Great Culture, Quality Personnel, Great Internal L&D Courses, Paid Family Leave, 8% 401k Match and other College Savings Plans, Many Opportunities for Advancement due to internal postings/turnover. Great Benefits. Rarely are you pressured/expected to work more than 40hrs/week. Work Life Balance has been great!
Job specific training and onboarding not existent. Drinking from a water hose/fast learner required. Compensation claims to align with the market, which may be true for base salary, but most of the market compensation includes annual bonus, raises above cost of living without formal promotion. PTO policy changed significantly after being hired. (Limiting annual PTO Rollovers to 40hrs. Every 5yrs of Service gets you an additional 2days of PTO. Most places I have worked is that 5yrs gets you an additional week of PTO. No limits to Rollovers since it's your time to use. At a minimum they should offer to buy your time back instead of forcing you to use it.)

Wide range of skills to hone on and learn about infrastructure of our state.
Complicated inefficient processes that take away from real success and accomplishments

Life balance is the best They won't overwork you Good benefits
You won't learn much You won't advance if you don't know somebody
- 4.0Aug 17, 2023EngineerCurrent EmployeeAustin, TX
The working culture here is better than anywhere else I have ever been. The place is filled with honest, hard working individuals that do look out for each other.
Salaries tend not to be on the upper side of the range and the size of the company leaves growth opportunities smaller than that of a large corporation.

Benefits are good, (Most) coworkers are respectful
No proper onboarding process. Endless politics that your responsibilities are unclear. You're kept on your toes all the time which leads to lots of stress.
- 3.0Jul 30, 2023Park AssistantCurrent Employee, less than 1 year
the work is fun and there is a lot of room to explore because there is access to a lot of money from LCRA
The way that they hire so many people from outside contractors to avoid giving benefits leaves a bad taste in the mouth. It's also unclear what the organization's actual values are when it comes to conservation
- 5.0Jul 13, 2023EngineerCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearAustin, TX
LCRA has alot of coffee options and tea selections. They are responsive to people's concerns and have an open door policy. This may not be helpful to everyone but I'm sure most reviews arent these days due to the new requirements
There are also may cons at LCRA revolving around staff inadequacy and the increased workload due to more immigration into Texas
- 2.0Aug 14, 2023Project ManagementCurrent Employee, more than 5 yearsAustin, TX
People, 401K matching is great, good for starting your career.
Politics in the office between departments, leadership that has been in place for too long
- 5.0Jul 7, 2023Anonymous EmployeeCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsAustin, TX
Clear mission, collaboration comes naturally, safety is a priority,
Difficult to compete with market salaries
