    Negative Outlook

    I worked at TxDOT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * reasonable work hours; almost always 40, unless you want to do more.

    Cons

    * below market salary rates
    * lack of mentoring / direction for new employees
    * lots of arbitrary deadlines
    * culture of poor communication. employees on the ground have little chance of knowing what's actually going on.
    * lots of administrative overhead (detailed timesheets, status reports, a fair number of unnecessary meetings)
    * large bureaucracy makes it difficult to get things done
    * management never makes changes in response to feedback

    Advice to Management

    Basically, you have no trust or respect from the employees whatsoever. Management only appears to be interested in cost-cutting and outsourcing, and is destroying the organizational culture. Employees in the halls talk openly about when they're "getting out." Without exaggeration, I can say that this is the worst management I've ever seen, and they could hardly do worse if they were trying.
