Poor work environmentSep 4, 2014 - Systems Analyst in Austin, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Very little stress. However, many employees here believe there is stress in the workplace, but they haven't worked in the private sector and do not know the stress of when your job is on the line. Other pro is the benefits and additional weird days off on top of the standard holidays.
Incompetent managers. Politics are thick here -- very difficult to break the barrier if the 'influential' people are not on your side.Continue reading

One of the worst jobs I have ever hadMar 7, 2022 - Attorney in Austin, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Free health insurance is available, and time off is ok, you get off state holidays.
Very high turnover- 43% in one department. Legal has very high turnover rate with constant vacancies. Legal department is poorly run with lots of yelling and accusations. You will not be treated as an adult professional. Lot of fragile egos in management and managers who are emotionally volatile under stress. Do not work here-the salary is low compared to other state agencies and the toxicity is too high. If you are fat, legal probably won't hire you anyway.Continue reading

Unprofessional, inconsistent, and in desperate need of reorganization at the management levelJan 25, 2017 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
it's better than living on the streets
Management is unprofessional, inconsistent, & not willing to take accountability. Managers and senior examiners bully staff to the point of quick and constant turnover.. Some management has very little experience in the industry, which contributes to false projections and unreasonable expectations. Just look at the job openings; when you see the same job posted over and over again, for months, there is clearly a problem, yet the Executive branch is so disengaged that they don't bother to investigate. Texans should be outraged that tax dollars are being utilized this way.Continue reading

Excellent work culture and environmentApr 18, 2018 - Administrative Assistant IV in Angleton, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I have been working for TDI as a Temp Contractor for 5 months now. The team work is the best I have seen in my work history in probably the last 30 years. Everyone is considerate of each other , respectful, and they help each other because they care, not because they feel they have to. Although I don't have vacation pay to be able to take off when needed, right off the bat the Windstorm Manager told me to make sure and let him if I needed to take time off at any time and he mentioned to others right after I started to consider I might need days off as well. The team leader leads positively by example. He encourages the new comers and trainee inspectors. The inspectors all work well together and it is obvious that having such a positive encouraging office culture is one of the motivators for employees. The admin I work with enjoys engaging everyone and helps in any way she can. Although my contract will be ending with no opportunity at this point for permanent employment I would definitely work here if presented the opportunity. I was able to learn a great deal in a short time and was also given the chance to work remotely for another site while stationed at another office.
I honestly can't think of any. Where it became extremely very busy with phone calls and inspection requests that is just part of the job and to some during a disaster this might be considered a con. For me, it was an excellent example of being able to learn a lot in a short time.Continue reading
