Disappointing in recognition of diligence, respect and lack of advancement in salary raises.

Pros

Working with the public to help them get answers to their questions and action for their needs when something needs attention on the 80,000 miles of roads maintained.

Cons

A great deal of favoritism and cronyism exists while favorites are recognized and advanced and concern for other employees is practically nonexistent.

Advice to Management

Cultivate equality of pay for equal work among employees and to encourage supervisors to be more fair and even-handed.

    Pros

    Great projects to work on
    Experience within how TxDOT works, this can be really helpful as a private consultant
    Job security

    Cons

    Felt like a really antiquated work environment
    Pay isn't as good as private sector


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

    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 Management

    They wouldn't listen anyway.
