  1. Favoritism, nepotism, engineer-centrism, and to a lesser degree, tenure, are the names of the game here.

    Former Employee - Lab Personnel in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Lab Personnel in Austin, TX

    I worked at TxDOT full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They do have good health benefit, sick leave, and vacation leave days.

    Cons

    If you are not an engineer, part of the "good ol' boys or GIRLS club, or related (PROTECTED) by a person in an upper position, you can forget about moving up. TxDOT has the mentality that being an engineer means you can also MANAGE people which is obviously (go ahead and ask any younger to middle-aged NON-engineer and ask them if that's true) not reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wouldn't listen anyway.

    Former Employee - Intern in Pharr, TX
    Former Employee - Intern in Pharr, TX

    I worked at TxDOT part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for starting/entry level workers, nice pay for experience workers, preferably engineers and professionals...They have great compensation and benefits for employees and even entry level workers...Have the option of working inside and outside...high standards

    Cons

    not great pay for human resources people, and people that run the backbone....Dealt with rough relations with other employees...One time I received a threatening letter from a former employee, but he was not in the right mind, and so that is what my supervisor advised me to say and remember

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to supervise staff more, make sure they are working...Handle workers more efficiently
