    Pros

    TxDOT offers a good benefits package, ample vacation/sick time, and a stable job where you could feasibly work for the rest of your working life.

    Cons

    TxDOT, even though a PUBLIC sector company, fancies itself an engineering firm. This having been said, if you are not following an educational civil engineering path you can all but forget about career advancement. Important areas such as IT, accounting, and Business Admin. are secondary and even tertiary to engineering. Also, performance takes a backseat to preference when it comes to fair performance evaluations. If you ask questions be prepared to one day take a knife out of your back.

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason TxDOT is getting such a bad rap and it's not because of the regular employees. Retirees are leaving in record amounts. My advice is just because you have a title does not mean you are ENTITLED. Just like the independent audit stated recently "start rewarding the performers and stop ignoring the problem makers". If, in fact, we are supposed to provide topnotch service to the public, such service needs to start in-house.

    I have been working at TxDOT full-time

    Pros

    Stable work with flexibility to tend to family matters for most positions

    Cons

    Working for the government means being constant source of frustration for your neighbors and being constantly scrutinized by the community. Pay is lower than most private sector counterparts. Pay raises and bonuses are absolutely minimal.
