    I worked at TxDOT

    Pros

    Mostly great people to work with. Paid vacation, comp time, many paid holidays, 8-10 hours some on 4-day work week, varied types of work, usually good supervisors, managers are far off in their glass houses--rarely come out, many safe practices and equipment, many types of training to learn, can move lateral or up, high school summer hire program, college scholarships, pension, 401K and 457, medical, life ins

    Cons

    Flood, ice & accident work on highways, drivers almost running over you & cursing you, favoritism (as any job), fair pay now, slugs who won't work & get away with it at your expense, TX govt controls purse string limiting how much funds received, not enough funds for repairs. A few supervisors no balls and won't stand up for you--take credit for everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mgt needs to check on superiors more often and "drive" the roads. Sick of hearing "TX DOT transparency"--move on. New payroll, purchasing (and more) software sucks! Doesn't make job easier or faster--added more work in office and less time on road doing road repairs--wake up and quit taking low bid!! Some inspectors don't hold contractors to specs.

    Micro management, inability to be flexible and think creatively, lack of candor, fear-based and reactive rather than proactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your people have some latitude esp. if they have proven themselves and have great ideas.
