Great career choice! Although, in the last decade there has been a decline in employee morale.

I worked at TxDOT full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Typically a very stable and satisfying place to work. Given the American corporate culture of today, it is still better to serve in State Government.

Cons

Constant change created by the legislative political environment weighs heavy on employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work, you have an enormous customer base to keep satisfied. Remember, it cannot all be run from the top...allow the districts to share the decision making.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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