Good at first, but it devolved into more difficult as I was forced into an unwanted transfer.

Pros

Benefits are provided, a professional attitude.

Cons

Sometimes a hard won position can be negated by computer upgrades and you could be sent into a Quota-mad work section.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As long as management continues to work with quotas, quality will ALWAYS suffer, and the efforts of safety-minded data will be tainted.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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