time, do away with all the breaks and luxuries (Yoga classes, messages, etc..), so that the Texas Tax payers get a full 8 hour day out of TXDOT employees, and then you wonder why our roads are in the condition they are.
