Pros

The people are great, and the types of jobs within the organization are almost unlimited. There really is something for everybody.

Cons

Advancement is based more on seniority than performance. If you want to speed up the process at all, don't just be the best at your job, be ready to move...multiple times all over the state.

Advice to Management

Cut some dead wood, and give younger employees the opportunity to advance their careers.

    Pros

    Working at TxDOT really was a family environment. It always seemed like everyone knew everyone...even though there are 12k employees! Very secure place to work. And the work was never dull.

    Cons

    Changes in upper-level management (administration) and persistent reorganizations have changed the culture somewhat over the past few years - people seem to feel a bit less secure in their jobs, and feel less appreciated and understood under this new leadership. Additionally, the culture has suffered a bit from a large number of retirements, with vacancies filled mostly from outside the organization, rather than promoting from within, which has damaged morale.

    Advice to Management

    TxDOT became the nation's best DOT because of it's people. Value them, empower them, and let them do their jobs - they won't let you down.
