    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a good set of core values and is run with a very good strategic focus. Currently the company is very strong because of its position in some key markets and working for a company that is successful and growing always a plus. The benefits are slightly above average, and there is some training.

    Cons

    The business unit where I am employed is run with little to no professionalism whatsoever. Which is a shame because the childishness that pervades the management of the unit prevents the unit from being a really great place to work and and the job from being a great one. I would agree that career advancement is something that many cannot look forward to. There isn't a strong promote from within motivation. I would be surprised to see myself reaching the 5 year mark with Trinity.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to take a serious look at the way each business unit is managed fundamentally, not just at the quarterly bottom line. Times are good right now, but there is much room for improvement in the management and organization of the company.

    Benefits nice. Growing company with lots of opportunities for people at all levels. Looking for ways to innovate and become even more profitable.

    A place where those with history don't have time or room for newcomers even though they hired them. Struggling a bit with rapid growth.

    Responded right away when I applied to the job

    The salary was 60-65k a year with 75% travel

    Increase salary ranges - not enough when you want people to travel 75%

    Pros

    Made some wonderful lifelong friends that are on the same work level as I am. The experience you recieve is rewarding and useful.

    Cons

    In the past work was very plentiful and you were allow to work as much as you need to. Some of the benefits are not as great as they use to be. Morale is poor. Communication between lower management and employee is extremely poor.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs to take a concern interest in lower management decisions. Overall management needs to listen to the concerns and opinions of the employees that are out in the field.

    Pros

    Benefits are in line with industry standards. Strarting to use technology to advance company. Somewhat behind with other industries because old habits change slowly.

    Cons

    Head strong management. Older industry with older ideas and outdated thoughts. As management retires, company is getting better. Still a good company.

    Advice to Management

    Manegers need to get some new ideas from younger upcoming professional coming out of college. Need to pay these rising starts a premium in line with other competitors salaries in order to bring them on board.
